Strider RIP

Thanks for catching me in your web brother... Anansi is an African folktale character. He is a spider, but often acts and appears as a man and is considered to be the spirit of all knowledge of stories. Nyame rewarded him by making him the god of all stories. Anansi is synonymous with skill and wisdom in speech. He is often celebrated as a symbol of slave resistance and survival. He is able to turn the table on his powerful oppressors using his cunning and trickery.

They say all good things come to an end. Strider kept important conversations going, inspired many and reminded so many of us of what was really important. Ideas, perspectives and passions fuelled will live on.

Strider's Almanac Part 1 - How the rainy season began in 2012 - The Northern Myth

Hip Strider It was about 47 years ago that I transplanted this Barringtona tree from the Elizabeth River to Rapid Creek. It has had many children since then. Today I took 2 of its grandchildren to Lakewood at Humpty doo. The arrival of Water Buffalo caused its local extinction in many places. It was the first tree to go. I am very happy to have played a part in bringing it back, to some places.

Well that is it for this facebook session. The aerial part of this Cycad grew back after the 1920 Oodnadatta Fire.Many Cycads near Darwin tell the same story. There has been little or no new recruitment to the upper stratum of the forest here since (about) 1920 as I read the signs. Cheers

A gully in the rainy hills. Photographed during my Xmas break 2011. Low Xanothostemon paradoxus trees, and the trunk of a very thick (old) Eucalyptus dichromophloia tree in the middle distance. The dog-person is called Marla.

Towards the tail end of the party there were just three men still standing. This is view of the house that they had from their little gathering in the garden.

It was very nice to be given an award for my work in the anti-nuke-movement, in Darwin the other night. And the Geiger Counter that I was given as a "retirement present" (the Inspector Alert) is a really deadly "new toy". Thank you so much. Cheers.
