More Old

Talking to Mum about changes. She has seen heaps. Forefront of her mind is the sprawl that has engulfed Cranbourne and creeps every outward. All the fertile farming land going under grids of lot housing sold at grotesque prices to harried families lost in futility. An urban peasantry. The main distinction between these and there medieval cousins is they have an unprecedented opportunity to be healthy. The availability of legal and illegal drugs plus fast and processed food has largly voided this opportunity. For some there is longevity – a descent into joint pain and senility.
Mallacoota is a refuge that despite the unconsciousness of many of it’s, denezines still allows for living with some sort of integrity and purpose.
