My intended purpose for traveling to the Land Down Under was one of continued awareness, understanding of the cultural significance and its impact and relation to the modern world, the uncontrolled and wild effects of roque fires and its havoc on local industries, wildlife, and land, and the continued perspective of viewing the world from a place of deeper understanding rather than superfluous media exposure that often fails to capture the truth behind the facts. Australia indeed requires our attention, if not for relief in its current condition, then for its importance as a uniquely biodiverse continent containing a plethora of natural wonders and species, and an indigenous community that spans some of the oldest people presiding on our planet. In fact, I left Sweets Lagoon, in a small helicopter, pondering more questions than I had answers for, spurring the inevitable notion that I would return.
