PREFACE

I have here used the Australian Grass Tree as background for these 'Pause a Minute' thoughts. There are so many growing on "Tarkarendi", especially in inaccessible places. Each season I watch them and am fascinated by them and the life lessons they can be seen to exemplify.

They certainly do not rush in their growing. They have great resilience in their own environment, in good seasons or in bad.

When fire attacks, they erupt into furious fireworks--a veritable kaleidoscope of sparks--as the flame catches the long, cylindrical leaves.

But when the fire passes, leaving blackened trunks, they recover--in the Spring, again sending up the tight cluster of spikes, which as Summer unfolds, separate, to form a perfect shimmering sphere, glowing in the Summer sun. Brushed by animals, buffeted by wind, the leaves return to their appointed place in the sphere.

In good times of your life, may you glow where you are; when storms of life attack, may you return to your 'place' and in the longevity of years, may you endure, scarred but upright, like the Grass Tree.
