Many years down the track and still we fight on… on so many levels.
Looking back at what now seem idyllic, positive times, I recall a local newspaper started by a Buddhist woman back in the ’90s… a ‘Good News’ paper. It was so calming and feelgood to find out good things people had done or accomplished. Didn’t last for too long but it was a revelatory read while it did.
Maybe there’s just way too much negative shit going on as we stare down the approaching apocalypse. But perhaps The Echo could contemplate even a small regular column with this positive bent in mind? We don’t want the community getting worn down with negativity and depression so perhaps a bit of good news is in order?
One good thing happening this past week was the Mind Medicine Australia Symposium held in Byron Bay – the work of this charitable organisation out to change the world of mental health.
I would love to read a Good News column especially as we’ve lost the lovely other-worldly input of Mary Gardner.
