I have done many things in my 68 years, one of them was hang around CERES environmental park in Naarm/Melbourne where I went from being the World’s Greatest Volunteer to a board member for 7 years after a very strange invitation by the team leaders one stormy winter night.
CERES is a 5 acre city farm that used to be the Brunswick tip. A group of hippies got together 40 years ago and put the idea to turn the tip into a farm. The only problem being they had energy but no money. Some liberated councillors at the time gave it to them for the acorn rent of $1 a year which it has remained at over the time, CERES is now a multi million dollar business.
Two of its features have been the Cafe and the playground where the rainbow people could bring their rainbow children and meet their Mothers Groups, on a Saturday 900 cups of coffee would be sold. I think it is up to the third generation of this happening. Mothers who were brought by their mothers are returning with their offspring.
I had not been for ages and went there to renew my membership last Saturday. I did not know The Olives to Oil festival was on. The local councils set up a drop off spot for your olives and you get them pressed into oil as a community service, I have never seen that many olives in one place in my life.
But back to the Rainbow kids. As always there was entertainment. I knew them Santirino is an traditional Italian band who also do the tarantella if the weather allows for it, unfortunately this was not the case on Saturday. Rosa sang beautifully, I. had forgotten how beautiful she is, so full of vitality and passion. My mate Phil was on accordion and flute, I have followed his different musical ensembles for over 40 years. This is one of the better ones.
At the end of their first set Rosa announced they had a special guest. A young teenager, at the most 12 or 13 approached the stage and did this amazing French number with so much confidence it belied her tender years. I overheard her mum say she could speak and sing in 6 languages. She was definitely one of CERES rainbow children.
It restored my faith that humanity does not have the people in our society that will save the planet, we have the rainbow children. The last generation have moved on and formed Extinction Rebellion across the planet. They know what it takes.
Some wise words from Marc and Angel Chernoff:
life is full of positive experiences. Notice them. Notice the sun warming your skin, the small child learning to walk, and the smiling faces around you. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential by reveling in the beauty of these experiences, and letting them inspire you to be the most positive version of YOU.
What would happen if. you approached each day intentionally, with a positive attitude? What would happen if you you embraced life’s. challenges with a. smile on your face? What would happen if you surrounded yourself with people who made you better? What would happen if you paused long enough to appreciate it all?
