"In 2002, I decided it was time to come back to Australia. With two young children, I chose Tasmania as the perfect place to raise them. Fourteen years have passed and Tasmania is still an inspiration." ~ Esther Shohet
"I hope the image makes you reflect on the beauty and the values we are putting at risk with our greed and desire for material things. Nature is our lifeblood! If this image can make you think about your footprint and demands on this fragile planet and inspire you to make just one change to support its survival, then it is not in vain. I truly hope this metaphoric image does not turn into a prophetic one. Make a difference, NOW, please." ~ Suellen Cook
"Only spread a fern-frond over a man's head and worldly cares are cast out, and freedom and beauty and peace come in." ~ John Muir

"I recently read one of Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories - 'The Cat that Walked by Himself'. It tells the story of how cats came to be domesticated, that is, as domesticated as cats would ever allow themselves to be. It makes a lot of sense about why cats are the way they are, seemingly aloof and slightly arrogant, but those of us who know cats would not really think that for one minute! To us, they are clever, cunning, lovable, endearing but still very much their own cat. Cats without doubt, Walk by Themselves."
