Reflections, thoughts off-the-beaten-path and (in)digestion of current events by a hospital chaplain from Indiana (where we're called Hoosiers) who moved to Australia in June 2008. Taking faith seriously, trying to make a real difference in the lives of people, and seeking to maintain a "balanced" perspective by clowning around on a unicycle and twisting animal balloons as my alter ego: "Clair de L'uni" are some of my favourite ways to journey through life. Grandfatherhood is also exhilarating!
A True Aussie Love Story! (A great bird story kids will love as well!)
About eight years ago a wild Australian Sulphur Crested Cockatoo flewinto a car and broke its wing. The motorist took it to the Vet in Nerang, Queensland, who had to amputate the wing. We adopted her - for whichwe needed a National Parks and Wildlife permit - and kept her in a cage outside where she was often visited by wild Cockatoos.Oneofthethings that impressed us was how she would push lettuceleaves throughthe bars of the cage,offering food to visitors. Last Sundayshe again had a visitor.
