    Good observation! Traffic noise is the bane of modern civilization.

    Increases in social services, i.e. government financial assistance to the poor, unemployed, and disabled surely played a role as well.

    Here in the green centre line is an Australian Aboriginal didgeridoo, a long instrument usually resting on the ground, and blown with continual breaths - needing much breath control. An eerie sound sometimes, and very moving and evocative of its history. This is part of an Australian-Asia link 1971, crafts and performers set. IMG_0001.jpg
