How much can a Koala bear ?

Answering a need. . . .

A group of cyclists stopped to fix a tire (or tyre as they write it down under) and were approached by a Koala bear looking for a drink of water. It may illustrate the severity of the drought which is said to be a major factor in the raging wildfires in Victoria this week.

The key words in the previous sentence - severe, drought, rage, fire - point to underlying issues that bear translation. The images remind us that life is always connected and that the instinctual world does not have to be a foreign country.
