Discovering Olegas Truchanas During Dinner

Keith Lyons, Clyde Street, Nov 15, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

It's interesting to read Keith Lyons discovering. I first discovered him on the side of a building as I prepared to leave Strahan, Tasmania, and documented it here: "If we can revise our attitudes towards the land under our feet, if we can accept a role of steward, and depart from the role of conqueror, if we can accept the view than man and nature are inseparable parts of the unified whole - then Tasmania can be a shining beacon in a dull, uniform, and largely artificial world." Olegas Truchanas, 1971. And I wrote, "as I stood before this building in the wind and the rain in Strahan, waiting for my bus, I realized, that we have been and are doing the same thing to ourselves as we have to the trees and the forests, and that the same thing that will save Tasmania, will save me."
