• The power of silence
    Validation. Empty space. Selkie, creator of Forest of the Fallen, flew up from Tasmania to tell the ASF Conference how it has grown to 131 powerful displays nation-wide

    The stories sway in the wind, each one a person killed or injured by the covid gene-vaccines.

    The Forest of the Fallen is the exact opposite of a protest.

    When Tasmanian mother-of-three Selkie started the Forest in 2021, she didn’t anticipate the surprising power of acknowledgement.

    “A co-ordinator from Tin Can Bay in Queensland is a narrative therapist and we spoke of the healing impacts the Forest was having on so many lives,” she said.

    For people who were injured, or lost their jobs, or lost a loved one, or suffered division in their families, this simple acknowledgement can bring a tremendous sense of relief just by recognising the suffering.


    “Having a sense of their story being validated by a tactile, optical display - this alone is so healing for them as many have had no recognition at all,” she said.

    “Some are completely left alone.”

    It’s a silent vigil open to any passer-by to wander in and quietly find out what has happened.

    “There are some out there who’ve experienced the loss of a loved one or are injured by the vaccines. They also set up the forests now and this gives them a sense of purpose, knowing that they are far from alone and can at least help to stop the perpetuation of deaths and injuries.”

    Speaking at the Australians for Science and Freedom conference at University of NSW on November 18, Selkie explained the magic of Forest of the Fallen which has now grown to 131 pop-up displays across Australia with more than 550 stories.

    It’s the magic of an empty space.

    Holding a space for sometimes angry people and a confused country that is still in denial

    Selkie said she found that taking herself out of the memorial was the most effective way to allow people to discover for themselves, quietly, what happened, and to process it.

    “All along I’ve stressed the importance on making sure the display is not affiliated with any other group, movement, religion or political party, keeping it open to all sets of eyes with no exclusion and no bias,” she said.

    It’s free from politics, it doesn’t try to change people’s minds. It only has one message: stop looking away.

    “By taking away the mutual judgements and not disturbing the onlooker’s process, it’s allowing them the time to grasp what it is they are standing right in front of.

    “Taking away all other propaganda and signage was important as I saw this, too, deterred onlookers from reading the stories.”

    Selkie said when she first started Forest of the Fallen in 2021, about 95 percent of onlookers were disapproving and outright rude.

    “Today the tables have completely turned and now 95 percent of onlookers are supportive,” Selkie said, and even police have become helpful, sometimes stepping in to protect displays from the rare “angry noodles”.

    “I’m now writing a memoir as it has been a truly profound, incredible journey for me.”

    Selkie, who compiles the PDF master list to print, and coaches all the volunteer co-ordinators, found herself working seven days a week to make the Forests run smoothly, while homeschooling her youngest child.

    The stories used in Forest of the Fallen have been widely reported in corporate media or documented and checked by Jab Injuries Australia, and are willingly shared.

    Letters From Australia helped set up a Forest of the Fallen, and I witnessed the relief: it’s like rain in the desert.

    On November 18 at High Cross Park, Randwick, we set up a forest with the help of Phil Schultz whose brother Barry died 18 days after the Pfizer shot, Bridget from Coogee Stand in the Park, and Loraine from Adelaide.

    Many passers-by had stories of their own.

    A bright young Russian with sparkling blue eyes told of how his wife died not long after the gene-vaccine, but he was sure it was not related. Then he ran to the shops and bought us chocolates, and promised to help us next time.

    A man on a bike immediately started helping put up the stakes. He refused the jab after the first injected man at his office ended up in ICU. He wasn’t getting it after that, but saw his colleagues lining up. They were afraid for their jobs.


    “Bike man” had his own story to tell. Picture: Alison Bevege
    Two Texan tourists said nobody dares tread on their freedom, yet when the gene-vaccines came out people just rolled over.

    “I couldn’t undestand it,” said one.

    Phil himself had a chance to meet Loraine, with whom he is unexpectedly connected by his late brother Barry.

    When Adelaide doctor Barry Schultz’s story went into Forest of the Fallen for the first time, his widow Diane went to see the display, which Loraine was setting up.

    Loraine told the volunteers that Barry was a new addition, and that he had delivered about 1500 babies in his career before he took the Pfizer shot which killed him 18 days later.

    Just as Loraine was explaining, Diane came up behind her - “That’s my husband,” she said.

    It was a wonderful moment for both of them. A lovely acknowledgement.

    This is the healing that Australia needs.

    Don’t look away.

    Thanks to Kevin Nguyen, the talented filmmaker who compiled a magnificent video of the Randwick FoTF above.

    CHICKEN SHASHLIK
    INGREDIENTS OF CHICKEN SHASHLIK
    4 Servings-+
    500 gm chicken boneless
    1 medium onion
    2 medium tomato
    1 medium capsicum (green pepper)
    2 tablespoon yoghurt (curd)
    6 cloves garlic
    2 inch ginger
    1 teaspoon black pepper
    1 teaspoon coriander powder
    5 teaspoon pureed tomato
    2 teaspoon powdered red chilli
    4 tablespoon butter
    HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN SHASHLIK
    Step 1 / 2 Marinate The Chicken
    Chop the onion, tomato and capsicum and keep aside. Make a paste of ginger and garlic. Take a bowl, mix together the yogurt, garlic, ginger, black pepper, coriander, chilli powder, salt and tomato puree. Add the boneless chicken pieces and mix well, coating all the pieces in the marinade properly. Add the vegetables. Cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
    Step 2 / 2 Grill The Chicken Skewers
    Thread the chicken onto the skewers, alternating it with chunks of onion, tomato and capsicum. Brush with butter, then grill until chicken is cooked through and is golden brown. You can also pan grill the chicken. In this case, just ensure that you keep the flame low and keep turning the chicken pieces. You may have to alternately cover and uncover the pan and keep adding butter. Then, place the chicken skewers on a heated iron plate for sizzling effect and splash a few drops of water and oil on it. Serve immediately with mint chutney. You can also serve it on a bed of rice or noodles and it would become a complete meal. 🤤

  • Today I visited a new local cuisine restaurant in my neighborhood for lunch with my friends.
    Since we were there for the first time, we didn't know what the specialty was, so we took different dishes.
    I don't know if the names of these dishes can be translated into English and how they will sound, but I will try (with the original name).
    Leskovac shaker (Leskovačka mućkalica),
    Turkey with noodles (Ćuretina sa mlincima),
    Pulled pork (Drpana prasetina????) and Baked smoked ham in horseradish sauce (Zapečena dimljena butkica u sosu od rena).
    The ambience is in an ethnic style and the dishes have a phenomenal taste and are highly recommended
    5⭐

  • The Chinese New Year is a special time to celebrate new beginnings.

    As we enter into the new year, many cultures around the world are celebrating their own unique traditions. This Sunday marks the beginning of Chinese New Year 2023, and this cycle will be under the reign of The Water Rabbit!

    The Chinese New Year is a time for families to come together in celebration. It’s an opportunity to honor ancestors, reflect on past successes and failures, appreciate what you have now and look forward to a bright future ahead. During this 15-day period known as “Spring Festival” or “Lunar New Year” people across China celebrate with parades filled with firecrackers and dragon dancers; feasts featuring dumplings; exchanges of red envelopes containing money; decorations such as paper lanterns hung up everywhere; plus family reunions where stories are shared over dinner tables full of delicious dishes like fish or noodles that represent luckiness in life.

    This particular year is special because it falls under The Water Rabbit's rule — one that promises positive changes for those who embrace them wholeheartedly! People born during this cycle can expect abundance in wealth if they work diligently towards their goals while also staying humble enough not to let success get too big headed about themselves along the way. Additionally there might be some unexpected surprises coming from unlikely sources so keep your eyes open! On top of all these great prospects though it's important remember balance between restorative activities like meditation/yoga/etc...and hard work - both need each other equally well if we want our lives remain healthy & happy throughout 2023 (and beyond!).

    So here's wishing everyone out there prosperity & good fortune during these upcoming days - may they usher us into a wonderful new era full joyousness & peace :)

  • Rafael Gomez > Finally some good news. I hope justice is served like a cup of steeming noodles.

    The Post Millennial.com > "The probe into communications between tech giants and President Biden's aides will look for government pressure that could have resulted in censorship or harassment of conservatives — or squelching of debate on polarizing policies, including the CDC on COVID," Axios reports.

    If government personnel and agencies do not comply, subpoenas are likely to be issued, per a GOP source. The GOP is committed to digging into "the politicization of the FBI," which not only includes the work done to discredit accurate reporting from the New York Post in the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election, but the allegations of Russian election interference in the lead-up to the 2016 election.

    Started the New Years day with a healthy breakfast with local fruits. Then checking the area around at 32°C and got quite thirsty. So enjoyed a huge coconut filled with more than 1 litter coconut water. Rest of the day chilled at the pool until it was time for a Balinese massage. The evening we spent in a jungle like restaurant, having Bangkok Street Noodles with Broccoli and peanuts. Delicious and spicy
