This gentle giant of a redgum tree stands earnestly in the middle of the campground at Mambray Creek in the southern Flinders Ranges of South Australia. It reaches up cathedral like, open to the sky on a series of broad flat pillars. The size of this giant only readily apparent with a human by its side. This great mentor teaches us that the fountain of youth is but a fleeting moment and that we are old for so much longer than we are young, and importantly, that old is beautiful. This is perhaps an anathema to a youth obsessed modern world.
