no no,  it's boil water with burning wood

 

"burning" or using only the amount of energy required with the task at hand.

We got a whole lot of 'spooky'   'mythology'  /  'fairy tales about them and other  native plants in a rather wonderful home grown 'pantheism'  in May Gibbs

I forgot to add , the reason I find this interesting ;

 

6a0154338f0718970c0162fdde8d69970d-pi&ke

 

is that in my 'Greater Area'   a 'base myth' is about battle between giant goanna (lizard) and snake .

 

nearby a  high waterfall bears some scars from the battle , in an area where  two 'regional areas '  (two separate  inland watershed's nearly meet )  / tribes meet  .
