King of Summer
A stately old king of the trees, in the bush, watching over all he sees.
He's solid, stern, and immovable. But you can climb all over him and have fun. He's your favourite Uncle, the one who always makes you feel like you're the most important kid on the block.
He'll withstand fire, and drought, but he can be ravaged by termites, or a lightning strike, or bushfire. Yet not even bushfire can destroy him. He'll come back. Time and time again.
Because you need him to. And he loves to be needed.
