ANCIENT COSMOLOGICAL SYMBOLISM
IN THE INITIAL CANBERRA PLAN

The design for Canberra, as developed from the initial plan of 1912, by Marion and Walter Griffin, cannot be understood without recognizing that the Land Axis connecting Mount Ainslie with the War Memorial, Anzac Parade, the lake system, the Parliamentary Triangle and Capital Hill, extends to… Continue reading

Visiting the Olga’s (Kata Tjuta) and life here

Started off my day having breakfast and chatting with a guy from Israel. He was expressing how expensive Australia is. That doesn’t surprise me, I told him many Australian’s would agree, we have duopolies in food retail (Woolworths and Coles) and they keep the prices at parity and high. There has been an inquiry into… Continue reading

Uluru’s Re-Creation

I went to Uluru today (Ayers Rock) and cried as I felt its sacred heart. I spoke to a man at the camping ground, he was disappointed, he prefered colonial history as he grew up with the swagmen. I smiled at what is sacred to each of us and respected the difference. I felt pulled… Continue reading

It hasn’t been designated a sacred site, so it is still on private land. It was very spectacular. Some information courtesy of Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Conner.

Mount Conner, also known as… Continue reading

Indigenous Australia: Sacred In-Sights

I can connect with the feeling of sacred sites as I have been brought to my knees through connection with the energy. Since my world trip I have become more sensitive to the energy which did surprise me. Today was no exception, I went to Simpson’s Gap near Alice springs and I started crying as… Continue reading

The Ochre Track of My Dreaming

I visited the Simpson’s Gap which is 5 minutes from where I am staying. It was unbelievably inspiring. I cried as I took in this monolithic vision. I have travelled the world but never seen sights like this. I felt to write a poem to try and find the words, as I was speechless on… Continue reading
