A long time since I posted here. In the past I think I was trying to write rather than letting the words emerge.
Sea country – yarluwar ruhe – means a lot to me. Helps locate me in something so much more than the spreading seaside sprawl that is disfiguring this area.
I wouldn’t be who I am without either- the sacred, the sprawl. In some ways, they create chaos and pain, the dialectic between them, as well as serenity and peace.
