Some little bits polished of pieces that were small off cuts of mistletoe or things I literally nearly fell over on the ground. Still not sure what some are or what I will do with them. Hoping to make myself a large (like me) necklace!! But like holding them in my hand too. Like little gemstone. ❤️ #australiannativemistletoe #redcedar #banksiaroot #termiteredrivergum #riverwood #australiannativeplants #australiannativetimber

Daily ground radio, finding a place to listen to the way of things. The interference is real, takes a bit to get past the big scary noise. I disconnect and disassociate, paralyse in sensory overwhelm, shake inside. So I go listen to leaves, feel the density of the air, watch the bees, the clouds, the light and shadows, listening to the crickets and the wind touching everywhere, wondering where the mountain begins. Asking each hand how they’d like to move, and eventually I begin to move with things again. Thankful to have these things bring me back here - often after many attempts. Hope you’re all doing ok. 💚🌿✨🌧 #sensorimotordrawing #symbiocene #bacterialintelligence #landscapepatterns #weathersystems #biome #microclimate #soma #theshapeofthings #dualhandeddrawing #drawing #listening #makingaspaceforyourself #sensoryintelligence #cptsd #conversiondisorder #sensorysoothing #stimming #groundradio #graphitedrawing

We all need each other. 
I visited this site, unexpectedly again yesterday, things are greener, the older trees are regaining strength. The Bunyas, feel to me like mammals, they have such deep connections with people, sacred to all bordering First Nations communities here, including Kabi Kabi/Gubbi Gubbi, Jinibara and Wakka Wakka, they have been in relationship with humans for as long as is known. So much we could learn.

For lovely Bird song, sound on 🎼 ‘We the ecosystem’. Here after a fire devastated much of the area in late 2019. This small verge of forest in between state park and forestry operations, clambers to regenerate itself. The land around here is visibly traumatised: fire, misuse, machinery, lack of education of Country, defunct and brutal colonial land management systems. This little plot holds part of what would have been rainforest and has remnant Bunya, Silky oaks, quandongs etc. After the fires, the older trees left in these minute spaces dropped many seeds, waiting for the rain and for the creeks to flow again.  If in our ‘renewable’ forestry management we could just leave some old trees, to hold the ground, to leave a lineage, to hold the wisdom of the history of weather, disease, knowledge and patterns of the area, it would make a large difference to the resilience of the forest community. This is now science, but known by indigenous communities for aeons. If you’ve held a 400 year old tree compared to holding a 40 year old tree there is a slowness and depth of feeling that is hard to explain. I wish we would acknowledge the sensory information  that is all around us, the sensory information in our bodies, and the larger being we live with, this Country, this ecosystem, and our place in it. We are a convergence of life. We are not separate. #convergence #australianfires #wearetheecosystem #wearenature #forestry #oldtrees #landcare #ourlungs #ourfuture #ourpast #life #weallneedeachother thanks @rossannels for holding this 🖤

I forget sometimes that this ancient body of awe is always hiding behind trees in my yard. I walked to the end of the street this morning to see the clouds pass. 220million years old, once facing Antarctica as a part of Gondwanaland. Kabi Kabi Country 💚🌿✨

A little remnant logged the hell out of many times. Where rainforest was cleared, complete eucalypt forests return. You move from tree ferns to flooded gums as you cross an invisible bureaucratic logging line. Maybe often, like now, the devastating visual impacts of logging were hid behind stands of visually appeasing forest. Driving behind the thin veil of the national park there is massive devastation from industry. We came across what @rossannels recognised as an old logging ramp, with flat compacted soil above. Even surrounded by the areas that are now protected, we could see once there had been an absolute overwhelming obsessive uncontrolled frenzy of extraction. This little creek with regrowth, was a hopeful place, but maybe just a distraction from what is happening everywhere behind these fragments.  These hopeful places get smaller, and no one seems to be checking if industry is being held accountable.

I need you more than ever….2021 (montage, sensorimotor drawing, weather systems,  Country) Pop culture's focus on longing and love as an expression of the tragedy of our relationship with ourselves and our environment. Connection to Country is ignored in colonial/capitalist systems, as way of negating its value on one hand while stealing it with the other. This disconnection furthers everyone within the system from agency, power, and belonging.  These Love songs to Country are a collation of embodied marks, ephemeral weather systems, and places I visit on Kabi Kabi, Jinibara and Wakka Wakka Country which remind me of our unbreakable embrace. They are an emotional and popularist plea to re-pair ourselves with our environment.
