Perhaps when I pass into the next world
they will find the thread that connected me to you,
that pulled me in all the right directions 
& weaved its way into my soul.
You are a part of me friend.


if words hold vibrations let my name be thick on your tongue
so that when it finally emerges from your mouth
the friction is such that it causes
your foundations to crumble &
civilisations to emerge.

Your body loves you

What is more beautiful than a freckle, 
that was born under the harshest conditions, 
to remind you that there is so much in you worth saving?

In recent times there has been a lot of debate surrounding John Green’s representation of women and whether it is positive or negative. As his target audience is generally young adults and teens, the way he portrays women is incredibly important as it creates a mould for how young girls may believe they are perceived by others.

You show up in Parnawarratji and try to arrange the single loop of sealed road, the vacant red dirt lots and the dotted housing with massive metal cages on the front, into a ‘community’ in your mind. It isn’t what you were expecting, but then, you didn’t know what to expect. Certainly not so much sky, arcing over the horizon, the line blurred by a hazy fringe of spinifex grass.
