We left Sydney two months and nine days ago. We are heading up north and have driven more than 10,000 km. Wet and heat are catching up on us as we have arrived in Cooktown. In the coming days, we will hit the tip of Cape York. What a different Australia from the one I know! Here the luscious greens of the rain forest fall right into a deep blue and crocodile inhabited ocean.
In the bush, I found some delicate black wild orchids. Drift wood is blinding washed white. Seed pods can be as round as our planet. Some leafs, most precious umbrellas, are perfectly circular. The natural environment feed my eyes and my senses with unthinkable marvels. Will the beauty of our planet never cease to impress me?
It gives me ground to belong as an immigrant and as a woman, it shows me the impossibility of our consumption based society, it calms my anxiety... as a thank you for all the goodness I continually receive from our natural environment, I have created an art installation, an offering if you prefer, here at Point Archer.
