Total eclipse of the moon. The shadow of the earth first touched the moon with red at about 10.00pm. Slowly the magic light filled the moon from the bottom, turning it into a three-dimensional ball of rock hanging in the night sky. As the light faded, the starts shone, and the sky came alive. Alive like a giant 3-D spider web bedecked with dew jewels, scattered beyond what the human eye can see. The forces of push and pull that keep it all together, keep it all apart, are vibrating with energy. As the moon ball kisses the earth’s shadow, I feel the cosmic tide pulling on my body. The weight of the universe sits on my eyeballs, and I feel lighter than moonbeams.

As a practicing artist I have travelled far and wide across Australia, walked on country, camped on country and rolled out my swag. I thank the custodians and I acknowledge the traditional owners of country throughout Australia and their continuing connection to land, culture and community. I pay my respect to Elders past and present.
