this dust wire wynd was once a word

What does that mean?

A line from a poem, Swag Me, about time spent outside of Alice Springs Australia, dust, the wire that lines open spaces, the wynd – a narrow way, once water-way, the dry riverbed in the Top End, the way it etches a shiftable groove in the land, was once a word because in some cultures the land tells stories. or is a story.

PLACE MATTERS –

the beautiful work of Judith Parrot @ Saltmarket today- shared poetry in reponse to her exhibit…

grounded is an exhibition which juxtaposes images and photographs from the both Scotland and Australia – working within the Gaelic and Indigenous cultures. How important our connection to place. To both protecting our planet and knowing who we are. How language and landscape are inter-woven.
