The season is now done


Charles................

The cane has been cut. 
Yes, the cane has been cut 
and the mill is now shut. 
The season is now done, 
with no more cane trains to run.

Reading the Lorax last night 
Dante said,
cutting Truffula trees is like cutting cane,
and that the Lorax has gone, 
gone far far away.

Crocodile dreaming


Charles.........

In the middle of the cane fields where the paper bark forests and swamp once were is Green Hill, or  the eye of Crocodile Dreaming, yes there just floating above the surface, the eye of the crocodile, looking and listening, sensing  and observing, quietly while we all float on the surface of our life with our material concerns.

Bush doll


Charles...............

From Maningrida days teaching in Arnhem Land, this is Sylvia Campion's natural fibre 'bush doll' hanging out on the couch in between wall hangs thats still speaking to its purpose.

This doll takes me back to those fun days of scratching around inside Maningrida Arts looking for the dolls, bush toys and the one off random experiments that were made with a direct necessity of purpose but sit waiting and often overlooked by collectors.
