I created this to celebrate the result of a postal plebiscite in Australia on marriage for all – and not just confined to a man and woman as has been the case until now.
The results today were 61% in favour of the plebiscite against just under 40% against. There are huge celebrations in Australia at the result and with the knowledge that legislation will soon be introduced into Parliament to legalise love and marriage for all.
I may not know my original face
but I know how to smile.
I may not know the recipe for the diameter
of a circle but I know how to cut a slice
for a friend. I may not be Mary or the Buddha
but I can be kind. I may not be a diamond
cutter but I still long for rays of light
that reach the heart.
I may not be standing on the hill of skulls
but I know love when I see it.

(Breaking the Drought)
May the sacred song of the stars
Imbued with the millennia of dancing with Divinity
Softly sink into the presence of your being.
May starsong radiating within you illuminate
the encrypted title deed to your country:
Your soul songlines tracking from the stars
as pathways to your precious path on earth,
in this unique incarnation of yours.
(This is an excerpt from my forthcoming book: “The Crazy Crone – Living a Wild and Adventurous life”)
I created this from an image I had of rocks on the Jurassic Coast of the UK, plus an image super-imposed of a photo I took of a spider when I was living in Woodenbong, on the rim of an ancient volcanic caldera.high up in the Border Ranges of northern New South Wales, Australia.
The spider was weaving its web against the window at night and the flash of my camera caught a very good image of it at work. With the stones colourised behind it, this image reinforces for me the image of Spider as weaving the web of the universe.
