"And the sign said long haired freaky people need not apply" - Five Man Electrical Band

So I tucked my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why?

The Oak factory must stop destination of past times.
A line from the famous song of the 1960's depicting the use of signs everywhere. Signs can be good or bad and this depends on the message they convey at large and the purpose for which they exist in the first instance. The signs in the song I mentioned above were all about keeping people out and segregating everyone. This song was written in the time of the Vietnam War. People everywhere were questioning everything. I remember this and  I was a little girl. I loved this song very much and it made me think about this stuff at a young age.

I have included an image of the Oak Factory at Hexham was once a bustling stop for people traveling on either of the highways that form an intersection here at Hexham.  The Oak factory milk bar had the reputation of serving the best milk shakes in Australia.  It is not the hub of yesteryear it was.  The traffic lights make this almost impossible as there are cars bumper to bumper along that stretch of road south of Maitland NSW.  Today there is a Hungry Jacks there, I suppose there are plenty of those around.  Not quite the same as stopping at the legenday Oak factory for a milk shake.

The most rewarding things you do in life are often the ones that look like they cannot be done. - Arnold Palmer

Sometimes I look back then and wonder how did I manage to do certain things.  It is like it wasn't me or like I was under the steam of a hidden power or force perhaps.  It felt good to think that I had managed to pull all of this together while under extreme pressure.

 This band photographer is a statement to me to look to the future.  I was impressed with her as she stood there so solemn waiting for that perfect shot.  The equipment looked cumbersome but important.  I often thought I would love to take band photographs as well. 

I love photography and I love music and I love festivals and going to bands and live music in general.  I always have loved the live music.  The Narara Festival at Somersby.   Yes, bring back the Narrara Festival of  1983 with bands like Michael Hutchence, the lead singer of the Australian band INXS, along with INXS, Men at Work,  Cold Chisel, The Angels, The Choirboys, Uncanny X-Men, The Church, Australian Crawl and  Margaret Roadknight and Austentayshus as the MC for the festival.

They were the days of madness and festivals.  The rules were yet to be made for large events of this caliber in this country.  Narara was billed as another Woodstock.

Your soul is your conscience. Your conscience is energy which has no form or location.

This energy is part of the whole universe. The meaning of life is to evolve your conscience to higher consciousness which is the source of all existence.

Tsunami - Grandmother Earth has had a Heart Attack. 
So many of her children and grandchildren are living in suffering, while others live in greed and waste, not helping those in need.  This becomes especially apparent during the holidays, as many the world over spend money on lavish unneeded gifts, while others starve and are homeless.  This tidal wave has come from Grandmother Earth's heart of great compassion.   Her heart has been broken.  Wars, poverty, jealousy, hatred and greed.  So many negative thoughts have broken her heart.   May we all join together in brotherhood as one humanity.   As we all help each other, regardless of race, country or religion, Grandmother Earth's heart will Heal.

Many Prayers are now being said to Grandfather Sky asking him to heal Grandmother Earth, all of her children, and grandchildren.  This is greatly needed. and it is free.  Grandfather Sky also wishes our prayers and kind thoughts to be extended to Grandmother Earth's waters and oceans, which now need extra Love and Kindness.  May all beings be freed from suffering, find liberation and enlightenment.

Blessings in Love and Peace. (Native American Indian)

I don't believe one grows older. I think that what happens early on in life is that at a certain age one stands still and stagnates. - TS Eliott

So I must be frozen in time at around age 20. This is the image summoned in my head according to Eliott's wisdom in his poetic works.
SAM 7721 City and Colour
Groovin The Moo Banner
 I don't think that I will ever really grow up. I will always have a young mind. Part of the reason for this is that I presume I am subconsciously waiting for my mother to come and get me. She has passed from this Earth some fourteen years ago. But, still my body waits for her just as it has done from the beginning when I was a baby of four months old.  
Apparently I just refused to take any nourishment at all and was on the point of starvation and hospitalised due to malnutrition due this blatant emotional standoff.  I wasn't even 12 months old and I was trying to fight for my life in the only ways I had at my disposal.  I fought on my instinctual level because I was a baby.  I was subconsciously waiting for my mother.   I guess the doctors and Edith didn't have any understanding  that a baby has feelings.   My feelings were strong indeed.

I have vivid memories that go back to when I was approximately 9 months of age. This has been fully confirmed.   It was a shock for others to discover that my memories of this  time in my life were so vivid.   I could remember clothing and colours of clothing and where furniture was placed at the time.  I suppose not many people do remember very much before their first birthday. Trust me to have to be saddled with this as well!

I hated the blue restraint they tied me up in and walked me like a dog. It was blue plastic vinyl patent horrid thing .  I hated it!  It was said of me though ; if I didn't have this attached to me they feared greatly for my life. I would surely be dead they told me.   I used to just run. As a two year old I would take off and run  as far as I could run.  I wonder where I was running to?  My mother perhaps?

Funny thing is when life gets too much for me emotionally now, and even in the middle of the night I run.  I have to run and if I don't run I feel I cannot breath and I am being held under.  I run for my life but I don't know why. Is it something inside of me left over  from the trauma of missing my mother?  I am almost sure it is.

The Groovin Banner above  serves to remind me that while ever there is breath I will probably love the things that young people do. Why?  Because I will always be young in my head and I need to be part of something  this age group is part of.  For me to live I need to fit where I fit comfortably  for the myriad of reasons I have said.  This age group may not want me  to fit in either, this could be a problem. So that would render me with  no place and what is new?  I had a huge time at Groovin'.  I wish I could do it all over again.  Festivals are expensive though , petrol and food costs soar these days.

When I look back over my life I sometimes wish things had turned out different. But I really never thought any of these sort of thoughts until I lost my children. Before then I took it all as a learning curve.  Its very different now.  I feel I have lost them due to an inability  in them to understand me. My son for instance calls all of what happened to me in care and later a "FANCIFUL STORY".  This is an unforgivable situation given the circumstances I have been put under and the abuse I suffered just at the hands of the department alone and the sicko's they employed.

I need my son's love so much.   When I needed him the most he abandoned me also. I re-lived all of the pain and fear feelings the original abandonment situation did when I was four months old.  

I have had many times during my life where this situation has replayed.  It is  like someone hit the repeat button. --- "Here is another abandonment for you Mary, you are obviously well qualified to experience this now". Shivers!  I think others would surely die if they had to belly up to what I have to each day on an emotional level when my eyes open and I feel the despair so deep as I do each day when I awake from sleep.

I love my children and I miss them so terribly but I do not own them.   They have their own lives and I hope they are all happy.  That is all a mother can ask for her children.   Sometimes the situation is so surreal it is as if I never gave birth to them. I don't know them anymore.  My body looks like I never gave birth at all. Is this a dream I can wake up from? Oh Lord I wish it were. If I could I would never sleep again..... if I could keep them here in this reality.

"Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go." .T.S. Eliot

Next month's Venus transit is a special event — the last chance for astronomers and amateur skywatchers alike to watch the planet trek across the solar disk. The last Venus transit occurred in 2004, but the next one won't happen until 2117.
Lore: The ancient Greeks first knew Venus as Phosphorus when it was seen as the "morning star" and Hesperus when it was seen as the "evening star." It was the philosopher Pythagoras, in the 6th century B.C., who realized the two were the same. Because of its brilliance, it has been known by all people. In Egypt it was called Bonu, in India, Asphudit. It was the Romans who named it Venus, after their goddess of love and beauty.

0166 Venus Plate

The National Trust of Australia (NSW) has a Transit of Venus Walk on Saturday 26 May 2012, at Woodford in the Blue Mountains.
The Transit of Venus will be clearly seen this year from Woodford. In 1874, Woodford House, owned by Alfred Fairfax, was one of the four sites in NSW selected for astronomers to observe this event.

Tjukurpa panya tjamulu, kamilu, mamalu, ngunytjulu nganana ungu, ku runpangka munu katangka kanyintjaku' - Pitjantjatjara

IMG_9988 Uluru Dreaming 2012, a photo by Images @ Melonpopzdropz on Flickr.

IMG_9988 Uluru Dreaming 2012 by Images @ Melonpopzdropz
Have you ever felt walked all over or used.and not cared about?  I suppose this is how Uluru feels when people who enter the hallowed invisible lines and trespass on into spiritual and sacred spaces.  I don't understand it when people don't heed the warnings.  The curse that seems to befall some who climb the rock is very real.  More so it is real for the ones who secretly take  a piece of Uluru home with them in their luggage.
At the cultural centre located at the rock is a book called simply. "The Sorry Book".  This has been reprinted again now as still letters flow in from everywhere across the world.   Together  with the letter accompanies small pebbles or dirt or a piece of the rock itself in a desperate attempt to return Uluru and to have what ever has been happening to these folk and or their families all back home cease.  At Kata Juta National Park this returns policy is taken very seriously and the parts mailed back to the rock are replaced back to where they came from originally.

The Anangu people have Tjukurpa.  This is a spiritual link that flows through everything.  Every grain of sand has Tjukurpa.  Tjukurpa is everywhere and everything.

'Tjukurpa panya tjamulu, kamilu, mamalu, ngunytjulu nganana ungu, ku runpangka munu katangka kanyintjaku' - Pitjantjatjara
'This Law was given to us by our grandfathers and grandmothers, our fathers and mothers, to hold onto in our heads and in our hearts.'

What is Tjukurpa?

Tjukurpa is the foundation of Anangu life and society. Tjukurpa refers to the creation period when ancestral beings, Tjukaritja, created the world as we know it, and from this the religion, Law and moral systems. 'Dreamtime' or 'Dreaming' is often used to describe the way we and other Indigenous Australians see our origins. This translation suggests the beliefs are unreal. Tjukurpa is no dream, and there is no such word as 'Dreamtime' in Anangu languages.

The creation period

Prior to creation the world was featureless and none of the places existed until our Tjukurpa ancestors, in the form of people, plants and animals, traveled widely across the land. The adventures and battles of the ancestors formed the world as we know it today. Our land is inhabited by dozens of ancestral beings. Their journeys and activities are recorded at sites linked by iwara (paths or tracks) and iwara link places that are sometimes hundreds of kilometres outside the park and beyond Pitjantjatjara country.
The Mala Tjukurpa, for example, involves three groups of mala (rufous hare-wallaby people) who travel from the north to reach Uluru. Two groups then fled south and southeast to sites in South Australia. Kuniya Tjukurpa involves the travels of the woma python from the east. Many other Tjukurpa such as kalaya (emu), liru (poisonous snake), lungkata (blue tongue lizard), luunpa (kingfisher) and tjintirtjintirpa (willie wagtail) travel through the park.


Anangu land is mapped through the events of Tjukurpa and is therefore full of meaning. Tjukurpa is the basis of all Anangu knowledge. Where you are born, where you live and where you die are of great significance to Anangu. When Anangu travel across the land we do so with the knowledge of the ancestral beings. Knowledge of the land, and the behaviour and distribution of plants and animals is based on knowledge of Tjukurpa.  Anangu recount, maintain and pass on this knowledge through ceremony, song, dance and art.

Passing on Tjukurpa

Tjukurpa is not written down, but memorised. It is a cultural obligation to pass on this knowledge to the right people. Ceremonies play an important role in the passing on of knowledge. Specific people or groups in the kinship system have responsibilities to maintain different sections or 'chapters' of Tjukurpa. These chapters may relate to a specific site, or a section of an iwara (ancestral path) and this knowledge is carefully passed on to people who have inherited the right to that knowledge either through their birthplace, or through having earned the right by progressive attendance at ceremonies.
Tjukurpa is taught and remembered through specific verses of inma (songs), site related stories, ritual dances or rock art.

0084 - Nana
Nana doin Inma
The iwara (ancestral paths) are recalled in long sequential lists of sites, sometimes including sites beyond country which have been visited, and including sites belonging to other people. Tjukurpa may also be recorded in physical forms such as ritual objects and some objects are created for a specific ritual and then destroyed, others are very old and passed on from one generation to the next. These objects are extremely important, and knowledge of their form and existence is highly restricted. They are not discussed in front of children and may be specifically restricted to men or women.
Tjukurpa is also recorded in various designs and paintings, such as the 'dot' paintings of the Western Desert Region. Designs are often sacred and their use may be restricted to specific groups or individuals. Some sounds are associated with particular Tjukurpa, for example the sound of the bullroarer is associated with sacred men's ceremonies. It is for this reason that Anangu don't want bullroarer objects sold to tourists. Tjukurpa is extremely important to Anangu and learning deeper levels of knowledge means a deeper level of cultural responsibility. Therefore some Tjukurpa information is restricted to certain authorised individuals.
Law
Tjukurpa establishes the rules we use to govern society and manage the land. It dictates correct procedures for dealing with problems, and penalties for breaking the Law. The proper way of doing things is the way things are done in Tjukurpa. Since the coming of non-Aboriginal people,  some of the penalties under traditional Law  have had to be modified. They have also adapted non-Aboriginal law to help enforce Tjukurpa. Sacred sites are protected under Commonwealth and Northern Territory legislation and hunting and foraging rights are protected under the legislation and lease agreement with Parks Australia. The Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park Plan of Management protects Tjukurpa by using it as a guide for making management and policy decisions.
So now you should have a total working knowledge of what Tjukurpa is. ( pron. CHOOK ER PAH)  The coming of the white man to their country must have shocked the veritable socks from these people who had never seen anyone with skin that colour.  Tjurkurpa is now modified to be able to include the white fellah influence all around and it is wonderful the the Commonwealth has the respect enough for these people to use the Tjukurpa in management decisions affecting the running of the Kata Juta National Park areas in both areas ( Uluru and the Olga's)

Happy Birthday Brice... What an awesome man you are xx

Love is a choice you make from moment to moment. Barbara De Angelis

Brice up the mountain at the Newell Falls
Today is Bricee's Birthday.  Its a day much  like any other accept today he raided the rumballs rum and made himself a birthday drink.  Why not too.. he deserves this pleasure although he didn't look like he was enjoying it at first pulling a few strange faces. Probably because it is so long since he had one.  It is his birthday and I think we are having pizza for dinner this evening.  I am going to make a cake for him and decorate it with Ganache ... a chocolate cream affair that should be delicious.

I bought him a shirt at Uluru but it fits me.  This isn't funny because the shirt I bought me doesn't fit me either.  I am sure they are sized out for midgets as neither of us are large people by any description.  Oh well I will get him something else and besides this he has me all day to his self and we are going to visit some friends later as well to celebrate the day!

“If you can learn from hard knocks, you can also learn from soft touches.” - Carolyn Kenmore

Wonder if Quandongs would grow around here as they are a desert shrub or tree.  But I still would like to try to germinate one for my grandchildren.


The seeds can be turned into a moisturizer and I want to try this practice at home and so I need to get some quandongs to do this.
The seeds are amazing actually and so beautiful to touch and look at.  It takes a long long long time for these to fruit but I would love to grow one for my grandchildren and at least pass on the knowledge to these kids for the future!

My heart bursts through my chest ...Hilltop Hoods

The Sky and the Land and the ROCK..


I have been home a week today and I can tell you that my heart was just about jumping out of my chest seeing this sign.  I was so so happy to have gone to the center of Australia and seen what I have seen.  I feel like I went overseas really.   I would be lost overseas I think.

I went there looking for answers and I got them.  I am now sure of my spiritual ancestors.  I am more than sure because I have been taught to trust my intuition and my own good feelings.  I had many very emotive experiences while I was there.  I met some very beautiful people.  I have many new friends in the world.  I want to go back and hold those Aunty's again.  The two deadly sisters.  So damn fine.  I cried and she cried and our hearts sang as one for a short moment.  

Aunty Allison's nephew said there was a very strong spiritual connection with this Aunty.   He wasn't telling me anything, I felt this.  It was overwhelming at the time when it happened and I was glad to find there was someone watching the entire situation.  Her name was Dorn ( Dawn)  and what a lovely name for a beautiful person.  She hugged me after the Aunty's all left and she said she saw what I felt.  This totally blew me away.  For those minutes it was like I was in a time warp and it was all glistening with gold it was that special and it really felt that way too.

“How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank. Here will we sit, and let the sounds of music Creep in our ears; soft stillness, and the night Become the touches of sweet harmony.”

William Shakesphere

So the date is finally May 20th today.  Today the planets start doing their little thing up there in the sky.  We could well be in for a bumpy ride with this one.  As above so below is something I just keep quoting.  The hologram effect  The sun is doing all sorts of spits and spurts with the electromagnetism as well.  This occurrence  brings on earthquakes here on this lowly little planet of Earth.  Put your seat belts on ladies and gentlemen.


Since its Sunday morning I decided to include an image of Montana in the church I was married in when I got married to change my name because I was living in abject fear.  This church is down at Morpeth NSW.  St James Church of England built by the poor convicts in 1834.  A massive church for beauty and simplicity and its been so well kept.   It looks like it was built yesterday it is in that good of condition.

“People so seldom say I love you And then it's either too late or love goes. So when I tell you I love you, It doesn't mean I know you'll never go, Only that I wish you didn't have to.”

This is a poem by Laurence Craig-Green.

Every sun rise is one less I will see on this earth plane whilst vibrating at this level.  There are many dimensions and these are very quickly now being discovered and scientifically noted as the flat earth scientists so love to do.  The absolute beauty in nature is a hologram and in nature you can see the entire universe as you hold a tiny leaf in your hands or witness the majick and colour of sunrise.


Wow what a week being home has been catching up on everything. Most of all catching up on seeing the beautiful dawn right here at home in my back yard.

“Often when we realize how precious those seconds are, it's too late for them to be captured because the moment has passed. We realize too late.” - Cecelia Ahern

This time last week I had to say good bye to the rock I had waited all of my life to see and today it is back to radio and the normal things.  I won't forget this experience ever as it has moved me so emotionally and I really wish I could just go straight back out there.
IMG_9832 Uluru Dreaming 2012

Seeing this rock up close and real personal was massive.  It smelled so good there and the dirt was such a pretty colour.  It was so pretty you could almost eat it.  It looked so full of iron.  No wonder people eat dirt sometimes.  This looked like pretty good dirt and it felt like it too as we were surround by massive red sand dunes found in this state only here in the entire world.  No where else are there sand dunes like these ones. 

Remember the red dust storm.  That dust came from right here in this area photographed.  Aunty loved my story about Uluru getting impatient for my visit so a bit blew over to me to remind me of my goal!

Chet Faker



My new favourite.. I am totally waiting to see this guy live and to have his album. The EP Thinking in Textures is due out in 2012 and believe me it is eagerly awaited for by lots of us.
This guy Chet Faker is amazing and it has moved me listening to him. It feels like warm honey that is just healing and yummy and moving and awesome.
Who doesn't love "No Diggity?" Maybe those without hearts or souls! Luckily for the rest of us, there's been a development on the 'I like the way you work it' front – a fantastic cover of the Blackstreet-plus-Dre original by Melbourne downtempo electro artist Chet Faker. While most covers nod and pay tribute to a classic, Faker does something more immense and mysterious, completely changing the song's tone towards a sleek, cinematic, sex-in-the-pool sort of vibe. His EP, Thinking In Textures, comes May 22 on Downtown Records._http://rcrdlbl.com/2012/05/01/download_chet_faker_no_diggity_blackstreet_cover_

“For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.” Judy Garland

These trees felt like they had a full on spirit about them.  I could feel their love as I stood and gazed at them and just admired the absolutely beauty.


The desert was a different place to see so much beautiful stuff growing in abundance and right then I understood how these people originally had such an amazing natural supermarket from which to gather their awesome food.  The food I ate and I loved.

I'm going bush tucker looking when I am out and about in Urunga as the people there had a beautiful lifestyle as well and they ate very very well too.

This little bird finally flew home to Urunga

Now to come home and digest where I have been and the fact that I have flown in the air further than I have ever flown before.  A total of 8 hours in the air.  I even flew over South Australia.


I was very wise about the entire flying thing.  I purchased Codral Cold and Flu pills and dosed myself with those to take any swelling out of my ears for the flights and this was very effective on all of the legs of the journey.  The smaller flights played more havoc with my ears than did the longer flight from Sydney to Uluru.

Bush Tucker

Ficus platypoda, commonly known as the desert fig or rock fig, is a fig that is endemic to central and northern Australia. The fruit can be eaten when soft and ripe.
 
Bush Tucker was the way the woman fed their families in times past and still today in this area of Uluru.  Aunty Alison Hunt runs the bush Tucker exhibitions at Yulara at the resort.  We collected these from the rock for Aunty and I was photographed by the Japanese while I was doing this.  I could not help but smile.

The signs of the Spirit Beings may be of spiritual essence, physical remains such as petrosomatoglyphs of body impressions or footprints, amongst natural and elemental simulacrae.

Anangu also has the meaning "human body" and may be used to refer specifically to the physical body, or to a dead body.

 Before the arrival of non-Aboriginal people in Central Australia the core meaning of anangu was probably "human being, person". Now however it is used to mean "Aboriginal human being, person" and is rarely applied to non-Aboriginal people. As a Western Desert Language word for "(Aboriginal) person", and given that other Aboriginal languages have their own words for "(Aboriginal) person" the word anangu has come to be very closely associated with the WDL speaking people who use it to the extent that it is now commonly used to refer to them, mainly by non-Aboriginal people but also by the speakers themselves. Used in this way it seems never to be used to refer to any traditional grouping but rather to any collection of WDL people. It may also be used to refer to other Aboriginal people, especially where the speaker is uncertain who they are.
The correct term for "black person" in Pitjantjatjara is aṉangu maru, literally "dark/black person".

Tjukurpa

What a site to behold is Uluru.  What a majick place to feel and see and smell.  My senses were on over time the entire time and everything was just beautiful
 Tjukurpa (Pitjantjatjara).

The Dreaming is a common term within the animist creation narrative of indigenous Australians for a personal, or group, creation and for what may be understood as the "timeless time" of formative creation and perpetual creating. In addition, the term applies to places and localities on indigenous Australian traditional land (and throughout non-traditional Australia) where the uncreated creation spirits and totemic ancestors, or genii loci, reside. No word in the English dictionary covers the concept; for example, Anangu who speak Pitjantjatjara use the word Tjukurpa and those who speak Yankunytjatjara use Wapar, but neither means dreaming in the English sense
2:3 Normal or de jure version of flag, or obve...The Australian Aboriginal Flag  Wikipedia)
The Dreaming has different meanings for different Aboriginal groups. The Dreaming can be seen as an embodiment of Creation, which gives meaning to everything. It establishes the rules governing relationships between the people, the land and all things for Aboriginal people.

In the Aboriginal world view, every event leaves a record in the land.

Uluru is very special.  It is located on a major planetary grid point much like the Great Pyramid in Egypt.
http://www.crystalinks.com/dreamtime.html
  Everything in the natural world is a result of the actions of the archetypal beings, whose actions created the world. Whilst Europeans consider these cultural ancestors to be mythical, many Aboriginal people believe in their literal existence. The meaning and significance of particular places and creatures is wedded to their origin in the Dreaming, and certain places have a particular potency, which the Aborigines call its dreaming. In this dreaming resides the sacredness of the earth.

"Do not be afraid to go out on a limb ... That's where the fruit is." - Anonymous

These desert oaks all looked like people to me.  Everywhere I looked there were hundreds and they were all different shapes and sizes and stages of development just as we humans are.  The way they stood there so solemn like great spirits.

 

I went for heaps of walks in the very early cold mornings while I was at Uluru and I stood on the hill nearby to watch the sunrise and to gaze into the same sun as at home. It was magnificent at dawn and sunset.

For all you seek is already inside. The ancestral knowledge is within all of you and it is to be found on the path Home. And this is a universal path that All will take.

Today after many hours delay at Coffs Airport with Virgin we finally landed in Sydney to prepare for our flight out to Uluru.  The taxi drivers are cunning and horrid and refuse to take you to close by destinations and only take you if you are a half hour fare so that was a little disconcerting for us all as we arrived in the Big Smoke as its known affectionately as.  We needed to get some dinner for Uncle Tom.  The night was exciting.

My photo
I was in the war zone of life. Photography helps me see the beauty again and from every perspective possible. Writing helps me get whats inside outside. I am aware I am awake and I know I must not get so low that I can't see the beauty in the bricks life throws at me. I used to meditate with the sun each dawn as often as possible for my health. Those days are over now as I have taken the sun and its energy into me and its time to give it back out now to others in healing and Love, when and where and however I can. I seek a freedom from the pain of life. I work hard to stay on top of this daily and taking images of nature is one of the best ways to stay so in touch with the intricacies of what life can manifest if you let it happen.
