Some day we will walk together [on Country]

I like looking at the landscape, breathing it in, listening, seeing the beauty, thinking, painting and remembering. It brings me joy and a deep sense of belonging to the natural world. Over the years, whenever I feel sadness caused by the loss of connection with my Aboriginal family or consider the grief experienced by generations of Aboriginal children who have been separated from their families and culture, I find a lot of strength and comfort in believing the Old People will always be there and that someday we will walk together [on Country] and everything will be all right.
