SPC not SPT



I love walking. This is a shot of me walking the old 'hood. Of course I prefer walking more in nature, on the coast, through the bush, out where there are very few people around and there aren't any cars or smog or buildings - but sometimes when I find myself walking the very streets where my Mum and her siblings grew up, where my grandparents would have been talking with the neighbours or doing their shopping or going to work - basically walking their songlines, I feel very connected to all the people who came before me. Surry Hills is a bit grungy still these days, and at night there are dark corners I don't really like to walk alone, but on the occasions where I need to, I just tune into the energy on the streets and try to feel my lineage and then I feel at ease and like I'm protected and everything is OK.

Love the photo! May I ask-- who took it?

You can always tell a lot about the person who is in the photo, by who took it as well. :-)
