Baiame,the creator Spirit Emu,left the

earth after its creation to reside as a

dark shape in the Milky Way.The emu

is inextricably linked with the wide

grasslands of Australia, the landscape

managed by Aboriginals.The fate of

the emu, people and grain are locked in

step because for Aboriginal people the

economy and the spirit are inseparable.

Eauropeans stare at the stars but

Aboriginal people see the spaces in

between where the Spirit Emu resides

        Bushfire season is scary. We had an unusually wet – but not flooding – summer, so no fires. Enjoying it while we can. Hope your fire season is manageable.

      Hi Sheila, thanks for that lovely comment.
      I have much respect for our Aboriginal peoples.
      My brother and I are undertaking some interesting research into some Aboriginal ancient constructions at the moment.
      Their history goes back many thousands of years.
      Wishing you a beautiful weekend my friend.
      Kindest regards

    Thank you Aussie Emu for sharing this beautiful video. There are so many pictures to enjoy together with the didgeridoo playing. I am always impressed by aboriginal art and culture. I am glad so much is being done these days to keep it alive.
