OK so this is the last post for Almond Land ...

its taken while for me to admit it - and possibly accept it, but we have left Arnhem Land and are now back in Melbourne ... it was a decision made and one that I am glad we did but i miss yirrkala, arnhem land, my people, my girls and the art, culture, the blue sea, the oysters, the crocodiles, the damper, the driving, the adventure .. the list goes on ..

but another chapter begins ...  another door opens for us .. and we are excited for the future - although I probably won't worry about a blog this time ! But you never know ... depend what happens ...

Thanks for tuning into my little blog, its been an amazing five years and despite its certain challenges one I am so so so glad to have had.

ahhh Gangan, the furthest away homeland from Yirrkala and home to many a great artist and people... one of the first homelands I ever visited and one the loveliest places in the world

with the wonderful Yinimala and Gunybi (who gave us a beautiful 
painting each as a departure gift)
with Malaluba, another great artist. (and my hair, which seems
to have gone a bit crazy after the swim)
