Hillary offers quote to caption this image taken on Tasmania’s Tarkine Coast.
“Everything on Earth is held together by Songlines, everything is subordinate to the Dreaming, which is constant but ever changing.
Every landmark is wedded to a memory of its origins, and yet always being born. Every animal and object resonates with the pulse of an ancient event, while still being dreamed into being. The world as it exists is perfect, though constantly in the process of being formed.
The land is encoded with everything that has ever been, everything that ever will be, in every dimension of reality. To walk the land is to engage in a constant act of affirmation, an endless dance of creation.”
– Wade Davis, on Aboriginal Songlines, in The Wayfinders: Why Ancient Wisdom Matters in the Modern World.
