I really don’t know how to start this post. It is Chinese New Year this week, so I thought I would make something Chinese.
I am in no way Chinese- not even the tiniest bit- and I know very little about China. If there was a handbook called ‘China in Generalisations’ (giant pandas, communism, lots of people, a profound belief in luck etc etc)… That book would encapsulate my knowledge of China.February 10, 2016
“…at first blush Australia connotes something non-human. Of course the genius of indigenous culture is unquestionable, but even this is overshadowed by the scale and insistence of the land that inspired it. Geography trumps all. It’s logic underpins everything. And after centuries of European settlement it persists, for no post-invasion achievement, no city nor soaring monument can compete with the grandeur of the land.”
