More magic along the Australian journey, By SunBôw
On Saturday, Australian time (one day ahead of America), we went for a walkabout around the bush and found Dooligah footprints of a young individual, near the pond. There was also of course, tracks from Roos, Wallabies and Wombats, as they all come daily to the precious water hole that keeps them and their bush alive. The dog Bull and the cat Millie also like to come out for hikes in the bush.
On Sunday, we went to visit other places along the drying river where we saw a small hut-like structure made of small twigs, likely the work of the Junjeri, the small Hairy Humanoids. I went for long walkabouts with Bull and found more footprints, also heard several thumps close by and mumbles in the woods, while feeling observed. I visited as well the tree structures area on this land, observed more closely and took more photos.
On Monday I got to touch my first live wild Australian mammal: an Echidna sitting by the road side. We went to visit sacred sites: the Blue Pool, resembling a womb, which was a women’s site. Men who have tried to swim there often drown or come close to. We found petroglyphs over the pool, one depicting a woman giving birth and another one of a bird. We met lizards sun bathing on the trail. A few miles upstream, we visited the Dooligah caves, appearing as a huge face on the cliff. Kagi Taka Raven has had many sightings there and we could feel the site was watched by the keepers of the law of the land. A modern day Original Elder painted a Dooligah on a cave wall when doing a quest there.
I’ve been learning about the many varieties of birds and the medicines they carry, while my new favorite hobby is now picking feathers in the bush. More stories to come shortly.
