Get rid of all your stuff. Write something you always wanted to write. Paint something you always wanted to paint. Dance with the lights off. Swim in a lake. Find your Minimum.

The Gwion Gwion / Giro Giro (Bradshaw) paintings of the Kimberley.
We know virtually nothing of who painted them starting over 40,000 years ago. At first ornamented and dancing. Joyful. Later, more practical. Later again, severe and warlike. Always bound to nature. We have no idea where these artists came from. How they arrived. Where they went (did they leave)? Their art depicts a historical timeline of a place that transitioned from ease and abundance to scarcity and struggle and is unlike any other in our country.
Since 2009 over 5,000 of the 8,742 known examples of these paintings have been damaged and over 30% completely destroyed by the WA governments ongoing fire land-management interventions, although organisations such as The Rock Art Network continue to strive to stop the destruction.
