The ten to twelvers'

They all arrive at ten to twelve  -  i never see a thing,

I only hear their whispers and those songs they always sing.

I hear their little footsteps in the breezes that they bring,

& unless you really know them ... I wouldn't invite them in,

they can be a bit…

Australia’s Invisible Intersex

                                                

 

"Historically, whenever a culture is on the brink of stepping into a new paradigm, members of that culture react quite predictably. As the old paradigm begins to disintegrate, people attempt to reinvigorate or reinforce the paradigm in order to try and preserve what is known and therefore safe and secure, while resisting the forces of change for fear of facing the unknown” (Noble,…

The indiscriminate

Once born

my breath was up for sale.

Love's expensive and indifference - free.

No matter.

Infinity leaves its pale contrail but I'm the indiscriminate. 

Like a rumble of flight paths and tin canned souls

and the sheet that has lifted and taken its toll.

I'm a cluster of moments with no place to go,

a tireless movement with nothing to show,

dizzy with busy and packed full of…

The rise of neoliberalism: Australia’s beleaguered democracy

Australian political culture and its public policy-making has changed dramatically since the 1980’s, influenced by the gradual adoption of neoliberal ideologies by successive governments. Australian society is experiencing a political and economic shift from a social democratic nation in support of the welfare state; to a free-market based, neoliberal society with a decline in public spending and a rise in privatisation and deregulation. This influence is modifying…

The US-AUSFTA, Convergence and the Australian film and television industry.

 

 

 

The 2004 US-Australia FTA ignited much debate about the anticipated benefits and shortcomings of this historic bilateral agreement and of whether Australia was well placed to take advantage of the opportunities that came with media convergence.  Now over a decade later, the socio-economic outcomes and cultural influences of the AUSFTA can be considered through hindsight.

This review examines literature that discusses the impact of the AUSFTA on…

Merry Christmas and Goodbye 2015

Bye-bye! (great ship horn sounds)

Farewell!... into the slipstream midstream mind.

T'was a brief historical mist, 

a blink or two on the in-breath 

to be marked as datum temporalis

Predictions for the coming century...

Humanity becomes increasingly bored with fear and greed but they still have us by the short and curlies.

Politics becomes even more transparent as a personal vehicle for self-aggrandisement,…

The Metaphysical Dreamtime

“The whole essence of truth cannot be transmitted from mouth to ear. Nor can any pen describe it, not even that of the recording Angel, unless she finds the answer in the sanctuary of her own heart, in the innermost depths of her divine intuitions.” — The Secret Doctrine 1888, 2:516

 

The Dreamtime and Gnosticism are two distinctly unique spiritual traditions that preserve and transmit their spiritual and philosophical knowledge…

They ARE spraying poison in the sky, so who are 'THEY' and what is it for?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jf0khstYDLA

  Wake up and "follow the money"   The air we breath, our atmosphere,  is being tampered with and we don't know who's behind it.  There are no laws up there. Mysterious persons known as 'they' are free to do as 'they' please.  I've received no reply to my reasonable inquiries. Mystery persons are spraying the skies on a GLOBAL scale.  Can we do something? Can we at least find…

Me, Myself and the Great I See!

While sailing the words of so many i's heard, I came to the Great Eye Sea,


"Avast ye!" called I, "Avast ye!"  (then remembering the coxswain is me...)
There's no one but me, no one but me,
"Just me and me"  Says I.  
Yet eyes rarely know what…

I knew a Guy (prose)

Part 1



I knew a guy

who was full of himself but who never got to know the fullness of himself.



 rationalised himself into a hole 

 atrophied his chakras with ignorance.

 death was the end -  in his mind.



His soul grieved,…

A victory for those of us who care for the Kimberleys

I feel encouraged now, in any worthy pursuit, to protect country and support our indigeonous peoples :

Woodside Petroleum stopped in its tracks

This is a testament to those who think that people do not have any power to change anything, or to gain a victory against the huge multinational corporations that would destroy the pristine…

Say Goodbye to The pristine beauty of the Kimberleys?.....Chevron/Woodside has just cut a deal

The big sell out of the Kimberleys   Say good bye to the pristine Kimbereley coast line of Australia. This remote and virtually untouched paradise, should be protected as a world heritage site, instead it's the planned site for a massive gas plant for the American company Woodside/Chevron, always…
