“Sacred Country” , Tharawal Country, the South Coast of New South Wales, sacred to the Aboriginal people of the Tharawal nation, to poet Roland Robinson, and to composer Dindy Vaughan, who was born and raised there.
An area covered with sacred rock carvings, bushland, creeks and streams; a land singing its essence, shouting its freedom, vibrating with energy. Country encircling, embracing, containing; soothing with tenderness. Echoing, reverberating, radiating mystery; mind captive, soul stilled. Creation shines in the Eternal Present.
