Corner View "walk of my dreams"

The three sisters painting
I like it how the Aboriginal's have them "dreamwalk"
and go for a walkabout...living them dreamway with themself 
and being all one with Mother Nature...we can learn a lot...

The Aboriginal dream-time legend has it that three sisters,
'Meehni', 'Wimlah' and Gunnedoo' lived in the Jamison Valley as members of the Katoomba tribe.

These beautiful young ladies had fallen in love with three brothers
from the Nepean tribe, yet tribal law forbade them to marry.
The brothers were not happy to accept this law and so decided
to use force to capture the three sisters causing a major tribal battle.

As the lives of the three sisters were seriously in danger,
 a witchdoctor from the Katoomba tribe took it upon himself
to turn the three sisters into stone to protect them from any harm.
While he had intended to reverse the spell when the battle was over,
 the witchdoctor himself was killed.
 As only he could reverse the spell to return the ladies
 to their former beauty, the sisters remain in their magnificent rock formation
 as a reminder of this battle for generations to come.
The three sisters as rock formation
My dream is to go to Austrelia one day and walk and explore
this amazing looking country with them rich culture!
For now I walk my dream in the Netherlands!

ps...at my facebook you can see my "walk" of dreams in a train!

  2. oh, there is one comment! this time i'd copied it, so here it is (third attempt):

    just lost my comment ...
    anyway, I pointed out on my wall (as seen on the image i posted today though in the shade somewhat), a painting by an aboriginal artist - hubby brought it back years ago from australia. i've always loved the expression and the concept of going walkabout :)

  6. Lovely Susie - I love the Aboriginal concept of the walkabout - they were such an amazing culture - totally at one with the land. I often imagine how it must have felt to live like that. I hope you get to do your 'dream walk' in Australia one day - and while you're there you should pop over and visit New Zealand too - it's only a short plane-ride away - Karyn (Eliza's Dream)

    And you are so right - we can learn so much from the Aborigines way of life.

  11. Ha Susanna, dankje! Ja dat is ook zo hoor, wat danken betreft, zeker als iemand echt belangrijk voor je is of is geweest. En als dichter kun je er ook iets leuks mee doen, toch ?

    Ik ben altijd blij als je langskomt, sowieso natuurlijk, en bovendien heb ik dan een link in de buurt, dat gemak heb ik blijkbaar toch nodig! Ooit krijg ik weer een vriendenrijtje zodat ik sneller rondsurf. Dus, veel moois weer gezien bij je, prachtig maar tragisch dat verhaal van de drie zussen! Dat kan ik me dus voorstellen, dat je die plek eens zou willen zien. Nog een mooie plek ook :)

    Ik moest ook wel lachen om het tevoorschijn halen van het geërfde serviesgoed. Zo is het bij mij ook gegaan, heb nu in ieder geval een oude schaal in gebruik. Prachtig is ie.

    Een goed begin van de week, straks! (morgen)

    Liefs en twents roosje, Clemens. ☼
