‘Ain’t Too Proud To Beg…


It’s a chance to remind folk that donations are needed for the Swandro dig this year - for the Ness dig this year - and for the post-excavation work after the Ness has been covered over.  I'm passing the begging bowl round again!

While I'm here, there’s The Cairns too….



From ‘Emergence’ Magazine….

"Deep Time Diligence

An Interview with Tyson Yunkaporta

“The only way to store data long term, like proper long term, is in … intergenerational narratives that can last for forty, fifty, sixty thousand years.”

“What would it mean to operate from a place of deep time diligence? To feel our obligation to the beings around us and future generations? In this conversation, Tyson Yunkaporta, an Aboriginal scholar and author who belongs to the Apalech Clan in far north Queensland, speaks with executive editor Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee about deep-time thinking and how it can radically reshape our relationship to the cosmic order. With candor and humor, Tyson pokes at the many ways Western civilization has cut us off from knowledge held in union with the living world. Opening us to long-term thinking, in which Lore, technology, and story are cared for intergenerationally, Tyson urges us to consider how we might begin to sow the seeds of cautionary tales that will carry us into an uncertain future.“




There comes an age

And a state of health

At which a person tends to think

‘That’ll see me out’.


There’s a reluctance

To buy new things -

There doesn’t seem

To be much point.


Things around you

Begin to fade

Curtains faded by the sun

Carpet holes covered by rugs.


It’s homely though -

This muting of life.
