This photo was taken by John Englezos. An image Heather had set up specifically to use to paint this story. An aboriginal Aunty Elder was pouring water into the hands of a younger aboriginal aunty who was pouring it into a white fellas hand.
Incredible significance in the story of our aboriginal brothers and sisters leading us to water, even though we were foreiners in their land, they welcomed us in and gave us life! Forever Thankful, but very aware this cost you greatlly.
We have much wisdom to learn from your grace and friendship.
