Memory Crosses Over – Australia meeting Finland meeting Australia etc
We move all over the world but carry places with us, jagged thoughts, snippets of images, imprints of memories of the past emerge unbidden.
In Finland in February I had never thought about Australia so much, the sense of being on the far side of the world from the place that I call “home” brought a deep longing for my country, the raw landscape and the wide distances, which echoed in the raw and cold landscape of Finland.
Perhaps that is why I felt such a connection with Finland? Maybe there is a common echo, of empty landscape and quiet roads and the sense of empty empty empty.
