"For Aboriginal peoples, country is much more than a place. Rock, tree, river, hill, animal, human – all were formed of the same substance by the Ancestors who continue to live in land, water, sky. Country is filled with relations speaking language and following Law, no matter whether the shape of that relation is human, rock, crow, wattle. Country is loved, needed, and cared for, and country loves, needs, and cares for her peoples in turn. Country is family, culture, identity. Country is self." *36

"Writing in landscapes, landscapes write in you. Sending a voice to the Juarez Baja, the Sangre de Cristos of Colorado, the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, the Himalayas; sending a voice to Death Valley, Ojai Valley, and the hills and valleys of France's Dordogne; sending a voice to the changeable waters of the Virgin Islands and the cold, radiant waters of Tibet's Lake Manasaraovar; sending a voice to Mexico's wet lowland forests and Canada's dark stands of cedar; sending a voice to Abiquiu and the Chama, to Yaxchilan and the Usumacinta. Sending a voice. Yes, it is true; each place has its own voice. Sending a voice, a voice responds."

Cultures echoing many voices, many accents of the present and the past congregated, broke apart, congregated again under Sorrow Hill. Not only human accents and voices but the speech of ghosts within the whisper of rain and river, fire, light, shadow in the leaves of a tree borne by the hand of Timehri, the hand of God, upon an invisible branch, a visible branch of the tapestry of the age of wood, the age of rock and water and skyscape and riverscape.' Wilson Harris
