Today I have a special treat for all my readers... Aunty Delmae Barton is a proud Bidjera woman from Central Queensland, a world famous Opera singer, former lecturer at Griffith University, writer and painter is going to share some of her thoughts on the world. I am very privileged to call Aunt Delmae my friend and I am sure you will enjoy her beautiful, sensitive and gentle philosophies.
Plus my cat absolutely adores her!
Australian Dreamtime Welcome
We the Aboriginal people of Australia
The First Nations people of Australia
We hold out our hands in friendship
We offer to you our hearts, love, hope, freedom and peace to all new Australians
The entire world,
We offer our land to share, to care, to walk the dreaming paths of our ancestral beings
To talk in many tongues, to sing the songs of our song lines, to dance the dance of our people
Our land, our spirit to share the culture of each and everyone,
We are as one in unity of humanity
Sacred waters over sacred sands shall cleanse our bodies, our minds, our spirits, our souls
Being ever free to drift on the sacred waters of life
Carrying thus forth on the spirit winds of time our aspirations, our inspirations, our dreams
To the stars and beyond into eternal bliss.
