Sand Textures

“The sand in the hourglass runs from one compartment to the other, marking the passage of moments with something constant and tangible.

If you watch the flowing sand, you might see time itself riding the granules.

Contrary to popular opinion, time is not an old white-haired man, but a laughing child.

And time sings.”

‘So Much More Than This’ is about just getting tangled up in all of the drama and stuff that really does not matter and probably won’t matter in, like, three months.”

“Now more than ever do I realize that I will never be content with a sedentary life, that I will always be haunted by thoughts of a sun-drenched elsewhere.”

Breakaways

About 30kms north of Coober Pedy in South Australia is the Breakaways Conservation Reserve, consisting of colourful low hills which have broken away from the Stuart Range and the stony gibber desert.

As you pass through the Mesas you can go along the dog fence track and return to Coober Pedy by the Oodnadatta Track.

The site is significant for the Antakirinja Matuntjara Yankunytjatjara People, whose name for the area is Umoona, meaning “long life”, referring to a particular species of tree found in the area.
