This is what #myman can do!
His hands are tough enough to build a #house , #hunt , #fish , make #fire and soft enough to hold me, touch me, and to make sure I feel #loved ..he started to put lotion on his hands for them to smoothly run through my hair, that he grew to love, he #provides with his amazing work ethic and is an amazing attentive #father to our son #Masonmaaan
Words can't describe how #happy I truly am, he surprised me with a surprise birthday party just a couple days ago, with all my best friends (only a few missing) and as I watched him snore away that night, I couldn't help but be thankful for him in my life.
I am watching him mature into this amazing Man! I just thought I'd share what #Love can do to a person. ~ a seed needs water in order to watch it bloom into a beautiful flower, the water is love to a person what it can be to a flower. #iloveyou
I have Never seen such a Unique, Stunning Rendition of
Rosemary Petyarre’s “Bush Leaves”
Please find all details @ http://artlandish.com/rpbl9c
The bush yam is renowned for its medicinal properties. It is a special plant that is used to aid in the healing process. The leaves are collected and then boiled to extract the resin from the leaves. After this the resin is mixed with kangaroo fat collected from the kangaroo’s stomach. This creates a paste that can be stored for up to six months in bush conditions.
This medicine is used to heal cuts, wounds, bites, rashes and as an insect repellent. By painting the bush yam leaves Rosemary is paying homage to the spirit of the medicine plant in the hope that it will regenerate, enabling the people to use its healing powers. #artlandish#aboriginal#art

“As a gay Aboriginal man myself, the idea of a competition where Indigenous drag is celebrated and put front and centre was thrilling," Wills tells @cbcarts. "The reason being is that drag is like my religion to me, and a drag show is like going to church — it's a spiritual experience."

Glad to see my new #video#art work #SmashIt#edited by @jacoov and me up on #VDrome http://www.vdrome.org introduced by #GabrielaMonroy & #CasparStracke#archive#collage#video#montage
SMASH IT disrupts #dominant#narratives with both, #humour and #serious questioning. There is a lot of smashing going on—the problematics within the protocols for #Aboriginal#culture , the destroying or defacing of #monuments as #history ’s most prominent markers and finally the appropriation and transformation of the Australian melodrama Jedda (1955) by Charles Chauvel. The latter was not only the very first Australian film in colour but—appropriately—also one of the very first starring Aboriginal peoples in lead roles in a story with an Aboriginal non-assimilationist message.
