For me, my country - Australia - is an ancient and mystical land. It is the driest inhabited continent on Earth. There is a lot of Australia to see and I haven't seen all I would like to see. I have not been to Lake Eyre. I have flown over it on flights from Melbourne in the south to Alice Springs in The Centre. I have seen the dry veins which in times of rain carry water to replenish the mighty lake.
For those whose spirituality has a desert quality, I have included two things which stir the traditional Australian heart and spirit: a poem and a video (and associated transcript).
