Inside Australia

Just after dawn

The sculptures glow

in the early sun.

We walk

tracing lines

from figure to figure

in the waterless lake

 

Lake Ballard, a salt lake in Western Australia’s Goldfields, is home to 51 metal figures sculpted by Antony Gormley. He’s perhaps most famous for The Angel of the North, a steel sculpture 20 metres high with a 54 metre wingspan, located in Gateshead in the North East of England.

Wondering and Wandering

I don’t think I’ll ever lose my wanderlust. It ebbs and flows like the tides on my doorstep here in Western Australia. Sometimes the pull to stay ‘home’ is strong: when the beach beckons, and the outdoor lifestyle is easy, with good food, wines and friendships.

Then there are times when the lure of new shores overwhelms, the draw of old haunts tempt, and the need to leave this remote city to return to the familiar people and places of my formative years is stronger than the urge to stay.
