“ I’m sitting by a river and it’s sunrise. Looking down from atop a bridge running over the river I see a flock of birds, as I approach they fly away. Feeling defeated in this rejection I find a place in the centre of the bridge. In the river I see a platypus, it’s swimming and diving down looking for food. It looks upon me and floating I see the gleam in the eye of the platypus. I can see the creature looking at me. Inviting me to swim.

My dream is for this country to listen, learn and understand itself. For us. For our children and for the future… ”.
