Quote for Monday, May 4, 2015

“Each ancestor, as it traveled the country, left a trail of words and musical notes along his footprints, and these ‘dreaming tracks’ lay over the land as ‘ways’ of communication between tribes….A song was both map and direction finder. If you knew the song, you could always find your way across country.”

Bruce Chatwin, The Songlines
