Staying alone in the north east of Tasmania at Eddystone Lighthouse on a wilderness residency mid 2001 changed my life. The tempo of the outside world gradually became muffled and eventually silenced by the life force and direction of the place of my maternal ancestors. I wasn't sure by the end of my stay that I would be able to leave and reside elsewhere. Even though I have lived, worked and travelled far and wide since then it is with a surety that I am different since my time up in the north east. I have left something of myself there that I will retrace and reclaim one day and something of that place, something that makes me who I am at my core was properly switched on, triggered during my stay. My life outside of the north east now seems borrowed time in borrowed places amidst borrowed stories in borrowed languages that don't live inside me as does the wholeness of being whilst in that big-time corner of Tasmania.
