No matter what your spiritual condition is, no matter where you find yourself in the universe, your choice is always the same: to expand your awareness or contract it.

I am a friend of Mapuru and am helping to raise funds for a Cultural exchange trip to Melbourne, Australia from Mapuru, Northern Territory, so the women from Mapuru can run a weaving workshop in Melbourne.
It is a long way to travel and while the trip is partially funded, we need help to cover the travel expenses of the adult women. please visit the website and consider making a donation.
every bit helps!

one more round of black… with the beautiful pandanus strips, from Mapuru, Arnhem Land, in the background.
I started weaving this pandanus coil basket in Katherine, NT. The weather is warmer here in Melbourne, Victoria now. So, this afternoon I sat weaving under the jacaranda tree and rambling rose bush in my front yard. It felt so good to be weaving outside! rather than sitting on my couch in the lounge room. I have added the pandanus I bought at Mapuru to my Katherine pandanus basket. I like that the two are combined now in the one basket. more photos to come as the basket progresses. I’m not sure yet what the shape or size will be.
Once you ‘decide’ that you are going to do something, it has already happened. It may take time for you to notice the change, but by deciding, you’ve allowed the pieces to start coming together.
I’ve decided to go Mapuru, Arnhem Land again, next year.
interested to see how it happens!
