Comment on ‘My future is in my hands’: winning work by Phil Walcott.

What a sensational statement Marlene chose to title her award-winning contribution.
“My future is in my hands” sums up the reality for all of us … if it’s meant to be, it’s up to me (thanks Naomi).
We are each responsible for the choices we make regarding our behaviour. Good choices generally lead to good consequences.
Accepting responsibility for our actions is how can each demonstrate our independence and sovereignty over our individual lives.
If we then choose to partner with other like-minded people to create a collective of positive energy, much can be achieved in a “whole-of-community” generation.
Remember, the UNITY in commUNITY is what strengthens us all.
Thanks for reinforcing the message so beautifully, Marlene Rubuntja.

Leaving town: Centre, its creatures will miss Kaye Kessing
Such a tremendous thread in the rich fabric of our social tapestry.
Kaye has given so much with regard to her generous contributions to many of Alice’s people and organisations.
Her sensational talent with creating visual masterpieces is inter-generational.
Her bilby book trilogy is simply sensational and her many works that adorn various canvases around town are a remarkable testament to her creativity and passion for Central Australia.
Wishing you and Eleanor a most wonderful future together, Kaye, continuing to create physical and emotional artworks in the name of our first love … humanity. Journey well.
