You are welcome to come.

  • As we hover over Alice Springs I notice a maze of brown, twisting threads.
  • I bought a sledgehammer to take up some of the concrete path for my stream.
  • This country does that. It empties you of certainties and refills you with questions.

Poetic fragments from the journal of musician and artist, Carol Adams, spanning the closing months of a year in the remote desert town of Alice Springs. Introduced by Dougal Beattie.

Astute observations…. shine through Carol’s diary as she prepares to exhibit her paintings. Her healthy self-doubt is balanced by agile and sure prose that has an inviting, chatty confidentiality. Rod Moss
