Incomprehensibly Past

I've mentioned the Gwion Gwion before. The north west of Australia has an incredible collection of rock art. Now there's a new project to record and understand the art of the Kimberley region. It's eerie to think an entire culture can vanish leaving only pictures that puzzle, entrance and remain foreign.

It gives me the shivers to think this is the challenge of nuclear waste storage. When twenty first century civilisation is not even a memory, what symbols will keep people from tampering with our lethal waste?

[I'm guest blogging over at Mojito Literary Society todayish. Talking childhood memories of the Australian bush and so-oo many animals.]
