"Dreaming with eyes open..." CBCA 14th National Conference, 2022
"People think dreams aren’t real just because they aren’t made of matter, of particles. Dreams are real. But they are made of viewpoints, of images, of memories and puns and lost hopes.”
The Dreamtime is the period in which life was created according to Aboriginal culture. Dreaming is the word used to explain how life came to be; it is the stories and beliefs behind creation.
The Dreaming also commands the rules and ways of being in Aboriginal culture.
