Around 2010, I read a book about the Aboriginal beliefs of the Dreamtime and the underlying concept of The Speaking Land / Earth. This book spoke to me and was full of the most wonderful art depicting how the Earth and all things on it had a place, importance and inner soul.
I suppose you could call this Animism (from Latin animus, “soul life”) and I still feel that non-human entities, including animals, plants, and often even inanimate objects or phenomena, possess a spiritual essence and have a musical voice.
Strange but true and it is why I feel strongly that we should look after this tiny rock in a huge cosmos, we call Earth.
Track originally released on The Speaking Earth (2011).
