I don’t want to push. The biggest growth comes with some space, an invitation, a focus with some surprises and some mermaid flippers. So I just arrived to Broome yesterday. I’m in awe of the red dirt here that’s more than red dirt – it’s magic and dinosaurs and blood songs and spirit all packed down into forevers. The rust against the bright blue sky makes me think I’m on another planet. Underneath it all, I just want to be a mermaid.
I actually didn’t want to be a girl. It has taken me a long time to accept my femininity. I wanted to be a boy when I was younger and called myself Christopher. And although by the age of nine I finally grew my hair out and started wearing skirts, I was still questioning and resistant.
Yoga Wasn't Cool When I Started. Social media and Skype didn’t exist and internet only happened with a modem. AOL was still alive and kicking. It was 7 years before I got my first cell phone.
