Gotta love a good drop bear. Like a true-blue Aussie punching darts and popping pingers.

I made 2 new giant vessels yesterday, only to realise that a 1.5m pot won't fit in a kiln. I karate chopped them and attached what came off onto the sides. Bossing like a ninja . . . . . . . . . #ceramicsculpture #pottery #potterybarn #clay #slowclay #australian #handmade #handsoffcountry #ceramic #stilllife #zen #panda #earthconcious #earthy #diy #ninja #design #australia #australianmade
War Zone doctor Jill Seaman is the hero of my life. Treating patients in the bush of South Sudan where she gives high tech support from a mud hut. "Life's a risk, everyone who lives there knows they can be gone the next hour. And yet they live. And they are happy." . . . . . . . . #lifeinspiration #warzone #medicine #doctorswithoutborders #powerwoman #guru #zenmaster #suchislife

Dancing Termite Man. Memoir from a day I drove through flames licking at my heels and a black cloud of crows and eagles swooping at petrified snakes and lizards. I saw this termite mound dancing in the heat waves.
