Don studied science before dancing, dance making and other forms of creative exploration took over. He sustains an improvising practice and his body-centred research interests include memory, the metaphors and myths shaping human experience and the connections and relationships between people and all things of the country. He is based at Kiah in the Towamba River valley in south coastal New South Wales, Australia.
This book weaves the threads of everyday life and those moments where one is at one’s insightful and creative best. It explores the capacity for both deep reflection and alert, ‘in the moment’, sensory engagement. It underscores the possibility for becoming aware of and challenging the behavioural patterns developed over time that can focus and sometimes limit our lives.
