A description of the experience
Bruce Chatwin – Songlines
Aboriginals could not believe the country existed until they could see and sing it – just as in the Dreamtime, the country had not existed until the Ancestors sang it.
‘So the land’ I said ‘must first exist as a concept in the mind? Then it must be sung? Only then can it be said to exist?’
