Love in Nimbin

Nimbin, Bundjalung Country May 2018. The 45th Anniversary celebrations of the Aquarius Festival are currently happening in Nimbin and it has been one year since I arrived.

What has happened and what next? Over the past year I have written and published three books. The flea and the dinosaur is a children’s book that I wrote and illustrated with an engaging anti-bullying message. Then there is my new release two book poetry anthology from 2017 Love and Lust in Nimbin which started as one book and ended up as two books. “Love in Nimbin” and “Lust in Nimbin” These books are currently only available by direct mail of from fantAsian eatery Nimbin. However I am currently working on EPUB ebook copies and a large hardback format version of “The flea and the dinosaur.”

There is also a sticker and t-shirt range I am working on, a portraits of Nimbin art show that I am working toward later in the year, my 2018 poetry anthology “Peace and Protest in Nimbin” and my second children’s book called ” The Yowie who went to Booberowie” which is about a Yowie who takes all the good Aquarian ideals about Nimbin and takes them to a sad half dead town. (Sorry Booberowie, but you really need a makeover)

Art, writing, drawing and so much to do in Nimbin to keep ones mind occupied and great people too. That is why myself and some other people are looking to create an open hub of wellness and learning.

Twenty years ago I had dreams to build a collective learning centre for sustainability, land repair, and personal wellness. Nimbin has one of the highest proportion of tertiary educated people in Australia as well as being close to Brisbane, Gold Coast and Byron. That is why I believe Nimbin area would be appropriate for a Zeitgeist/Venus Project style learning hub.

Next step. Look for land and creative funding as well as benefactors.

Flea and the Dinosaur, Love and Lust in Nimbin

Bit tyrannasaurMay 2018 Nimbin, Bundjalung Country

It has been one year since Atlantis stopped after 2017 Nimbin Mardi Grass. I was feeling a little frustrated that not much had been happening and little progress made, however………..

After one year in Nimbin I have written and illustrated a children’s book, “The Flea and the Dinosaur” and written two poetry books. The poetry books are part of a two book series called “Love and Lust in Nimbin” Part 1 “Love in Nimbin” is about good things and part 2 “Lust in Nimbin” is a political book  about good things too.

The good thing is I am making progress while staying in the same place. I now have products which I can sell to fund “Blue House Free School” and the running of Atlantis……

Here is a little sample ……….Love and Lust in Nimbin

It could have been apples and appease

Or sleeping on a doorstep

or smelling of blue cheese

Love and lust in Nimbin.

It could be “living in a human zoo”

Or Angry Fascist Bully Boys

Or Rainbow Hippie Spew

Love and Lust in Nimbin

It could have been Aquarius and Peace

Or OD on a Saturday morning

Communes, Cannabis and Trees

Love and Lust in Nimbin

Our eternal dreamtime too

And songs for our corroborees

For our Widjabal ancestors too

Love and Lust in Nimbin

It’s what came to my mind

I’m living in the country

I’m eating peaches all the time

Love and Lust in Nimbin

Take a peek inside

You’ll love this little book

You’ll buy it, you’ll decide
