Visions of a new kind came to me in my dreams and meditations that only became clear as my life progressed and as world events developed into the new millennium.

About the Author
In my early twenties I left NZ after losing my first child. Determined to be a singer songwriter in Sydney Australia 1986 I became a full member of APRA (Australian Performing Rights Association). In 1987 I returned to NZ and published the first edition of "Visions of a new Kind". The same year I won recording time with NZ Broadcasting House for five of my original songs.
1992 I created and produced "Land Of The Warthogs" in VHS format. It was a spoken word, silent film, stage performance, journey into the underworld.
In 2005 it was accepted and exhibited at Melbourne Fringe Festival as a VHS short film and performance (see chapter illustrations).
When 9/11 events created world "terrorism" I turned to documentary film making with Art Resistance and later produced my own short docos.

The poem "before meeting you" was requested by Dr. Christine Cole for her book Releasing the Past: Mothers stories of their stolen babies. I took refuge at that time in spiritualist meditation circles and wrote poetry in trance state.
Later in my life I returned to performing my original poetry as spoken word in Alice Springs N.T. The indigenous people of Australia say "Alice is the place where the song lines meet". I found my place and finally claimed myself as an artist and a performer in this desert heart.
