Alice, working its power

On
a crisp and beautifully serene late Febuary morning in 1988 a young
couple ventured up a rocky climb on the outskirts of town. While both
were fit, healthy and familiar with the land, theirs was a particular
challenge, given that one was 36 weeks pregnant.

She was my mother on her way to the very top of the MacDonnell
Ranges, on the eastern side of Emily Gap. Knowing that I was not far
away, both she and my father wanted to fasten an image to my birth. That
they certainly did! Within a few hours of reaching the peak my mother
went into labour with your honest author.  MOZZIE BITES reflects on
the ties that bind her to this place, even though for now she is taking
up residence in Melbourne.

Pictured: That's me not long after, getting a
big cuddle from Denis Neil. His family's friendship with my family is
part of what will always keep me connected to Alice.
