This is a potent form for all who have experienced the suppressing forces of colonisation, as it enables a means of countering oppression through answering back, to those colonising forces, and in one's own voice.
Never has this been more needed than now, in the history of humankind. As we enter the digital labyrinth where we have allowed machines, computers, to dictate and determine how we communicate, and how we present ourselves to others in the world.
Right now I am ready to throw this Mac out the window as it is so hard to work with. It's so easy - too easy- to chat on Facebook, and write emails (which can be hacked as has happened to me several times). It's also good for writing blog posts.
But as a writer trying to use it to organise projects, and files, it is a nightmare. I am returning to the form of the art journal to write my narrative of finding my family and their finding me through the mysterious channels that are not the prerogative of cyber space but which exist beyond this. In our very DNA and in the telepathic energies that exist in another wider dimension than machines.
From now on, I will record the journey of this writing, as well as making observations from time to time, on the wider cultural and social - and "unconscious" landscapes in which I work.
