In the beginning…

You know that meme going around – 5 things you don’t know about me?  Well something you probably don’t know about me is that I collect "creation stories".  Not so much anymore but there was a time when I had dozens of them in bookmark form, books full of creation stories and creation artwork.  None of my children are at all interested in that, but I occasionally sneak some creation into their lives, just to make them miserable.

You can learn about The Dreaming, Australian Aboriginal Stories.  You can also hear real people telling Australian creation stories, I like Aunty Beryl.  You can check out some Australian Aboriginal rock art, too.

Hopefully your children will enjoy creation stories more than mine do.

  1. I had no idea you had this interest. I’ve read some of these too and my kids don’t care either. 😉 To see the rock art in person, to walk where the legends were created, to touch the designs, is magical.

  2. Kids are weird. You are lucky to have been able to see the rock art in person, don’t forget that.
