‘I’ve walked this loop for long enough that there are passing strangers I now recognise.’

In this iterative writing and walking project, Clare Britton and Alexandra Crosby have been making space to ask questions of each other about caring for Country, to share conversations about climate change, and to remind themselves of the love that keeps them present. They start with an anecdote, usually shared while walking together on Gadigal/Bidgigal Land along the Cooks River; they live on either side of the river and have been walking together for many years. They take turns both to propose prompts for writing and directions for their walks responding to what they’ve encountered- mangroves, casuarinas, or for this essay, dingoes. Our walks in the catchment have also included following Papaya, Banana and Dragonfruit Trees through Marrickville and rowing and walking the river.
