This has been a journey where we have connected with many community groups and cross pollinated our knowledge and passions by sharing stories, experiences and insights about how Australia can become more peaceable, sustainable and nuclear free.
A big thankyou to everyone who was involved in FootPrints for Peace. Thankyou to the local and regional organisers, thanks to the people who walked with us (more than 250 people), thanks to the people who organised accommodation, thanks to the chefs and cooks, thanks to the people who promoted and organised a community event, thanks to the media, thanks to the people who took an interest in our walk, thanks to the people who tooted their horns as we walked.
This journey has been a challenge not just physically, but spiritually and emotionally. Walking on the land and seeing the different terrain, feeling the different energies of the land and connecting with the land certainly is a powerful experience. I have had the opportunity to develop a deeper understanding about the aboriginal culture, a better sense of myself as well as others. I have certainly felt the highs and lows of this adventure but am totally heartened by the simple joys of this beautiful country and the people that have been attracted to this walk.
As I return home, I am uncertain of what I am going to do next. I know that I want to continue being involved in connecting people, talk about things that are important to me and do my best to make this world a better place.
