Introducing leggings. Step into a world of stunning designs.

Beyond those tracks

The introverts are travelling backwards
On their rails of familiarity
The rat racers are zooming towards
The elusive deadline
The money man rubs his hands
Prints more hardship currency
Children crying for attention
Feebly hold up mirrors
Mother Nature sighs and trembles
Under a cancerous human growth
Still she paints the mornings
In colours of her hope

The mountain in the distant background is called ‘Mother Mountain’ Gulaga, sacred to the Yuin people. You can make out an aboriginal woman lying on her back.(her forehead, nose, chin, breasts, belly) find her in the right half of the mt ridge

    This is almost beyond words, a beautifully expressed quintessence dwelling between art and philosophy. You must live your writings to be able to say so much in so few words.
    Kudos Evita.
