The Back River Methodist Cemetery appears to have an outhouse (an outside toilet). I thought the outhouse, the grave and the Southern Tasmanian bushland on the steep hills behind were like a ballet of European settlement. We came, we repeated the cycle of eating and shitting… and we passed away back into the ground. That’s the thing people miss when indigenous Australian’s say their people have an almost timeless connection to this ground. Their people lived, died and returned to this earth for tens of thousands of years. Ashes to ashes; dust to dust. Whether we burn our dead or bury them, we become the dust. Time moves forward.
