Starry Dhala (translates to Starry Night in Yorta Yorta language).
Do you remember talking to your baby when they were inside your womb? Those softly spoken words at night, the assurance that everything will be alright. Do you remember those connections you felt, the kicks and rolls around?
How magical it all is. Although my pregnancies were tough I still remember those feelings, the special connections you have when growing them and their little reminders that they are there.
I created this piece listening to the same music I listened to while birthing my second child. This birth was so healing to me as my first birth was very traumatic. Each contraction I would imagine I was riding a wave that would bring me closer to my daughter.
This image is depicting me softly talking and passing on my hopes to my unborn child under a starry night.
