Jill says 'I follow his footsteps, and everyday he walks alongside me in the Dreamtime. In his Thesis he wrote “I first acknowledge the motivation to write, is the obligation I have to all my beautiful children. There are twelve living and some in the spiritual world and to them I dedicate this thesis with the expectation that their lives overall will be richer than mine", this is something I try to carry on in my own work. I richer for I am Aboriginal and have a culture that is both tangible and intangible in both worlds. The best journey we can have is the journey of our self within culture.'
