Just off Broadway I’m in a side street by City Hall, the ubiquitous New York crowds somehow missing, the hum of traffic vague and distant.

A lonesome monument sits silent and tucked in the shadow of City Planning offices and a 30-storey Federal skyscraper; that building’s construction leading to the 1991 discovery of the largest North American cemetery of Africans and those of African descent. This is a small corner of a much larger 17th and 18th Century ‘Negros Buriel Ground’, originally 2.6Ha and the resting place of 15,000 men, women and children.

With New York’s voracious... Read More

The things people say right in front of you are sometimes very disturbing, Especially when what is being said is in another language that you don't understand. For years my wife and now 17 y/o daughter have been coming home telling me they just know the Asian women working at the nail salon are talking about them in a negative way. To be honest, I have always just blown it off. It has been my experience that most women always think someone is whispering something about them. I have seen this my whole life with family, friends, spouses, daughters, co-workers, and yes, even with the strippers... Read More

A small green plaque reads `Ancient Playground’, the entrance a pair of black cast-bronze gates set between tall rectangular pillars of polished pink granite; topped by bears on the left – one upright – three deer on the other. The pillars are engraved in gold letters, dedicated to William Church Osborn –

`PRESIDENTTHE CHILDREN’S AID SOCIETY 1901-1945?

A dogwalker crosses 5th Avenue, stopping by the picket fence and juggles three assorted dogs; a beagle, a Jack Russell and an errant Afghan. There’s a smattering of Central Park snow.

I catch the dogwalker’s eye and ask... Read More

Strange figures are painted in broad strokes of red ochre – Wandjina spirit-men – eerie round faces with big pools for eyes. I stand next to Maurice, “a Worara blackfella” and a driver at local mines. I ask him why they have no mouths. His voice is hushed, as he points at the staring spaceman figures. “Ah, you see bro, these spirits, they have much magic; so much power. They have no need for mouths.” He knows these spirits well. “We must be respectful, ‘cause if offended, lightning will strike us dead for sure.”

We’re at the far northwest of Australia amidst 1000km of serrated and sunburnt... Read More

Crucifixion was the standard Roman form of punishment for capital offenses against Rome, and hence was practiced on a large scale in Judea under the Roman occupation. All acts of rebellion against Rome were concluded a capital offense. Josephus reports many such incidents of crucifixion i.e.

Antiochus IV crucified Jews in Jerusalem those who would not relinquish their faith; The most popular crucifixion of Christ was also perform as a method to recoil a potential and developing rebellion, an insurgence which was expected by the Roman politicians to be growing among the devout practicing...

We’d passed by here before – wandering the streets of Trondheim, Norway – past tall and ornate, diamond timber-panelling on grand double gates, always shut; the name in sweeping letters across the arched pediment above : `Thomas Angells Hus'. This time, en-route to Nidaros cathedral, I pay little attention, until my girlfriend stops. Today, it seems an inset central door is open. We brave the stream of darting cyclists to cross the cobblestone road.

From the open door a sumptuous courtyard unfolds; sunlit, lush but apparently deserted. Another bicycle leans against a rendered wall, the... Read More
