Red earth

I cannot get this PJ Harvey song out of my head.

To me, White Chalk talks about the everlasting impact your origins have on your life. No matter how hard you try, you will always end up where you first started. Culture and family wise.

I just adore the metaphor of the mountains to explore the idea of ancestral influence. Coming from a mountainous region, I can feel daily the power this topography has on us.

And I know these hills will rot my bones.
