I recently revisited Loftia Park in the Adelaide Hills; I was at school nearby when the 1980 Ash Wednesday fire began. Bushfire has featured in my work before, but always with a focus on regrowth. After seeing that forest still scarred with black, I concentrated on the loss that others experience, the compassion I feel, but also the fear that the black landscape will again surround me.
