We join our heroine (that would be me) in Sydney, Australia, having just left her island nation and the capital city where she lived on the largest island a la Sud Pacifica ... Papua New Guinea ... Never fear. Knowing Ricebag, her ability to draw hectic all over the straight lines means it's never going to be a flat or an easy ride. But it does belong to her - all the fuck-ups; all the heartbreaks; all the beauty; all the kindnesses; all the things shared; all the bits of her given away in gladness; all the things meant that can't be unspelt ... all that stuff, all the stuff done and kicked into motion and ground into being and dreamt into film or flushed into smoke ... ricebag is doing it all because she is the engineer of her year.
