A Curation Myth
Before he made the world, the Great Curator whittled
boomerangs and played a game that he'd created called
'Oi come back to me' and had the greatest of fun until
he had thrown all his boomerangs so many times and so
many times they had returned, that he no longer liked to play.
The great creator was bored. Yes. Indeed.
The Great Curator
was so bored, he decided to create a Universe into which
he placed a spinning top he called Earth. He was so pleased.
He filled Earth with grass and trees and elephants and mice
and all the animals you could imagine, even fish which he
dropped into the waters that flooded parts of Earth but
there was something missing so he created children
children with straight hair, curly hair and freckles ... but
there was still something missing so he threw all
the boomerangs he could find and each boomerang
found a place in the face of every animal and every child.
The Great Curator called his boomerangs 'smiles'.
