The title (Below the Star Stretched Sky) is a line from the poem Runga, by
Australian poet Esther Theiler. With a sense of the dark earth below us, and
the illuminating stars above, maybe it is possible to listen to an inner voice
that seems to come not from ourselves, but from a wisdom lying on the
edges of the world.
