The Diver

My last post left the Little Girl Giant on a mission to find the Diver.

This is The Diver’s story:

The Diver was sent to find survivors from the battle. As he could no see a living soul on the sea bead he decided to stay there. Miraculously and without knowing it he started walking and removed his tubes and the air that filled his lungs. He found boats lying in the sand and removed the bodies of the dead and buried them in the seabed. Over time his body grew thicker ad denser without him realising and one day he was able to over turn one of the ships. It was a story of a Giant who became big at the bottom of the sea.

After a brief journey The Little Girl Giant arrived at the big city and placed her head underwater. She blew bubbles which echoed at the bottom of the ocean. The air bubbles reached The Diver. When they exploded around him they gave signals similar to morse code. Each message ended with the word “come”. The Diver was surrounded by a tornado of fishes. They circled him faster and faster so that the swirl of the force became a gust of wind. On the surface, the agitated fog started to cough so hard that a storm swallowed the bottom of the water, throwing the Diver into the sky and all the way to the clouds. He fell down unconsciously in Perth.

This was the arrival of the Diver who also went in search of the Little Girl Giant.

The Little Girl Giant and The Diver missed each other by a few minutes. The Diver artfully negotiated the footbridge by Perth’s train station before setting off in search of the Little Girl Giant.

You will be happy to know that, after much searching, the two Giants were united with a beautiful sunset backdrop and cheers of delight from the crowds!

The morale of the story….I felt it was that if you want something bad enough, if you feel like there is an empty space inside of you, you have the choice to make the changes and go searching for what you feel is missing. If it’s meant to be found, you will find it!

Stories have become big news in the past few years. Everyone wants to tell the world their story. Each persons story is important to them, it is unique to them and they have lived it which makes it incredibly personal because their is an emotional attachment to it.

This weekend in Perth The Giants have arrived. These huge puppets are commemorating the centenary of Anzac and are absolutely awesome!

The Giants tell a story over 3 days, with the huge puppets walking through the streets in Perth on a mission to find each other. The story the Giants tell is about a Little Girl Giant who lives with one of the Aboriginal Communities. The community has a mysterious boat that had come up out of the sand. Only a part of the boat could be seen. When one of the communities children finds an old book and hands it to the Little Girl Giant it awakens a feeling of home and re-joining her family.

The book told the story of a little girl in a lighthouse full of love and sorrow, who watched the soldiers leaving Australia on ships carrying hope into the lost battles. It was 1915 on the beaches of Gallipoli where the sand, reddened by the blood of men, frighten the moon.

The Little Girl Giant gets up and decides to go in search of the diver whom she saw when she was reading the book. She has a shower and gets dressed.

She boards the boat which the community has spent 10 days digging out of the ground and sets off on her travels.

Will she find the Diver? Where is the Diver? I will post the rest of the story soon!
