Belinda speaks with me about where this new book of hers came from: a little about her background and why this has been an idea she has carried for many of the years of her time living in Australia. The long COVID-19 lockdown in Melbourne in 2020 was the incentive for Belinda to write one thousand words per day. And she did it. It’s a fascinating book fueled by author curiosity, a captivating account of life in country and city in Australia, interrogating the quote from George Seddon that provides the book’s title: “The enduring form of possession is imaginative possession, which is fed by knowledge, understanding, associations, stories and images, affections and finally incorporations of the environment into the self, until it becomes part of our sense of personal identity”.
