As part of the partnership with First Coat Toowoomba, local artists were selected to respond to a number of walls in Williamson Lane, Caloundra.

Artist Claire Matthews, aka Fuzeillear, responded with this reflective and enigmatic work.

'To be drifting, above everything. Looking back at our tiny ball of dust and mud, unable to see the busyness, the hustle, the stress. Instead there is stillness, quiet, perspective. To shed the constant chatter of the world and to remember what it feels like to be calm and hopeful. And to share that with a stranger, perhaps someone who might normally make us wary but in this space, this far from home we recognise our similarities, our shared existence and there is comfort, and peace.'
