This is... what gives me goosebumps

Strong, powerful music gives me goosebumps. If it has heartbreaking lyrics then I'm all the more goosebumpy. For example 'On my own' from Les Miserables - "But I know its only in my mind...' or from Paul Kelly's 'From little things, big things grow' - "If we fall, others are rising". Lots of others that I can't remember... but you get the idea!

I agree with that photo giving me goose3bumps. These last couple of weeks Message Stick has been doing a documentary on the Wave Hill Station and walk out - leading up to this event. It was a good reminder of some of Australia's most significant history.
