Alison Nankivell, Suffolk Park

I must say Byron Bay, that I’m heartbroken.

Oh, for all your pride on being creative, unique, self expressive, individual and progressive, to see my favourite beautiful sculpture torn down and fed to the dirt, shattered me.

Where is your support for individual creative expression? For alternative tastes? You see something you don’t like, bully it into pieces, complain to the people above, and like the shattered spine that was the silver lighthouse – you hide behind your opinions and drama.

Go create something and stop destroying things. Hippy-crites.
