An initiated Yolngu man of the Mandhalpuyngu, Dalaithngu never lost his connection to language, song, law and country.

And some of us never lost our connection to him.

Here is something David might have said in his own language

Nyuni balipungur nyinuk garmitj guwang, ngarr ban nyuwarr wandjan bilak ngayil.

Whenever you might be about to come here to this place, I will have been waiting for you beforehand.

Love on the Spectrum star Michael Theo on overcoming shyness, fame and positive podcasting​


Michael Theo grew up thinking he was "inferior to other people and invisible".

The Wollongong-based star of the hit TV show Love on the Spectrum would choose to be alone during school holidays.

He knew he was different to everyone else, but he did not know why until his mother told him he had Asperger's syndrome when he was 13.

"Having Asperger's never really bothered me at all and it's something that I've always been proud of," he said.
"It's actually pretty great and it makes me stand out in a way."

In his early teenage years he became more social and comfortable around people at school.

He said he became "surprisingly popular" because he was likeable.

New podcast to 'bring light and love'​

The aspiring actor has recently launched his own podcast titled Mr A+.

He once told his mother that his ideal "A+" partner looked like him, so she started calling him the name.

"I wanted to make a podcast because I wanted a way to entertain people and bring love and light into people's lives," he said.

"My rules for the podcast are there are several topics that are forbidden — religion, politics, weaponry, drugs, wars, crime, violence, and most importantly it's got a no-COVID-talk policy.

A Story to Touch your Heart

Just look at this guy's eyes, as he looks at Her....

There, is a man in Love.

He is from Timor Island country in the middle of nowhere....officially part of south east asia.

She is an occupational therapist

He had a car accident, which left him unable to feel anything below his belly button

So, she looks after him....right? isn't that simple.

The pair met in 2011, five years after Joel was involved in a serious road accident during Timor's violent civil war, when his family was forced to flee their home in the capital, Dili.

It was the middle of the night and Joel was asleep in the back seat of a car carrying seven passengers, which crashed into a tree.

When he regained consciousness in hospital, hours later, Joel was unable to feel his legs.

"I was in lots of pain. I was just like crying and I just didn't know what happened to me," he says.

Joel was diagnosed with a spinal cord injury that means he's unable to walk and doesn't have any movement or feeling below his belly button.

Did I say this man is in Love ?

Read the story, and don't drip any of those tears on your keyboard.


"After the accident, I just felt like I couldn't do anything anymore," he says.

"But see, everything's happened. I got a job and got married and moved to Australia.

"The important thing is to give [people] opportunity ... when you give opportunity to them, they will show you what they can do."
