Retreat and Reprieve


I spent some time in the Southern Highlands this past week, visiting friends. The scenery was achingly beautiful, the grass lush and soft, trees providing arches along most streets, grand hedges providing privacy for cottages and grand houses. I learnt a lot in those three days. I can travel light, and be happy anywhere that... Continue Reading →

Christmas and Stress


I recently lost a young friend, unexpectedly and in the most shocking of ways. It shook everyone to their core, including those whom never had the pleasure of knowing her. There seemed to be a collective sigh as masks fell, revealing the truth behind the smiling Instagram pics and depictions of lives filled to the... Continue Reading →

Depression, Grief, Animals and Butterflies


I saw my bus coming, and stepped aside so an elderly woman could climb down. She paused at the door to compliment the driver on his thoughtfulness and driving ability. A conversation began between two older ladies, both of whom reiterated that he was a safe driver, steering the bus smoothly. He said goodbye to his passengers... Continue Reading →

Put them around your home. The Peace Lily is a great plant, as they are hardy and remove toxins from the room. Take three long, deep breaths; breathe from your stomach. Fill a... Continue Reading →

Rotorua, Sulphur, Mini Golf and Flemish Rabbits!


My daughter and I travelled to Auckland airport from Sydney to attend a wedding in Rotorua. It was our first international flight, so we were excited! We left home at 5am, and got to our lodgings after 8pm. Fortunately, I had prepared my spine -full of arthritis, spondylosis, etc- for this epic adventure, and after... Continue Reading →

Vale, the Birdwatcher


We received an email from a lovely friend, courageously explaining that she had just been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She also mentioned she would be starting treatment at Chris O'Brien's Lifehouse, which may gift her more time. We saw her shortly afterward, and my daughter wrapped her arms around the diminutive Scot. This lady knew that her days were numbered,... Continue Reading →
