Trip: New Zealand

There are [11] stories from my trip: New Zealand


Back home

NEW ZEALAND | Monday, 14 Aug 2017 | Views [344]

The trip from Memphis to Houston was uneventful and really not that interesting. It was great to spend a couple of days with my sister and husband and also got to visit with one of my oldest brothers and some of his whanau. After arriving back in ... Read more >


Knowledge

NEW ZEALAND | Wednesday, 28 Jun 2017 | Views [355]

Knowledge or our understanding of the rules of the universe is expanding faster and faster because the base of our knowledge continues to grow. So, like Cantons ideas on infinity, the gaps between the lines create questions to be answered in themselves.... Read more >


World Without End

NEW ZEALAND | Saturday, 24 Jun 2017 | Views [440]

By Ken Follett, a good read, second book of his I've read. Talk about a corrupt society. Sadly it is a constant in our world. I had thought New Zealand to be less affected than other countries I have travelled in but I have come to realise that it is ... Read more >


Thoughts on a bus

NEW ZEALAND | Saturday, 20 May 2017 | Views [320]

 We see everything in terms of light and shade. If all colour were removed we would still see the scene because each item in the scene is a differing shade of grey. Think about that - each item! Each leaf on each tree of a forest, each blade of ... Read more >


Labeled

NEW ZEALAND | Friday, 19 May 2017 | Views [407]

Apparently I'm 'WHITE', it's not a thing I have noticed myself much but lately it is hitting me often in the face especially on social media. I haven't noticed colour really in relation to people, friends and family, but I'm being asked to more and more.... Read more >


May B for Birthday

NEW ZEALAND | Wednesday, 17 May 2017 | Views [355]

I had a wonderful birthday this year. It was a lovely day and I couldn't think of anything more enjoyable than using my bike as it will get cold and gloomy soon enough. I rode to Maori class, the class was fun and interesting, my brain is not the best ... Read more >


Spinal fusion

NEW ZEALAND | Saturday, 29 Apr 2017 | Views [352]

Not for me but for my daughter-in-law. Apparently it is a common, do it every day, operation now but it sounds seriously scarey to me! The operation was yesterday on the back of the neck and they go in through the front of the throat, do they use a cut ... Read more >


My paradiem

NEW ZEALAND | Thursday, 2 Mar 2017 | Views [220]

I've had a shift in it, my paradiem that is. I thought I had a solid Grandmother to Grandchild relationship going on, an unbreakable direct link that went straight from my heart to theirs. It was a link I could feel. A link that kept me from being away ... Read more >


Summer! Summer? Summer.....

NEW ZEALAND | Tuesday, 28 Feb 2017 | Views [269]

Spring looked promising, summer looked like it was going to be a doozy however it's been very much an on again off again affair to say the least. I suppose in it's favour we haven't had to light the fire or anything drastic like that but it's been a ... Read more >


becoming knight

NEW ZEALAND | Sunday, 11 Dec 2016 | Views [391]

There are times that one or other of my children treat me like a dunce or a muppet or just like I am an annoyance that they just have to deal with. It is hurtful and disrespectful and if it weren't for my grandchildren I would quietly withdraw myself ... Read more >


Shock, sadness, anger, disbelief, grief

NEW ZEALAND | Thursday, 8 Dec 2016 | Views [353]

I have just returned from attending the funeral of a friend. It is Thursday 8th December 2016. She took her own life on Sunday 4th December. On Saturday she was here with us, walking, talking, partying, today she is dead. This has affected me more ... Read more >
