Transition

This large bare 1320m section is a block or two up the street from us in Tapanui. I know nothing about its destiny or why the simple house that used to be there is gone. We walked past a few days ago on a beautiful sunny day (cloudy, grey and overcast since). I was drawn... Continue Reading →

All About Love

In yesterday's post I shared my impressions of Musselburgh and mentioned more shops to come. This block, same side as the dentist, is a mixed bunch. Imperial Barber Shop offering "traditional cuts", Simply Flowers florist shop, and the fish shop on the corner. The flower shop took centre-stage so let's take a look inside. Musselburgh,...

"The oversized fruit and vegetables represent how much food waste there is in the average household. The amount that goes to landfill and becomes methane gas when it could be composted or be chicken feed etc." -- The above quote is an excerpt from an Oct 2015 account of how members of Art Fibre Dunedin...
