Eroaded

Erosion of the Foreshore Road at Colac Bay, attributed to climate change, means the road is closed once you get past the houses. The Southland District Council stopped maintaining that stretch of road. Some residents are angry about the Council response to the erosion problem. We visited Colac Bay on 09 January and I was...

Have A Heart

This lovely photo grabbed my attention on Twitter yesterday. I retweeted it and then thought I'd like to share it on my blog. The photographer (Norfolk, UK) was very kind and also sent me another version. Below is the original phone image I saw on Twitter followed by a more recent camera photo. Click on...

Truth and Freedom

This reflection by Bishop Jake Owensby (Western Louisiana) was published at his blog 15 January, titled: The Truth that Sets Us Free and I'm reposting in full for my Sunday post, with Jake's permission. It helps me glimpse a positive way forward despite the deeply disturbing events in DC and tensions in the US. Jake's... Continue Reading →

Time For Tea

In Dunedin this morning we exited the public library to find rain had set in so we quickly made our way to Nova Cafe in the Octagon. This is a great place to get a decent pot of tea. New Zealand. Tea for me is serious business ... Nigel was chief-of-the-teapot but he had camera... Continue Reading →

#AustraliaBurns

I'm finding it increasingly difficult to comprehend what's going on in Australia. I've read so much recently via twitter i.e. tweets and the articles they point to. Various photos and video clips. My eyes feel tired. In a way none of it makes sense to me. Australia is such a big and well-resourced country and... Continue Reading →

Ostriches

We visited Invercargill today and before leaving for home went to First In Windsor for refreshments. They'd done a great job in decorating the cafe/restaurant for Christmas and we found it cheerful and welcoming. What really caught my attention though was a picture on the wall. Love this! Three separate photos taken by Nigel, edited... Continue Reading →

Heart Vision

Heart Vision. ©2019 Louise Gallagher. In my heart vision I tear away the veil
that blinds me to nothing
but my fear of falling
into the dark stagnant abyss
where love will never find me

Directions

About Wind: a few years ago we were living in an isolated valley on the south coast of South Otago where westerly gales regularly roared down our valley. One particular winter night Nigel was away and I was home alone. I guess there'd been a barrage of wind all day but I don't recall it... Continue Reading →

The Bright Side of Blue

I can't help but be fascinated by the colour blue. Since childhood I've liked blue in its various forms especially turquoise, cobalt blue and navy blue. I'm intrigued how blue can be perceived as negative or sad (feeling blue) yet many people profess that blue is their favourite colour and genuinely like it. When I... Continue Reading →

R U OK? Blue Tree Project

"Every so often I will see something that reminds me I am alive and worth keeping that way. Recently it is this… I pass this tree every week when I drive into the city. My kids ask me about it. What it means. Why did someone paint it? Although they are 4 and 5 years... Continue Reading →
