Market Day gearing up continues...

What do you think??

Feeling poetic today....

A good friend gave me Penguin modern Poets 10 -  The Mersey Sound... one of my fav poet Adrian Henri... lets recite..


Tonight at noon
Supermarkets will advertise 3p extra on everything
Tonight at noon
Children from happy families will be sent to live in a home
Elephants will tell each other human jokes
America will declare peace on Russia
World War I generals will sell poppies in the streets on
      November 11th
The first daffodils of autumn will appear
When the leaves fall upwards to the trees
Tonight at noon
Pigeons will hunt cats through city backyards
Hitler will tell us to fight on the beaches and on the landing
A tunnel full of water will be built under Liverpool
Pigs will be sighted flying in formation over Woolton
And Nelson will not only get his eye back but his arm as well
White Americans will demonstrate for equal rights
In front of the Black house
And the monster has just created Dr. Frankenstein
Girls in bikinis are moonbathing
Folksongs are being sung by real folk
Art galleries are closed to people over 21
Poets get their poems in the Top 20
There's jobs for everybody and nobody wants them
In back alleys everywhere teenage lovers are kissing in broad daylight
In forgotten graveyards everywhere the dead will quietly bury the living
You will tell me you love me
Tonight at noon


Nearly back to normal..

Today my little boy back to school for the first day, 'breaking another uniform history' New uniform, looking smart in blue instead of grey,the other 3 kids before wore grey  color uniform. Last week is my girl back to school, last year of school.. Uni next year.

What lies ahead of me this year??? I take it one day at the time...I can handle 4 seasons in 1 day!

My South Island trip...Mt. Inspiring

Back to the present

Been away for 10 days to the South Island really do me good, we been to Central Otago, my little boy and I had a good time! I am becoming more certain south Island is for me.  One day at the time but I will get there. After more than 20 years in New Zealand, I definitely notice the difference the way of life down there.

Landscape is breath taking whether it is the winter or summer, I just realized I am traveling in between in between the the great mountains even the next town is only 40 minutes away.

While I am there, I am also looking for the opportunity, and there is few that I have been tossing around when I am ready to make that move. I always know my passion for arts and craft, cooking and baking and chutneys making will come handy to provide me an income and I am down there.

... most of all I love the quiet ambience that will add to my creative thinking...
