Me - the homeless man on the street

And you thought the earthquake was a big deal, try having a head transplant!

Forget abundance, enough is enough!

Seabirds, light and water on an incredibly beautiful Wellington summer evening.

What a relief to release the old idea of over-the-top abundance! I can't explain how much that's niggled at me over the years.

Pardon my paradigms, I’ve no clue what I should be paid!

Infinity in a boat, on the stream of Time

On Christmas eve the view from Brandon's Trig walk revealed a 'new land mass' on the horizon.

Maddy is taking a break and we're writing this month, so here's our story of 2012. For us it's been a year of growth and challenge, like white water rafting. Rough and wild, and hugely rewarding.
