happy new year ’08

happy new year to all the pearls on my strand…

just back to welly and work after my first holiday season in nz and it was great.

after christmas we travelled north, as north as you can go on this land, where the sun was shining, flowers blooming, and the sea sparkling.

i really enjoyed this part of country connected to the sea and chock-a-block with the short but meaningful history of this youthful country:

p.s. back in [s]wellington and the wind is roaring and mid-summer i am wearing three layers.
