|My man, hard at work (centre of photo facing you)|
Lala and I have been staying with friends on the gorgeous Coromandel Peninsula. I had to leave my digital camera at home, but I have an 'old school' SLR and I will share this stunning part of the world with you soon.

I've been numb this past week - writing and creating have been sporadic and hard to concentrate on. There are still so many unknowns for us, but I do know that I miss my husband, still at home working with Civil Defence; and I miss my city as broken as she is right now. I have prayed for guidance and it is clear to me that it is people that make Christchurch awesome, people like me, strong and able and in the prime of my life; willing to fight, willing to rebuild, willing to heal. I can tell you I am so anxious to return to aftershocks my stomach is in knots as I write this but I feel I must return.
Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of overcoming it.
