Kia ora (psst, non-New Zealand folk: 'Kia ora'' literally means "be well/healthy" in Maori, or ''hi! Welcome! How do you do?'' ) from Blenheim, New Zealand!
How have you BEEN? Reeling at the realisation that we're halfway through May? Me TOO. (I mean, heavens! Before you know it, we'll all be discussing Christmas presents and New Years' resolutions again! The MADNESS!)
I don't know about you, but 2013 has been one heck of a (rough) rollercoaster ride of a year for this muppet. Oh silly, naive (eternally optimistic?!) Corrine - why did you ever expect that moving to an itty-bitty town for a gentleman you hardly knew was going to be bump-free?
HOWEVER! Every day is a fresh opportunity. A new, interesting challenge. A lesson-laden gift. In the words of Thich Nhat Hanh, ''waking up this morning, I smile. Twenty-four brand new hours are before me, and I vow to live fully in each moment...''
Beauty at its best. Crystal-clear turquoise water in Picton, New Zealand.
Enormous hills, gorgeous rivers and peace and quiet (do YOU spy a soul in this photograph? Nope!). Welcome to Blenheim!
Life will rarely let us rest before it hurls a few twists and tricky turns again, but honestly, would we want it to?! What would we natter to our girlfriends/partner/cat about? What would we LEARN? Happiest of all happy Monday's to you. It may not be a perfect one, but guaranteed, each moment of it is contributing towards your beautiful, whimsical, fabulous journey.
