A new dawn for my plant might be the last day for these caterpillars! Hope is a strange creature. We sit in this paradox, some of us like the familiar holey system, something must die for something new to grow in its place. It’s painful. We grieve it. Especially when we don’t personally  have anything against cute little green caterpillars.   #dawn #atapūao

My walk today felt all about light… like I failed to find what I was looking for. But when I thought about it. There’s darkness and shadows in these pictures too. There’s always darkness where there’s light #darkness #põuri

Slowed. Stopped. Redirected… when will we be delivered? Deliver to us. Deliver us from.  #deliver #tuku

This might seem a little silly but… we’ve 3D printed a fairy door for the garden.

Where my goddaughter and I tackled a jungle of weeds, there is now a bed of flowers and a little stack of logs to provide habitat and nectar for bugs, bees and butterflies in the garden.

A fairy door might seem like a childish thing, but I have believed in things I cannot see for as long as I can remember… I hope I always do that. I hope my goddaughter does too

What parts of you feel like they’re dying? Yes. It’s hard, I  know. It is for me too. Now, what parts of you are coming alive? #release #wewete

Looked for the answer today. Didn’t find it. The pav went wrong. The problem wasn’t solved. The result didn’t come. The waiting is oppressive. I go outside and am re-membered. I remember to breathe. Don’t forget to breathe. #answer #whakautu

A treasure hunt of sacred ordinary things. A simple meal. A droop off I don’t have to collect. Strawberries in the rain. It’s the small things. #celebration #whakahari

Lent word: Heard

Lent word: Live

I’m spending some time in the garden for the first time in ages. It requires being present. It requires paying attention. Many things have gone to seed. Some are already sprouting away on their own. This is the cycle of life: the dying and the living. #live #ora
