Photo of the day: I took this photo a few years ago of Shaughan fishing at South Beach. It was a beautiful night and can't wait for the fish to come back so we can spend more nights down there enjoying nature.
Last night I got to watch an amazing programme on the Maori Channel about a NZ Author - Jacquie Sturme. For those of you lucky enough to watch it will understand the spunkiness of this lady. When people talked about her they all said they couldn't stop looking at her beauty and I have to agree, how lucky are they to have had her working in the Wellington Library.
The programme was about her life as a writer, being a woman, Maori, her strong intuition, struggle and being the wife of James.K.Baxter. It must have been hard to see all the doors for her career right in front of her but having to wait to find the key to open them.
My favourite part was at the end when she talked about the reason why she writes. It wasn't for the publishes, the money, the audience it was because she is passionate about it. I can fully understand her as this is why I paint, because I love it and it feels right in my heart. Jacquie may you have all the success in the world!
While looking on the web about Jacquie I found his cool NZ book Between the Lives Partners in Art

I love writing and started at a young age. I can remember one day in the library at high school I was bored and wrote my friend a story and being up the top of the library, I thought I would make it into a dart and air post it to her. Well as you can imagine the worse thing happened our teacher walked in and the dart hit her on the head. I got in lots of trouble and Mum was called down to the school.
Last year I started writing a book and wrote the first chapter which I put in a safe place and now I can't find it, I'm sure I will find it when the time is right. It is about a lady going on a holiday and it is full of unexpected things that happen to her. When she gets back home her life has changed and has taken an exciting journey full of passion and fun.
Yesterday was hard work I spent most of the time packing the gallery up. I'd say this time next week it should be in perfect condition to lease out. I have a guy coming to see if he can sell the rest of the gear that I don't need. I'm going to gift all the rest of the stuff he doesn't take to the op shop. It's good to have a big clean out and get rid of all the extra stuff. We live in such a stuffy enviroment.
My message for the day was: There are no neutral thoughts, nor moments in the day when your thoughts do not create thought forms and their effect causing effects.
