Te Whenua

I've decided not to blog about my prior points just yet, they need more cogitation.

I have, however, just spent the most fantastic weekend in Kaikoura ever. I'm sure Shannon will post heaps of photos, cos man she took a few.

We went up to see Dave Dobbyn. I hardly even want to blog about it because words don't do it justice, but I shall none the less. If you check my poetry ever you will see some poetry filter through about it I am sure.

The concert was fantastic - he takes you on such a journey. His voice is so different, so untamed and so passionate. His lyrics are straight from heaven, I am sure. Suffice to say Dave Dobbyn is my all time favorite.

The landscape. Mountains and mist. Sea and waves and .....sand and sky....seals....waterfalls...art deco houses and falling down baches...birds and shells and a starfish...wind in hair and songs in mouth...the land was poetry such as I will never write...the sunsets just for us...

outrageous design.

I am green with envy... Dave Dobbyn AND Kaikoura, what a fabulous mix that is!

Plus all you kids together, what fun! We've missed something Lynne and that's for sure!

I missed out on Dave, his Eltham gig sold out too quick. Reading what he said on his blog, I would have so loved to have been there. Count yourself a blessed soul :)
