It is New Years Eve.  
One of my favourite days.  
The anticipation of the first day of the New Year, 
a fresh start, a clean start.  
Today I get to reminisce about what has been, 
to ponder on experiences I can learn from, 
and to celebrate successes.  
Next year, 2012, 
I am daring to dream bigger than I have ever dreamt before.....
2012, I am so ready for you.....

Happy New Year to you all, I hope you celebrate what has been, 
and dream big for the future...

An Interview for the Wairarapa Times Age

Earlier in the week, I was emailed asking if I would like to be interviewed for the Arts Section of the Wairarapa Times Age.  Quite nervously, I said yes.  It was lovely, chatting to reporter Sarah Hardie over a cup of tea felt like chatting to a friend, it wasn't at all as scary as I had thought.  I am thrilled to have been asked, and thank you to Sarah for writing such a lovely article!  If you are in the Wairarapa, the article is in today's paper (Friday December 9th, and there is a little photo of me on the front of the paper as well!)

First day of summer

Today marks the first day of summer.  
And it was a spectacular day, one of those perfect days when you wake 
and can see the sunshine and blue sky before you even open the curtains.  
I love this time of year - there is a real energy to December, 
with the excitement of the holidays coming, and the promise of all that is summer....
long evenings, running through the sprinkler, barefeet, picnics, 
driving with the windows open and the music up.......summer, hello you.
