Homai to Aroha


To soothe the anger and hormone angst of the last couple days …

A Fantail.


He’s beautiful.

He was flitting around under our eeves and outside our bedroom window and he’s just what i needed.

They don’t give a shit about who said what or what they didn’t say or who they said it too … they just do their birdie thing and look all majestic and shit.

So just like this little fella … I’ll mind mine and continuing being all majestic and shit ;)

Carry On xo

unfuck. #yourwelcome

Another trip to my beach – Yah Me <3

Theres a hundred and one things to love down there … harder to concentrate on just 1 thing though. So typically Me-Styles:

I’m trying to marvel at the wonders that are the super-sized seagull, and get a decent photograph of him … but every time I get a little closer, he waddles out a little further. He’s looking at Me like … ‘dude … you know this is My backyard ay … not yours …’. And it occurs to Me how intrusive I am being … ultimately, How intrusive We are on our surroundings which were / are technically somebody / something elses surroundings first.

Wow … thought Me … is this what it feels like to be the coloniser! Lol … Not cool!

So I stopped creeping up on this glorious bird, and left him to it, and I ended up with this shot. Which actually was pretty cool … In the background is Kapiti Island, and compared to birdie here, looks very small indeed.

Which is also what I felt like LOL … small and intrusive and slightly ignorant.

Lesson learnt: Blend … don’t take Over.

unfucking the mind.

Today I spotted this little fuzz ball sparrow, and he stayed still long enough for Me to take a decent photograph of of him :)

Update: What I forgot to say was … This little fellow is what ‘we’ all call a ‘common’ bird … slightly pesky … nothing particular unique about him. EVEN THOUGH: he flies – just like the other birds; he forages – just like the other birds; he makes those birdy noises – just like the other birds. However, he’s noted to be Common? I see nothing Common about him <3
