So you may already have a vague inkling that the dreams you hold in your hands are fertile seeds.
That they are the kernels of your heart’s desires.
But it's worth having a think about what it takes to turn those seeds into actual flowers, real vegetables...
There’s a tidal estuary near our home. It is beautiful.
There are little jetties and at high tide they jut out over crystal clear deeps (I know, but deeps just reads better).
In summer, there’s much delight and wild whooping as people run along the wooden boards...
Your day, your week, your month – they’re already full.
In fact, life is bursting at the seams.
You already need another day in your week just to fit it all in.
But you’ve started to realise that next time you raise your head to gasp for breath...
As part of the general start-of-summer-fandangle that goes on here in New Zealand, my kids’ school runs ‘The Gala’.
It’s an epic event.
The Gala raises more than $30,000 each year.
Local families diligently declutter their homes, gather their cast offs and bring them to the school.
