Apologies for a long absence.
This past two weeks have seen me in full recovery mode. After 18 years of snowboarding, surfing and other sports my knee finally gave in last year and for the past year I have waited patiently to get answers. Turns out I have a pretty horrible case of "runners knee".
The last year has been challenging, I have not been able to move around as I would like to so it has been a practise of sitting still and avoiding pain.
I am now on a slow road to recovery but luckily avoiding operations. Fingers crossed.

I love a good book.
I love a book that grips me from the first pages, a book that is impossible to put down.
I just finished one of those books.
An unbelievable sad story, disturbing and so gripping.
I was sad to finish the last pages.
Any good reads you would recommend?

I am far, far removed from my little work-space in the tropics and inspiration has been hard to come by.
I got sent these precious paua shells from New Zealand and just looking at them got my creative juices flowing again, so I made bracelets out of them.
In the Maori language paua is the name given to the abalone species. The paua is only found in the coastal waters of New Zealand. No two paua shells are the same. It is believed that all abalone (including the paua) strengthens the body as well as the heart. The shell represents the beauty of life and brings intuition, sensitivity and harmony to relationships. According to the Maori's the shell brings good luck, prosperity and peace to the wearer.
I believe that too!

The Zhangye Danxia National Geological Park is located near Zhangye in China's northwestern Gansu province. It is knows for it's colourful rock formations which are smooth, sharp and several hundreds meter tall. They are the result of deposits of sandstone and other minerals that occurred over 24 million years!
Can you imagine having a wander through this colourful landscape?
