5km Tuesday lunchtime run. This is my favourite sculpture that I encounter on my way through Wynyard Quarter. It’s called “Silt Line” and is a set of cast concrete tidal steps by Rachel Shearer & Hillery Taylor Architecture. I love looking at the steps disappear into the water and also the different shapes and heights of the steps themselves.

Research conducted at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, found the presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive way. "What's exciting about this study is that it challenges established scientific beliefs about how people can manage their day-to-day moods in a healthy and natural way," said Jeannette Haviland-Jones, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at Rutgers.   And here I thought they just looked…

Spring, in the land of the long white cloud. There was a smidge of blue sky peeking from behind the clouds so, Alex and I headed to my favourite North Shore Beach, Castor Bay. Though we weren’t as brave as these kids who were in the water, boogie boards and all, we had a great time sitting on our towels, listening to the waves. Kids really don’t care when it comes to getting in the water do they? Rain, hail, shine or even slightly cloudy it seems. ☺

Sitting on the beach ,watching the moonlight talking ,making plans, making promises.

I'm not a very big quote person but, you can't really go past Hemingway to sum things up. #inspiration

I love collecting Zuni fetishes. Bear is the guardian fetish of the West. He represents strength and self-knowledge and is a spiritual guide who also has supernatural powers. Bear is a powerful healing fetish. I don't necessarily believe in this, but I don't necessarily not believe in it either. ;-)

I was out walking the other day when I discovered this photo of people building the Auckland Harbour Bridge's first platform. I so rarely think about how hard those who’ve come before us have worked, to give us the life we now enjoy. It also made me appreciate that someone thought to put the picture there to remind us. It’s so nice when you see that care has been taken when it wasn't completely necessary. Just a couple of the many things to think about when you’re out for a walk in Auckland.

After "Valley of the Dolls" I thought I'd hang around the same subject matter with my next read. I'm sure David Mamet will provide a slightly different view of what happens behind the scenes in Hollywood. But, there's only one way to find out....

Can't wait to get in to this. I love the cover too. I've decided I'm only going to buy hard copies of books with great covers, the rest can go on my Kindle. Like Karl Lagerfeld says, "No more ugly books."

Zuni Fetishes are believed to have inherent powers or qualities that may aid the owner. This lovely Corn Maiden represents strength, creation and wisdom. I hope even a little rubs off on me.
