A tree, a button, a thought ...

I need time alone these days. So I headed off on a jaunt by myself
to play with my new camera one sun shiney afternoon.
Treasure hunting

Is this what it means to be in hot water?

Time alone but always someone on my heart and in my prayers.

I really do find buttons so many that I filled a small bowl after this walk.

A lone tree washed ashore and partially buried.

My new camera and a touch of Photoshop.

I live in Titahi Bay, Porirua in New Zealand. My kainga. My home. My children will one day bring their kids back here and show them where they were raised. They will say 'This is where mum would bring us for hours, to play on these rocks and along these shores. Man, it is much smaller than I remember."

Making memories. It's what it's all about. Our spiritual connections with a place that make it significant and mean something. My new banner comes from a doctored shot of a tree washed up this weekend. I am enjoying my new 'eyes'. I'm off to have some cake and tea ... want to join me?

I so envy your solitary walk. It's very good for the soul to be able to go off on your own once in a while. Wish I could stop for tea and a chat. We would be chatting so much there would be no time for cake!

I would love to have a cup of coffee and sit and watch the sun set on that wondrous beach. The stones call to me.
