As the night of winter lengthens and the Pleiades drift through the darkness at the heart of Taurus at a time when most can see them, I have been glad to listen to songs of the season and drink in the cheer of our children. I'm sleeping more than I normally do in the summer, and my work is taking more hours of waking time than I'd prefer. What can I do about that? Be grateful that I have a couple of jobs and children to support.
Nevertheless, I was glad to get out to the mountain with Ryan on Sundee, up to the Boulder to traipse and cast both mind and eye from ridge to tree, and listen to some water run down toward the desert.

Kia ora Adam,
For myself, a visit to the mountains, to Nature, always brings me back refreshed and renewed, and more grateful. It makes me a better man. So time away is balanced fairly.
May you and your family revel in each other, and enjoy a beautiful holiday season. Rangimarie - Peace to You.

Kia ora my Friend,
Just popping in to wish you a Happy and Blessed New Year. My thoughts are with you.
I am packing up ready to head into my mountains for 5 days. Always that nervous excitement appears, and the pack feels far too heavy, and my route too far. Yet I know deep inside as soon as I step into the musty forest and breath deep of Her Beauty and begin to climb, all will be well. I will toast to you my mountain friend!
