kate5kiwis: carve diem


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

carve diem

wow J11, that is one beeee-autiful bone carving that you made with GD a month ago...
and i'm not surprised that you never take it off... it's too gorgeous. and what a beee-autifully braided string!!!

while we were waiting for D17 to get his piece of paper yesterday, we walked up and down The Main Street and we saw some pounamu (greenstone) pendants with their meanings attached: the fish hook means *determination, strength, and safe journey especially through water*

it's obvious you have the first two qualities... and i wish you the third. not that you are journeying through water in the foreseeable future. i don't think.

COOL!!!! And soooo NZ.
I want to buy both our boys pounamus for one of their significant birthdays. I taught kids at Kihikihi primary where the little girls had these beautiful heart shaped pounamus....VERY cool.
Oh and D17....driving!?!?! OH MY GOSH that makes me old!!! Like remembering 10 years (or more) ago having this young boy say..."Miss Laura, did you know......(some fascinating science fact)......."
Oh and the glasses.......very swish.
