On the day I left Wellington I met one of my dear neighbours. The sight of the removal van inspired her to commission a painting of our beloved a South Coast….. she’d been meaning to for years – and now here it is!
We’re in a little boat,
And we’re heading out to see
Beyond the old familiar headlands
To the wild seas out there…
Inquiring into depths below
the deep and lucid blue.
And a longing for the journey home
It’s a good day!
