[QUOTE=zoebird;1098018]I agree. And take some inspiration from the japanese art of [URL="http://jeanninecook.blogspot.co.nz/2012/07/kintsugi-or-art-of-golden-joinery.html"]kintsugi[/URL].
It is said that in the 15th century, a Japanese shogun had an expensive pottery tea vessel sent to china for repair. When it was returned, it had only been held together with staples. Angered, he set out to find another way. By mixing gold dust with resin, the breaks were both repaired and beautiful.
Remember, broken things aren't useless, and needn't stay broken forever. And sometimes, once repaired, are even more beautiful than the original.[/QUOTE]
That really is a great way to look at it :)
Glad to see you are working through all the information Ayla. Look forward to seeing your progress. I'm now well acquainted with the ignore button and hoping it will make the forum a more informative positive place again :)
thanks Bearcat, :)
And where are you from in NZ?
I grew up in the Bay of Plenty, well Papamoa to be exact.
I'm in Auckland these days, enjoying the end of a lovely summer. Also spent some time in the BOP - primary school in Rotorua. South Islander by heart though :D!
Nice to see another kiwi around here anyway :) I am a proud kiwi but now living in Aus. I will always be a kiwi :D
Dahell am I?
I mean another, as in an extra :)
I know you are here too. Did you grow up in Auckland AK?
Born and raised. With the odd venture to the country, of course. Pig hunting is frowned upon in Auckland Central, I hear.
I have family in Auckland, and damn I hope you don't know any of them LOL
I dunno. We could be related.
I kid you not when I say I have family in Australia.
