After the tragedy in New Zealand this week, I wanted to post a photo with a Kiwi-theme. This is a little doll my younger sister gave me once upon a time and it sits on my windowsill and reminds me of home.

It’s been a tough week –  I’ve been struggling to stay focused at work (even though I have a massive list of things to do before I go away) and I’m trying hard to ignore the constant twitter/facebook updates that are suddenly meaningless. Horrible events are happening all over the world all the time and when those things aren’t happening in your country it’s easier for them to slip to the back of your mind. When it is your home country that’s experiencing one of the worst natural disasters in it’s history it really puts things into perspective.

Aroha nui to everyone at home, my thoughts & prayers are with you constantly.
