A room without a roof.

I saw the outburst of posts regarding the legalization of same-sex marriage. I remember Prop 8 in California a few years ago and a guy giving stickers out at church one Sunday. I took two of his Prop 8 stickers and stuck them in the middle of the guys windscreen on the way out of church that day. The 12th Article of Faith forbids us from protesting by sustaining the law of the land. As far as I'm concerned, that's how I understand that article of faith.

New Zealand legalized same-sex marriages back in 2013.  Two friends I went to an LDS school with got married shortly after. They'd been together for 12 years. I was happy for them because they were happy.

I will not judge who someone chooses to love or marry if I am not judged for remaining firm in believing what I do.

It's as simple as that.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
