The Star Effect

I am not a fan of Beyonce, but I have the Beyonce complex.
We all do.

The elevator incident that happened between her sister and husband, what she did is what we all do.

When we walk by a homeless person on the street.
When something is done that you'd never do.
When we see a parent discipline their child in public.
When a man degrades a woman openly.
When someone says something you don't agree with.
We retreat back into our shell when something foreign prods us. Like a turtle.

That is the Beyonce complex and naturally, we apply that complex.
I am still not a fan.
I would like to go to the Justin Timberlake concert, but for$179 per ticket I'll keep watching him on youtube.

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!
