Rainbows and cleaning.

Mum there's a rainbow outside.
Ok.
Did you know that in the book at school, it says that at the end of the rainbow there's a pot of gold.
Ok.
We should walk to the end of the rainbow Mum. We can have all the gold in the pot.
There's no pot of gold.
What is there then?

Dirt for the lilies.
That bloody lying book.

I saw a Japanese movie once, where at the end of the rainbow was where the foxes and fox spirits (kitsune) had their weddings, and they didn't like humans to see, so if you saw you had to commit Seppuku. This kids mom warned him but he snuck out, and when he got back his mom had a message from the foxes. So he had to go past the end of the rainbow to go appeal to the Fox King.

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!
