The idiomatic expression about the white elephant.


My dream last night was themed around the second coming. I was here at home with some family members and my two Aunties walked up the porch and through the front door. I asked them where Larry was and they told me not to worry, that he was coming.

With the new dynamic in the family now, which only got worse over the last few days, he was who I needed to see even if it was in my dreams. It seemed real, it felt real and for just a moment it was real for me.

You can't un-care when you've cared 100% for so long. In my attempt to try worry about me and mine, I've depressed myself worrying about how I left the dynamic last week, how it got worse over the weekend and how matters got so deep and ugly that I hold huge regret for something that isn't really mine.

Right now I don't know what to say to anyone in my family anymore, but I wish I could spend a day with my Larry. He'd know how to fix me ... even if it was only for a day.

Forever seems so far away today.

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!
