MANIAPOTO ARTS FESTIVAL TE KUITI
'HURT TO HEALING'
An incredible festival to be a part of. I got to share my poetry with hundreds of children over a few days. Here I am performing with one of our talented granddaughters. It was all inspirational.
Only seems like last week I was talking about us all looking forward to Christmas and summer holidays, and now in less than two weeks it's over. Although I like to think summer might still be on its way. I think next year I'll be asking Santa for more warm sunny days for swimming and enjoying being outside! But Les and I did have a thoroughly enjoyable time down in Dunedin/Mosgiel back in December, where we got to see 'Santa's Last Stand' being performed by an incredibly talented cast at the Fire Station theatre. They were brilliant, and did my script proud.
I'll let you into a little secret. I've been a bit lazy with my writing. Writing is a funny old thing at times, as when you don't have inspiration or motivation, nothing happens on the paper. I sit down and make a start, then go, 'Can't be bothered," and I hop up and walk away. It makes me understand more what it's like for those of you out there that struggle with writing. You tell me you can't get ideas, or know what to say, and I've felt just like you a lot of the holidays. But on a positive, the last few days I've felt the ideas starting to bubble away inside my head, (which would be a scary place to be haha.)
I'm starting to make a few plans for this year. I think after 2020 we're all a bit nervous about making too many plans! Duffy Book assemblies are in planning and I'll be heading to..........drum roll please....... GISBORNE! This is our third time trying to get there, so fingers crossed it finally happens.
Don't forget my Youtube channel. I have a few poems. for littlies and you older kidlets as well.
