Easter has been and gone and now we're already almost into term 2. They say time whizzes by when you're having fun, so I must be having LOTS of fun. Les and I packed up the car and headed off to the sunny city of Gisborne where I was visiting nine schools for Duffy Books In Homes role model assemblies. We got to meet hundreds of fabulous children and their equally fabulous teachers. I was inspired and motivated and reminded now much I love what I do. We then spent time at St Mary's School for a bit of poetic fun and writing.
It got even busier, as we left Gisborne and headed to Taranaki. Yes that is a long way, with some great scenery and a lot of sheep, including an entire flock on the road struggling to decide which way to run, this way or that way, or ALL WAYS! The other thing I was fascinated by was being that close to the wind farm. I was like a kid hooting with delight as I saw those magnificent windmills right next to the road, and stretching as far as I could see along the top of the hills.
It was so much fun to arrive in Stratford and get to go along to their production of "Cinderfeller Hits Field Days.' I always enjoy seeing how different directors add their own interpretation to my words. It's quite exciting in fact as those characters come alive on stage in different ways. We enjoyed meeting everyone down there in Stratford, and getting a typical friendly small town welcome. It was especially good to have my cousin and her daughter come along with us one night. We were pleased to get home to Rosie the dog though after 1650kms. Les is a legend as he drove every one of them!! Three cheers for Les :)
Now I'm home and back into writing. Another production is in motion, and I'm enjoying writing it, but not enjoying those awful mind blanks that can happen to us all. But you keep writing, or take a day away and have a think, or talk to a grandchild as I do for their thoughts, and hey presto the ideas start to flow again.
Don't forget my Youtube channel. I have a few poems. for littlies and you older kidlets as well.
