Taranaki – a place like no other.

We had the best weekend at home hanging out with family – walking on the beach, enjoying the most delicious coastal spa pool ever, standing under the mighty snow-covered Taranaki and sussing how we can support Albie best over the next wee while.

It was a weekend filled with rest and peace and gratitude. Helped significantly, I should add, by great lashings of mid-winter sunshine. And standing under Mount Taranaki – that mighty maunga always makes me feel grounded. Always.

“The challenge is to be at peace, amid all the turmoil that life brings. This life is beautiful. It is. And its beauty only begins to be appreciated the moment you accept it – not question it, or challenge it. Whatever may happen.”         – Maharaji
