I’m a Kiwi girl living in Raglan, New Zealand. Raglan’s on the west coast, and the west coast feels like my mother. When I occasionally visit the east coast, it feels like a foreign country.
The west coast holds me.
I like the wild here, and the wild knows me.
When I sit on the black sand, when there’s no one there, when it’s windy, when the waves are messy and big,
I could turn into a toi-toi.
In the curved hand of this coast and harbour I feel nestled in, safe.
Nestled in to the side of New Zealand,
Tucked away, down the bottom of the world,
Where I belong.
Also, I like eating, gardening, pruning, cooking, reading, writing.
I love my two girls, and I love finding how to let them grow up free.
I’m 36 and I love being every age I get to. I still love my birthdays, and cakes and presents.
I’m married and I’m still in love with love my husband:-)
I can be quite contrary, and very determined.
I’m quite shy, and I take a long time to make friends.
I was always terrified of dogs, but now I have my own, a big mongrel-mix, and I love her.
I want to be well enough to help children who need help.
