A Launching Point
‘A Launching Point’
Where to from here?
What do I really want to be?
The answer to each question begins at a launching point.
It may end at a visible horizon, something known.
Or in a place beyond that horizon, a place uncertain.
Whatever it is to be, it is not the status quo.
Courage, energy and vision are what are required at a launching point.
If that is where you are, I wish you those attributes in spades!
Ready to launch?
Last Of The Dying Leaves
‘Last Of The Dying Leaves’
Took this one looking up through the tangled branches of a tree to the clear, pale winter sky, with a few reddish leaves just hanging on.
The tree in question is next to an Auckland hospital.There for a follow-up appointment yesterday with the surgeon who handled my cancer treatment last year and who performed life saving surgery. All going well despite a fair amount of ongoing pain – the surgeon was happy with progress, but confessed that he had no certainty at all that I would make it through.
In this picture I am reminded by nature of the bleak time when I was tangled up and literally just hanging on… but there was always the expanse of a sky above to reach up to. Hope is everything in such a situation, so very powerful…

A fishing vessel moored in the calm sanctuary of Auckland’s downtown Viaduct Basin recently.
The fishermen get a break; as do the fish..!
