South Sea Spring
Spring has arrived in the Southern Hemisphere.
Today a friend and I visited the South Seas ...
... art gallery, that is. Out at Brighton, a small coastal suburb just out of Dunedin.
We were there to be part of a promotional advertisement for the gallery, filmed by local television. Janet (owner of the gallery) has a dream / vision for the gallery and garden space to be used for arts events.
Dancing, poetry, painting, pottery, sculpture, music ... food and coffee ...
The nearness of the sea providing the sound of breaking surf.
Mosaics ... broken things used to form something new.
Back home another spring announcement; outside my writing-room window, young kowhai blossom.
... a bellbird, the icing on the cake.
