A knitted g-string keeps things seemly!
Easily unravelled, though? ;-)
I think part of our trouble here in Chch is that we're so worn out with disasters both natural and governmental. We're really, really tired. There are so many battles to be fought on so many fronts, and many people are preoccupied with what's most personal and immediate: trying to get their own homes sorted out.
So any political solidarity people in other parts of NZ can provide, we are grateful for.
Can you blame them for being cocky?
Blame them for being cocky, no. Blame them for abusing due process and taking away more of our rights, yes.
I know we’re on the same side here Sacha. I’d like to yell at all the people who didn’t vote in the last election. Voter alienation and authoritarian government can be mutually-reinforcing I think. But is there a tipping point when the disaffected voters get scared and angry? Have we reached that point yet in Canty? Hope so.
that's who our nation and Canterbury's voters have elected.
We didn't elect them to take our democracy away, though. You can't get a mandate for that!
Love that one of your brother with the harbour, classic shot. And that enclosed feeling is so Wellington.
Waxeye outside the kitchen window this morning.
Beautiful! And yes, waxeyes are not fussy about which way up they are. ;-)
Thank you for articulating this so well. So hard to believe we're being treated this way. I was trying to explain it all to a friend up north on the phone last night, and she kept saying things like, "But ECan still has to get working properly again, doesn't it?", and "But there must be some good reason for it, isn't there?", and "Surely there must be some good things in the Plan?"
What the govt's inflicting on the people of Chch beggars belief. I think a lot of us are so paralysed with horror we don't know what to do. But sign a petition, yep, I can do that!

Great picture, though.

A pretty sky! I appreciate all these glimpses of China that you provide, Chris. :-)
Gudrun, these are awesome (and heartbreaking) photos, thank you.
(and Kebabette, and Joe!)
I particularly like the one of Eugenie Sage with the cabbage tree. :-)
