    Lewis C. Mainzer...

    Monarchs

    The monarch butterfly has come
    to rule upon a purple throne
    of stately phlox
    in palace gardens bronze and green.
    No law prescribes what's orthodox,
    no guards attend, no horse, no arms,
    no peasants cower in their farms,
    no blood avenges ancient harms
    for this late-summer king and queen.
    Their reign is brief. but all serene.
    What can such gentle governing mean?

    It’s the first time I’ve felt truly embarrassed to be a New Zealander.

    Me too.

    "For too long we’ve treated issues of mental health and addiction only when they become a crisis. That’s no longer acceptable – in fact it never was.”

    David Clark

    Budget 2019

    None of that maters anymore, it was way out side reality in the first place. Mental heath and wellbeing are achieved by human beings caring about one and other.

    Empathy isn't something you just feel, it needs to be acted on.

  • Hard News: We are all Twitter,

    It think it’s important to point out, in the interest of good journalism. Donald Trump is an idiot and America isn’t managing its pandemic response well. I have seen the graph.

    So that makes us awesome and everything the New Zealand pandemic response team does is spot on, with out question. So don’t question it! The Labour party is better than the national party. And I’m popular.

    And I’d also like to say, because this is serious as – Mike is a dick! See, I must be clever, I pointed that out.

    And I made scones.

    Not so bad.

    My neighbour just text to say she has a spare bottle of spray on hand sanitiser for me.

    It’s going to be handy.

    Are you doing this alone?

    What we have here is my painting of a 2 dimensional object. Let me explain, in my most manly voice.

    I like the sphere for all sorts of reasons. Obviously, I owe my life to this one we have migrated all over. But as an artist, and amateur science nurd, it's that the sphere or more technically named ball, is the only 2 dimensional object I happen to have laying about the house.

    The spherical object in its pure form looks the same no mater what angel it seen, which makes is 2 dimensional.

    Open to being shouted down on that.
