Rā 94 Rātu 4 o Paengawhāwhā

Tail end of Cyclone Debbie is dumping its rain on New Zealand. Wet! Another French film this evening – perfect weather for going to the cinema. A social commentary whose message was bleak but which managed to leave you with a sense of hope for humanity. ‘Standing Tall‘ or ‘La Tête Haute’ tells the story of a young boy growing up and surviving against the odds with the help of a judge with compassion and a social worker who recognises himself in the boy. A few tears were shed!

Today’s photo is from the rain.  A splash of red in the wet.

Day 63 March 3rd 2016

So how is it that in the southern hemisphere the first day of the season is on the 1st of the month but in the northern hemisphere the seasons change at the equinox?  The first of March definitely didn’t feel like autumn here but the light this evening down the river path and the colour of the fallen leaves is certainly consistent with autumn.
