Other Ways Of Knowing

E iti noa ana na te aroha.
Even though my gift is small, it is given with love.
I went to the mailbox today and there tucked inside was a yellow parcel, addressed to me, from John Broomfield. I was excited to open it and I knew what it was – a book written by John called “Other Ways of Knowing”. It had come from the South by boat, from John’s house at a beautiful placed called Te Wairua.

On the inside cover of the book was a message from John, “E iti noa ana na te aroha” I was so touched by this simple and meaningful message.
I had known John for a little while before I realised he was an author and discovered his book in a suggested reading list for one of the Whare Wānanga here in Aotearoa. And he was kind enough to send it to me.
I’m SO excited to read it!

And how lovely that my rock today reflects that very kōrero. This rock is approx 3 cm in diameter – a small rock but its message and meaning, special all the same.
Thank-you John!
Arohanui,
