Six Pixels of Separation

Six Pixels of Separation – It’s the title of a book I’ve read at least five times by Mitch Joel and it speaks about how we are all connected. So if I don’t know you then I will probably know someone who knows you who knows someone you know that I know too…I think you get the picture!

Anyway…today I painted my 100th rock for 2011! I’ve been looking back over the past 99 days and am appreciating the wonderful kōrero that has been shared, the paintings that have been created with the kohatu and the fact that I’ve been able to share these with so many.
What started out as an exercise to be creating everyday has turned into many conversations connecting me to people, connecting people to people and connecting these special kohatu to people. I’ve also learnt a whole lot about FB and how it operates just through the posting of these rocks every day!

So 100 kohatu down, another 265 to go – I still can’t believe 100 days has flown by already!
The kohatu have become a part of my landscape, they are my daily meditation, my one thing I do everyday and I’ve enjoyed sharing them with everyone! So honouring this achievement today… bring on the next 265 days!

PS – another revived rock – I’m really loving bringing all these paintings back to life.
