Stars of the Sea

We’ve just got home from Taradale so I’m posting my rock that I painted yesterday…
There’s a party going on inside this house and I’m out in the garage painting my rock for the day…

It reminds me of a starfish with all it’s arms (or legs); amazing little creatures that look stiff when you see them on the side of a rock but I imagine they move quite gracefully with their water vascular systems that actually help them move through water…
Like many of our ocean’s creatures they are so important for the ocean’s ecology, intricately woven into life’s cycles, systems and beauty. There are many stars of the seas, each with their own patterns and shapes adding to the richness and diversity of life…
And at the end of each arm, they have an eye that sees and feels their way through light and dark……
We often forget about the intricacies of nature, the amazing stories it has to tell and the amazing creatures that inhabit this place we call earth. Next time we’re at the beach, or in the forest or in the garden, look at a sunflower, a ladybug, a sea urchin and ask – what part does this have to play in life?
Arohanui,

Thanks to the Dobbie whānau for looking after us last night as we celebrated Kahurere’s 2nd birthday! : )
