Whanau

I had a lovely time with whanau today. Spent some time with Dad, Uncles, Aunty, cuzzies, nieces and nephew and connected with another cuzzie who I haven’t seen for ages here on Facebook as well!
It was so special to see three brothers sitting at the table talking about a whole lot of stuff, laughing, you know that sore tummy laughing as cuzzin Dawn reminded me about today, reminiscing about the old days…talking about nothing at times and giving each other stick!

Reminds me of how important whanau is, connection to place and people, whakapapa and all those things…it also reminds me of how fast time flies and how we need to look after and nurture our elders and loved ones.
I still have purple in my rocks at the moment, seems to be my colour for now and a colour called digeridoo which is deep brown and earthy.
Day 23 – I’ve painted 23 rocks this year and the more I paint, the more I want to create and share…
Hei apopo – until tomorrow
Arohanui,
Jo 🙂
