Back at work today – and yet the sun shone perfectly. All around me in downtown Wellington people were stuck indoors, in suits, in lifts, in a rut…and meanwhile another beautiful day comes and goes and nothing beneficial seems to happen.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the Pacific, my mate Trevor is making plans to go off to the Congo and Burundi, travelling with the United Nations division of ‘Children and Armed Conflict’ to visit kids in refugee camps, to try to bring something beneficial to their lives. These kids are former child soldiers, orphans, refugees – the whole drama.
Makes you think about getting things into some sort of proportion.
