"Global Warming" rocks

“You have witchcraft in your lips”
~ William Shakespeare
Takapuna Beach in the glorious sunshine this morning.

Another GLORIOUS Friday!
It might be the start of Spring in the Northern hemisphere 
but that there sun hasn’t discarded us yet  in the Southern hemisphere.

Days like today are BLISSFUL!
The person who penned this next line has it in one. 

“I have a therapist, her name is NATURE” 

In my case, nature is aided and abetted by the hound.
The hound and Sam that is.

Wading knee deep in the waves with your shoes and socks on ISN’T everyone’s idea of therapy but it sure is MINE.  
Some swear by retail therapy, others chocolate therapy, 
still others adopt alcohol as their crutch of choice and 
some just bury their heads in the sand.  
My mate Carol chooses exercise
.. EXTREME exercise ... as her drug of choice.  
Yes, she’s whacky but it’s her only vice.
AmAZing  reflections!
My crutch of choice is simple ... HOUND therapy. 
Add sunshine and blue skies to the mix and I’m invincible.
For this moment in time, life is just DELICIOUS!

"Global Warming"
Adding to the deliciousness of my day has been my “Global Warming”  photo  (so named by Paul Averes)
being chosen as the cover photo for Forest and Bird’s Facebook Page. 
They’re running a competition which closes on 24th March. 
I’ve entered 3 photos in it and, of the 250 photos submitted to date
they selected my crazy Pukekos to grace their page.
We even got to see Panda and his mom on the beach this morning!
It’s a Happiness meter overload moment.
My world rocks in so many ways.
No matter the difficulties to be faced,
no matter the enormous chasms still to cross,
there is magic to be found in the littlest of things.
Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and thinkersbut most of all, surround yourself with those who see the greatness within you,
 even when you don’t see it yourself.”
~ Edmund Lee
Panda pinched the ball and Lorraine had to persuade him to give it back.
Just look at those reflections though!!
