It is better to be an outcast, a stranger in one’s own country, than an outcast from one’s self. It is better to see what is about to befall us and to resist than to retreat into the fantasies embraced by a nation of the blind.

Beautiful People

I have been grateful enough to have touched certain people in my life. New Zealand has been a tough nut because they don't share me. I was born and raised in a different country. Why should they care? But the Human Experience is universal, and we all share that. I bled when the All Blacks came home, and especially suffered when Dougie Howlett suffered a breakdown of sorts, cause I thought he would have made the difference, and so did he. Hence. I love my former workmates at REAP. Everyone, from top to bottom. I was never in your class of action and committment but thank you none the less for letting me be a part of your family.
