Day 21 The Icosahedral Dome

This was the photo I meant to post a week ago, on the final day of the Ema Saiko Fellowship at New Pacific Studio. It’s the yurt-like nomadic structure that Lydia and Vlad were building at the studio while I was there. I’ve known it since it was bags of wool and pieces of dowelling and it was great to see it finally assembled. It was very warm inside and comfortably fitted 7 people.

Day 20 - Model T

Just went for a ride in this fine specimen of a 1926 Model T Ford. Thanks Ryan!

Day 19 - New Pacific Studio

Or more accurately, the farm next door…

Also, I am reading at Wairarapa Word on Sunday, with novelist Tracy Farr. Be great to see you there if you’re in the hood.

Well, I’m one sixteenth Norwegian, so this lovely little church felt vaguely ancestral. It was built in 1881 on a hill in Mauriceville (near Eketahuna) by Norwegian settlers.

Also, I am being interviewed tomorrow morning on Carterton Connections, Arrow FM 92.7FM 10am Friday 4 April 2014.

Day 16 - Pukaha lookout

Another lovely walk through Pukaha/ Mt Bruce today. I also recommend you check out the collaborative birthday Tuesday poem
