22 February 2011


It's been an unexpectedly draining four weeks in NZ. I hope the friends I haven't contacted will forgive me. I intended spending this evening contacting people, tidying up loose ends, but instead, with the rest of the country I have been watching in horror as the news came out of Christchurch.

This trip certainly did not turn out as I expected or hoped. It had highs and lows. The balance was more on the low side, but Christchurch puts it all in perspective.

Now it's time to think back to the highs, learn from the other experiences, and focus on the next steps. But for now we all wait, with the rest of the world, for more news.

Today I am grateful for news that family members are safe.
