Sitting outside Mac’s Brewery on a Monday afternoon enjoying a brew – watching the clouds quickly drift by – “Stand By Me” playing over the stereo – winds whipped up – I’m the luckiest son of a gun – feeling like I pulled off The Great Rock ‘n Roll Swindle (a la The Sex Pistols). Living a dream is absurdly beautiful. Unbelievable. Fantastic. Amazing. “Sweet as” (New Zealand slang). Every day is an adventure – new scenes, sights, characters, emotions. I feel truly alive. Young skateboarders build their skills like I use to do.
Te Papa museum is a stunning architectural sight – with sections of roof echoing the curves of clouds above and waves below. Looks like I’ll finish that pint after all. Brilliant!
