Remembering Kiwis: the resilience of people

Three years ago the Lawyer and I spent a month cruising around New Zealand.  We had a delightful time, full of thrills and smiles.  And then we reached Christchurch and the mood changed. via Kia Ora day thirteen – tears for a town.

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published four books - Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle, My Father and Other Liars, Salisbury Square and Buster & Moo. In addition I have published two anthologies of short stories, Life, in a Grain of Sand and Life in a Flash. More will appear soon, including a memoir of my mother's last years. I will try and continue to blog regularly at geofflepard.com about whatever takes my fancy. I hope it does yours too. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

  2. I hadn’t read this on first posting Geoff – a sobering reminder of all our ChCh friends have been – and continue to go – through. Last I heard the Cathedral is being rebuilt as was and lots of complaints about missing the chance to modernise it 🙂 Did you know there has since been a series of quakes based around Seddon (and Wellington) that caused havoc and the closure of SH1 and somewhat isolated Kaikoura? We’ve been driving the ‘long way round’ to get to the ferry all year. Sometimes I think if we don’t drown in excessive rainfall I suspect we’ll shake into little pieces!
    PS I’m a bit erratic on the blogs at the moment due to the past month being one of the more eventful personally (accidents, losses, workmen, all one after the other, though the workmen managed to overlap one event) It’s not that I don’t still love you 🙂 ❤
