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 several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. 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 🙂 ❤
