Autumn in Central (I)
Lunch with Alfie
A pause during our Hobbit Location Guidebook expedition with Alfie Speight and Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopters. It was just an amazing day, a "pinch me am I doing this" memory.
Maybe the paths that you shall each tread are already laid before your feet, though you do not see them.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
“It is said by the Eldar that in water there lives yet the echo of the Music of the Ainur more than in any substance that is in this Earth".
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion

Sunrise over Farewell Spit

and no one makes me close my eyes
so I throw the windows wide
and call to you across the sky
This is where my heart truly lives
Peering over the wind-blown manuka, looking at mountains.
