I am feeling the winter blues
but let me tell you
about a couple of bright spots in these early days of winter.
First, a gift for me, imagined and crafted by my daughter ~
Second, the arrival of a new battery for my old Panasonic Lumix camera. Arrival? Yes, arrival! One of the quirky aspects of living in a small country which is home to much other quirkiness; read, kiwifruit and kiwis and a pregnant Prime Minister
is that replacement lithium batteries for older model cameras aren’t readily available. They must be ordered and then shipped to New Zealand. My battery, assembled and packaged in Australia, took 8 weeks to reach me. Delivery day to my doorstep was an event; a celebration; an arrival; an eagerly awaited occasion.
No longer am I reliant upon my little mobile phone camera to capture my moods with feeble clarity.
Now, I can focus on finding some light in the gloom.
