Kia Ora!

I am so pleased and very happy to be in such a beautiful, warm and spiritual place sorounded by very hospitable people whose willingness to help and share their knowledge is truly incomparable.

The moment I arrived I felt a very unexplianable warmth and life in me. My feeling at that very moment is unexplainable. I felt the oneness of my being human and teh marae and I guess that affirms teh indigenous perspective of being one with their land. Thank you so much to DTp for giving us the opportunity and to Bruce for the hospitality.

Ka Pai!

Tena koutou e panui mai ana
Greetings to the people of the many winds of the world.
I recently spent time with Matua Bruce, pare and the whanau of tapu te ranga. I was moved to write a poem.
Papa Bruce asked me to put in this guest book, "so it will Enrich others."
Here it is

"Inside everyone's heart lies a Whare that waits to be realised. A
building that houses all the dreams, hopes and aspirations that one
holds so dear, a receptacle that brings to fruition the very corners of
one's soul, the many aspects, attributes and accomplishments that make
up the being and it yearns to be set free.
A fine standing sculpture that all may see and in the time of the
leaving are left with liberty.
This kaainga, this place, this whare, this home, is a painting, a waka
huia, a statute of wood and of stone.
Its blood is the wairua of Manaakitanga Whanaungatanga and Aroha for I
am you and you are me in the endless tide of wairua.
Tapu Te Ranga Karanga, Tapu Te Ranga Maranga, when the Pare Hinetai No
Waitaha opens her arms to espouse. That house breathes you, and the
world breathes that house."

Peace be with you all
