Sculpture on the Gulf - Waiheke Island 2013

The Waiheke Headlands Sculpture on the Gulf  is a joyous, thought provoking, and wonderful community event.
Congratulations to all those involved.

... I am inspired by these quotes from Dennis O'Connor in 'Following the Raupo Boy' in the catalogue. 

'There are things we will never see unless we walk to them.'

'In the course of a walk we usually find out something about our companion, this is true even when we travel alone.'
 From In praise of Walking by Thomas A Clark

Dennis  reminds us that raupo, the bullrush reed is a symbol of Hope.

 Come, walk with me along the headlands.
Let the photographs talk.

Meet, Sharonagh - we talked with words about words, thoughts as words, where do words go after we have spoken...
I listened to the recorded sounds of conversations as people walked by.

After our lunch at the Oyster Inn (sculpture on a plate) we met with a group of adventurous young Argentine women.

 A marvellous day on Waiheke with friends...  A good walk....with my mind filled with ideas.
