i'm staying with Dad in Palmerston North, a medium-sized regional town (they call it a city) in the heart of a dairy-farming district in the North Island of aotearoa. in this suburb everyone has a lawn and a garden. most properties have trees and that just about always includes a lemon and/or a grapefruit tree. citrus is king. the trees are laden, and they hang freely over garden fences and into laneways. so not only do i have the pick of Dad's lemon tree, but also the neighbour's grapefruit. nothing like a freshly-squeezed grapefruit juice first thing in the morning.
who am i? born in aotearoa, my heart place and spiritual home, now living in australia. i thrive on being in the bush and breathing fresh mountain air. love the outdoors, love to grow my own food, eat organic whole and natural raw vegan food and experience every moment of my life as blessed.
