Yes, it's been a long time coming....I think my Whanua in NZ will all be happy I finally followed the deep call to return to this magical land so they don't have to listen to me crying all the time. Aaaaaah, many memories, reflections, flashbacks and yet everything is new, glistening, strange and different also. The shifting of countries is not as straight forward as my 24 year old self remembers, alas we remember the glow and flow not the triviality of life admins thank goodness. It was 11 years ago I left Oz for Nz after 3 transformational years. My dreads were born, my dread business hatched and my spirit loosened, alivened and set free. What, I wonder, will this return uncover for me? Constantly excited by the possibilities of meeting more renditions of my self.
Plans are fluid and shifting and i'm keeping up as best I can, because i'm not in control of this crazy ride. But I have a vehicle! Oh my gosh how much I value owning a set of wheels, the freedom of the road, the endless possibilities, especially here, I feel so spoilt by opportunities. And so I keep coming back to the deep listening, of both my body wisdom and the deep humming of the earth....which direction now? Whats the next step? It's an ongoing process of trust. Throw in a lockdown why don't you...lets just test this calling some more...nah, not wavering, not looking back but leaning back into the support of my ancestors, grounding down, getting my fingers into the dirt and asking the Kaitiaki of this land for blessings and guidance.
So i'll be working mobile here for the time being, between the gold coast and the sunshine coast, covid permitting and possibly at some markets near you soon! Please keep posted on my fb and insta for my current locations...I promise I will settle in one place soon....Meanwhile i'll do my best to meet your needs. My ears are open to your thoughts, suggestions and local intel!
Well, I'm feeling pretty refreshed after my amazing 7 weeks away overseas catching up with family and friends and generally roaming around aimlessly. But i'm finally back at the needle, i'm sure you'll be pleased to know. In fact I haven't stopped since I landed back 3 weeks ago. Great to meet lots of new faces as well as catching up with my lovely regulars. I am slowly building my stock up again for summer so bare with me and there'll be new goodies soon. Hopefully this summer I will have my own palm oil free dread shampoo bars as well as a dread conditioning balm to help against the sizzling NZ sun.
So looking forward to another great kiwi summer, i'm already feeling the warming bbq vibe. Hope to see you all soon.
Sorry everyone but i'm afraid i'm going to escape the chilly nights for a few weeks. I'm off to catch up with my Whanau back home in possibly sunny Scotland!?
I'll be out the country from the 1st of August to the 20th September but will still be contactable to give prices and information via email and text though email is preferable.
I apologise for any inconvenience this might cause but i'll be sure to bring back some travel stories, keep tuned to my facebook page for photos and updates. And business will be as normal from the 20th september.
keep posted for current dread bus locations and other exciting news
