There is a pitter patter on the veranda roof and a few raindrops in the air. This is only a gentle sprinkle though and won’t be enough to break the drought, the driest spell in New Zealand over 70 years. I sat overlooking the beach at Napier yesterday after running a half day workshop and was struck by:
- how hot it was in Hawkes Bay (nudging 26 degrees)
- how big the sky and ocean looks, especially as there is no land for thousands of miles out from this horizon
- how much we take rain for granted and how fragile life feels without it.
