    The Universe is a cruel, uncaring void. The key to being happy isn't a search for meaning. It's to just keep yourself busy with unimportant nonsense, and eventually, you'll be dead. -Mr Peanutbutter

    Awesome!! Fascinating country

    Flowering has a lot to do with weather conditions. "They" say when the rata flowers well we're in for a dry summer - which has been the case on the coast (bar a couple big recent rains) and certainly in Southland (driest year/summer ever recorded).
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.
