The Tiki is a talisman of New Zealand and her Maori people. From ancient times it has been regarded as a good luck charm. It is widely believed that it represents the unborn human embryo and in Maori culture this represents a particularly powerful spirit for warding off bad luck. Years ago the most valuable tikis were hand carved from greenstone. They were handed down through the generations and are treasured possessions today.

Wishing good luck to all at the Peak!!!

I think we all have our own "Tiki", whether it be a physical talisman or an internal "heart string".

My personal Tiki is the uplifting support of a wide-spread family, one that came be viewed in photos or in person, and heard from daily.

But the real value of my Tiki is the heart string that connects us all. I feel power of love from family and friends, those hidden hopes, wishes, and prayers offered up in moments of discomfort. The love continues through life and time, reproducing over and over within each new person, and carried forward only by sharing.

I hope you all have a Tiki as well

Kia Ora,

Today in Aotearoa (land of the long white cloud) the weather has been more dreary than merry...

...with grey hues that bring the blues
...with a light mist of rain that tinkles as it gently sprinkles
...with an eerie chill in the air that makes you wish you were
elsewhere


and its been a purrfect day for going to an indoor shopping mall

love ladybird luv

Kia ora Lady bird

Thank you for sharing our home with the peak
It is here that we seek
to touch the hearts of others
no matter the day of the week
we can always find a friend at the peak
It is here where we are all sisters and brothers
No matter our backgrounds or colours

Nga mihi nui kia koe e hoa
(Greetings to you friend)

Tiki: It also represents the innocence of an unborn child and the great potential that man kind has to be great. The tiki also represents the capacity that man has to love all things human or not.

Love is universal it is what distinguishes us from a rigid pole of steel.
Rest well
Sleep tight
and You'll wake up
full of joy and light

Kia Ora,

Today in Aotearoa (land of the long white cloud) its rather cloudy...

...with gloomy grey skies to meet the eyes
...with the sun hidden from view like a sock in a shoe
...with a strong breeze causing you to shiver and freeze


...and its a purrfect day for dressing up snuggly warm in polarfleece and having a steaming hot cuppa java while listening to some music on the stereo ;b
...coffeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!:D...giggles
