    I loved David’s greeting.
    I have two mountains – Table Mountain and Alishan. Born in South Africa and raised near Cape Town, this mountain has always been a solid rock in the background of my life. I have hiked up the mountain in my youth and I have done the cable cars too. When everything around you crumbles, you can always look up and find Table Mountain, as quiet and solid as ever.
    I lived in Taiwan for 7 years and “Alishan”, or “Ali Mountain” is one of the most peaceful spaces to retreat to. Being amidst the tea fields always gave me much calm and perspective.

    my mihi

    Maunga: Gold mountain
    Awa: Fraser River
    Waka: Nissan X-trail
    Tipuna: Father and paternal grandfather
    Waiata: too hard to pick one these days with my new found joy in music. Put Records Your On – Corinne Bailey Rae I like as it’s slightly nostalgic and celebrates the ease of hopeful and sunnier days.
    Iwi: educators designers artists gardeners

    Reflecting about the land and body of water I identify with, I realized how my kinship to the land is rooted in my family history, in particular through the lives of my paternal grandfather and father and their contributions to country and community. My affinity is with people who educate, create, make and nurture so those are my tribes. Crafting a mihi is a simple yet meaningful exercise so I hope others will give this challenge a try!
