A narrowing field

What we write on can sometimes change what we write. At least that was the plan at today's writing session which involved decreasing widths of paper, forcing us to write in shorter sentences until we were writing only one or two per line. Each paper had a different topic. First was about Dunedin/Otepoti; second was about a character, person or statue; and third was about what made us feel good and gave us a sense of wellbeing. Big thanks to Karen for the concept!


Dunedin - Best Place to Live

I think of students down the north end.
Dunedin comes alive when they are here.
Quiet at Christmas holidays.
Then we get visitors who enjoy the beaches with the locals.
Depending on weather, sports teams play on Oval.
Scottish, Irish and English are Dunedin's heritage.
Now we have people living here
from all parts of the world.
Best place to live.

Feeling Good

Weather - seeing sun, smelling flowers.
View from top of hill anywhere,
Breathing fresh air.
Visiting with friends.
Animals love me no matter what I do.
Going to Artsenta.
Having an aqua jog at Moana Pool then hot shower.
Heaven

Peter Pan

Young boy stands proud in the gardens.
Children climb on him,
Birds sit on him.
Peter Pan
Friend to all
Story book friend
Saves Wendy from Captain Hook.
Looks after the lost boys,
Our hero.
