Early this morning I was talking to my lovely student Karen in Auckland. She was coming to the end of the longest day while I was starting the shortest day. As winter beckons to me summer unfolds for her. So much of life varies because of perspective, the lens we use – it took me a while to realize I had left my glasses in the hairdressers – our vantage point, the context. I am grateful to those who offer me a different perspective and help me see things in a fresh way.
