Matariki is visible above the horizon. Welcome the arrival of the new year.
Tatai whetu ki te rangi, mau tonu mau tonu.
Tatai tangata ki te whenua, ngaro noa ngaro noa.
The abundant stars in our skies shine brightly forever.
People, however, have only their life-time & then they are gone.
Time to pause & remember those who have left us.
Time to consider the part they have played in our lives.
Time to wonder how our lives can & will continue without them.
Now, is our time.
Let's enjoy it together.
Happy New Year New Zealand
