"I love this place more and more. One is conscious of it as I used to be conscious of New Zealand. I mean if I went for a walk there & lay down under a pine tree & looked up at the wispy clouds through the branches I came home plus the pine tree - don’t you know? Here its just the same. I go for a walk & I watch the butterflies in the heliotrope & the young bees & some old bumble ones and all these things are added unto me."
That is exactly how I feel about this country of mine too. Bless Katherine Mansfield. Quote available now on an organic poetry + cloth T shirt.
