Taking another day off today and I will head to Wellington tomorrow.
They say weather will be nice tomorrow.
I take 2 days off in a row for the first time in 3 weeks since I left Auckland.
Got to re-charge my energy before landing South Island.
Taking a look at Howard’s work place. He’s a carpenter and he also makes furniture.
Sunny and warm. I felt like taking a walk around the beach in Samurai costume with One-Tooth Clog (Ipponbageta) on.
Late afternoon, Jody(a daughter of Howard & Jan’s) came and visit us with two girls(her daughters).
We enjoyed KENDAMA(Cup & Ball Game) and Ipponbageta together.
I gave them some crafts of ORIGAMI(Paper folding).
Kids were so glad to see ORIGAMI for the first time.
Sometimes I feel I’m sowing the seeds of PEACE here and there where I visit during my travel.
It is my mission to bring happiness to those who welcome me.
What I can do is not so much but I’m really happy if they make happy smiles for just a little while.
I’m really happy too if we can share a happy and peaceful moment with each other.
Probably I’m trying to make families wherever I am while traveling.
If we are all earthling and citizens of the world, I feel as if we might be brothers and sisters.
May it be a comfortable and easy time for all of them as well as for me.
