cause I can

had a fire last night, cause I can
listened to house music last night, cause I can
watched a bad movie, cause I can
slept like a baby, cause I can
got up and am headed for work, cause I have no choice

screamed at the sun and frightened a child, cause I can

I spent yesterday afternoon in Christchurch, a quick trip for a meeting... it's been a while since I've been to the city and I've never been to a disaster area - if thats the right terminology. I guess I had very mixed feeling about going there.

It was all quite weird and surreal and quite upsetting... I thought seeing things first hand might give me a better understanding and comprehension of what has happened and the continuing struggle for our friends in the south... but it didn't... it just felt unreal. I feel a bit numb.

I am even more concerned for the well being of those in the city after the trip and worry about them as winter approaches.

It didn't feel right taking any disaster pron photos, so here's a picture of the Polytech where we met, the turning leaves of the tress were lovely...

Stay strong Canterbury... keep your sense of humour and patience... my thoughts are with you all

I've lost my mind

In the interests of balance in my current affairs (news) life I've taken to reading the leading right wing blogs alongside the left leaning ones that are more appealing to my own personal views...

If I hadn't I'd not have found these weapons of mass destruction.. hattip to kiwiblog

I doubt I'd ever come across something like this from a leftie.. hang on perhasp this is all about balance
