That’s my girl Tui. Lying on her back, shooting the treetops, on a very fabulous day we spent together last year. (Really? was it less than a year ago? wow!)
Tui was dealt a rough hand. Life has sometime (OK, often) been a struggle for her. But throughout the pain/difficulty/suckiness, she has kept a strong flame of self-awareness. All of us could emulate her in this regard.
She also has a special gift with nature.
See that? She was 4. The bird was not injured, or tame. It just decided to sit on her finger for ten minutes, then flew away.
Tui has special superhero powers. She is a spider whisperer. If you are on instagram, you should follow her (@tuisted) so you can witness for yourself.
Tui, my firstborn. Lake on a mountaintop.
