About Me I take great pleasure in enjoying the simple things in life. Often the simple things are the most amazing, like sitting out on my backdoor step watching daylight turn into night. I enjoy cooking. My favorite constellation is the "Southern Cross" I love looking at the night sky.

Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy Take time to appreciate the seemingly simple things in life, that are the most magnificent and often more complex than taken in on first glance
What Gives Me Hope our capacity to recreate ourselves
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Abolish the death penalty and abolish the three strikes rule. Organisations such as Reprieve,The Innocence Project and the Southern Poverty Law Center, do thorough investigations into cases (unlike the state) and frequently find that the so called evidence does not match the accused. Where there are legitimate concerns that the wrong person may be on death row an execution should never go ahead. If the initial investigations undertaken by the officials were as thorough as what is done by Reprieve, The Innocence Project and the Southern Poverty Law Center innocent people should not then be facing capital murder charges and the likelihood of ending up on death row. What is very concerning is how hearsay often takes the place of evidence. Hearsay is not evidence and often is untrue. There are countess cases where innocent people have been on death row for over twenty years and eventually the state has to admit they were innocent and lets them out. Often this is the result of the tireless work done by these human rights organisations. Sadly, for some innocent people the state goes on regardless and kills them. For those citizens who have money they can defend themselves with capable lawyers. But, who capably defends those who are poor? Certainly not the state lawyers.
For those individuals who are a serious danger to society and where there is hard evidence of guilt they could be given life sentences with no parole, as an alternative to the death penalty. But so many who are not like that fall through the cracks in the system and remain there indefinitely. This needs to change and only pressure on the Government from its own citizens will make that happen.
What/who changed my life and why My Mum because she was an incredible woman
What Bugs Me politicians that don't keep their word, mistreatment of citizens by governments, bills that get passed without asking us  
Passions walking at our wetlands park, gardening, the smell of line dried bed sheets lol, being a mum  
Inspirations I am proud to be a New Zealander, the resiliance of the human spirit, my kids, my mum, sunset, scent of rain on dry earth  
What Scares Me imprisonment without evidence, death penalty, state lawyers who do they work for?, 3 strikes rule in the USA, death row  
  Favorites
Role Models my dad, my mum  
Quotation "this to shall pass" William Shakespeare
Interests taking care of our pets, gardening, spending time with my kids, watching good films  
Books  
Music Johnny Cash, Alice in Chains, Stone Sour, blues, country  
Movies

Favorite Foods mashed potatoes parsley pepper and salt, tandoori masala lamb with jasmine rice &, amp, amp, cucumber and greek yoghurt, green grapes from our garden in summer, peaches from our garden in summer  
Favorite Places being under the Southern Cross stars  
Can't Live Without my two children, coffee and Bell tea, walking our dog at wetlands park, sunsets and stars, rain, being myself, laughter
