The conversation between my body and mind is often confrontational (more exercise, less exercise, more rest or more work, more reading, etc.) but, in general, I find it easy to agree with one or the other. For some time now, however, I have had more difficulty knowing which of the two should prevail and I wonder if these two will ever be able to agree and let me get on with my life. It should not be that difficult, though, the kereru at the botanical garden seems to know without even asking itself.

The Botanical Garden has gone back to the ducks, ever since the flooding of the past few days, when 300mm of rain (in four days, instead of the usual 80mm) caused landslides, road closures, extensive damage to an important  number of houses,  as well as the evacuation of many residents. The only ones not complaining about the situation seem to be the ducks, who are taking full advantage of their garden.
