OR....


or we could follow up on your interest in NZ history and Maori art. NZ history is fascintating and unique. i recommend you take the opportunity to find out about it. it is your [most of you] heritage. it is part of your identity.

you are KIWIS [most of you] - and that means you are connected to Aotearoa, NZ, maori, pakeha, tauiwi [spelling?] pacifica and more.


anyway - feel free to disagree - it's a conversation starter


i'd love to do some art and investigate our heritage.


WHO ARE WE?


p.s. did you know that people overseas think we are called kiwis because of kiwifruit, which they call "kiwis"? in fact, we are KIWIS because of our national bird.

in fact, we could go to kakepuku and the otorohanga kiwihouse in term four.


p.p.s. i LOVE being a NEW ZEALANDER

i think that we should live life like a mayfly:

“The common mayfly has a life expectancy of just one day. But is he miserable about it? Not one bit. He fills his day with the things he loves. He soars. He swoops. He savours every moment. Maybe there’s a lesson in this for us longer living creatures. Just think. If we embrace life like a mayfly, what a life that would be! Vodafone! Make the most of now.”

i think that we should have maybe five pictures and make some sort of collage with different textures and layers. maybe there could be different themes, like maori history, or maui ledgends etc. i think it would be great to be able to express our feelings of pride, Proudness and love of our beautiful country; NEW ZEALAND!!!

IM A ROOM5IAN said...

p.s. that is off the vodafone ad on tv and i have a video of it on my blog if you would like to check it out

Miss Candy said...

i think everyone should embrace life and not fear it. It would be a better life.

IM A ROOM5IAN said...

live by the mayfly!!! and yes, it is off the ad on t.v., the vodafone one.

heaps of people go overseas and learn, see, and explore other countries, but what about NEW ZEALAND, your home? i think getting to know our country better will make us really apreciate life as we have it here and now, we are extremely lucky, but some things are taken for granted...

Kitty Kat said...

YES!!!!
Hehe!
DOOO live like a mayfly!

IM A ROOM5IAN said...

they're funny little things... hehe

Skipper Bob said...

i like the first idea best (the planet earth and beyond)

Kitty Kat said...

Yes I do too!

IM A ROOM5IAN said...

i like the second one better, but they arew both cool! may be we could make or do something, and we choose one of the topics; planet earth and beyond, or New Zealand! ( im not sure if that makes sense, hehe)

SpUdArOoNy said...

I don't know which i like best.. they both sound good.

Yes LIVE LIKE A MAYFLY

[[make the most of now.]]

IM A ROOM5IAN said...

:) definately!!!!

Skipper Bob said...

what is this live like a mayfly about?

Kitty Kat said...

mayflys only live for one day so they make the mot of it...the motto is 'make the most of now'.
I REALLY think that we should do the "PLANET EARTH AND BEYOND' as I have done kiwiana over and over and over and over and over and ove and ov....

IM A ROOM5IAN said...

that is why i think that we should do something, but chose what topic we use.

SKIPPER BOB! se my 2nd blog for details, it has something to do with that vodafone/mayfly ad that used to be on TV.

Kitty Kat said...

Yaha!!
