The morning these photos were shot, I woke to a blanket of sea fog over the city. It felt as though Auckland was sitting in a damp cloud (my hair was straight when I left the house).
It was a bit of a weather metaphor for my brain function over the past week.
Foggy with a chance of rain.
We all have those weeks don’t we. You reminisce about the last time you had a full night of sleep. And when you do drift off, your to-do lists are dancing in your dreams. People have to tell you things twice (or three times) and the smell of coffee makes you ache inside with desperate desire. Hell, you get tingly when you spot a Red Bull. Anything to wake the senses and get you back on game.
Well this was one of those weeks…
Then one foggy morning, the bus driver tells you that your heels are killer. He says you remind him of the Queen song “Stormtrooper in Stilettos”. At which you laugh out loud for the first time in a week.
You follow that up with a French pastry, a couple of flat whites and a few more laughs.
Suddenly there is a slice of sunlight – just enough to pull your head out of the clouds and remind you that a chance of rain, means somewhere there’s a rainbow.
