Montreal meanderings... from Dux to Knox (Part 2)

Another illustration today of how quickly things are changing around here, post-quake... one of the buildings featured in yesterday's post was demolished today, adding another empty lot to the landscape.

Just another bouncy day in Shakeytown

Just another bouncy day in Shakeytown

Today has been a particularly shakey day, even for Shakeytown. Here's a few articles if you want all the details:
- The Press
- NZ Herald
- NZ Herald
- TV3

Here we go again, another clusterf*ck of seismic shittery to ruin your day, just when things seemed to be quietening down again. I know it's totally within the expected aftershock pattern but that doesn't make it any easier to deal with.

There's only one thing for it... time to bake some cookies. Chocolate chip ...

If the delay is to help residents with the complex situation that will arise with several claims, then I see that as a really important reason. I don't understand why that has not been the key message in the media around this issue. Getting it right is important too but people will appreciate it even more if they understand the delay will make it easier and less stressful for them inthe long run.

September Claims / EQC visits

Is anyone else still waiting for movement on their Sept claim? And I have been told by our insurance company that they have at least 4 families on their books who have still not been seen by EQC for damage received in September. Does anyone know anyone in that group?

A friend of mine was at a function in the North Island last week, when someone asked him how he'd been affected by the earthquake. Before he could answer, a man standing with the group groaned loudly and said "oh I'm f***ing sick of hearing about the earthquake!". Not quite knowing what to say in reply, my friend simply turned on his heel and walked away.

I guess I can understand how people elsewhere may be suffering from 'earthquake fatigue'. It's old news to them now, the crisis is past ...

What is the Temple?

What is the Temple?

The Temple concept is not one that would normally spring to mind. We are not talking about a building devoted to a god, demigod or other religious practice; we are talking about creating an open and safe space to allow people to let go of their emotions.
