where-the-magic-happens

Stepped out of a comfort zone on Saturday when I got to share a reading from my book We Are the Rock with families at the Auckland Art Gallery last Saturday. I’m used to working with Maori and Pasifika teenagers – that’s a comfort zone for me.

Really different to work with Asian and European parents and their primary aged children. I felt like saying “no” when the Art Gallery initially asked me to do it because doing public kinds of things is not something I feel comfortable doing. I’m really glad I did it though, feels like I grew  a little as an author and a person by stretching myself.

I’ve got to keep saying “yes” to uncomfortable things that are on the pathway I’m taking – that’s where the magic happens. Thank you to all those people who continually encourage us to be brave.
