The last few days I have become increasingly fascinated with Pinterest. I created a few boards some months ago, and revisited my virtual pin board or scrapbook, earlier this week. So far, my boards include books, thoughts, ideas, wishes, likes, charlatan clinic, social media, theatre, art, film, fashion, inspiration, celebrity and costume! So what is this all about? From what I can ascertain, it is all about you, and what makes you happy. I am sold. Searching for everything that I enjoy, and collecting virtual images, footage and text from everyone to anything. Inspirational.



Today I met with a fellow actor friend, in one of my favourite cafe’s in Ponsonby, Auckland. New Zealand is certainly extreme, when it comes to ‘coffee culture’. Most connoisseurs refuse to drink instant, and will turn their nose’ up, if not the ‘bean’ of choice. I am one of those people. When I travel, especially to Asia for example, where do you buy a long black? Do you import your own beans, if you reside there? That is what I would have to do. Normally, my daily requirement is a triple shot latte. I love the smell of coffee. I wonder why some people can drink any blend, and others would rather go without? Coffee, also creates an experience, when labouring over scripts, definitely. ‘Allpress’ is my vice, great coffee, always.
