Flying Away, Metaphorically

It's been a tough 24 hours for Mike and his wobbly brain. Through the love and timely words of friends and family (❤️) I am definitely coming out the other side.It also feels like I've turned a massive corner in my stuckness of the past year and am no longer living in the past but looking to the future. I am experiencing an exciting newness and hope that I've not had for far too long.Out of adversity comes hope, out of hope comes action. On a scale of 1 to 10 I have ranged from 1 and am, as I write this, climbing to a 5.
Never alone.

NZ International Comedy Festival - the Wellington shows

2007 NZ International Comedy FestivalWhen I first arrived in Wellington the annual Comedy Festival was going great but the, one year, it was all pulled back to Auckland only - aaarggh! But, sloooowly they've been extending it back out to the rest of the country and this year it's been held in Auckland and Wellington and with a nationwide tour of those that are up for it (big ups to Ed Byrne).

My picks for the Wellington leg (7th-26th May):
- Andrew McLelland's Mix Tape (Australia)

- Dylan Moran (Ireland)

- Flywheel, Shyster and Flywheel ()

- Jeremy Elwood (NZ)
