    Sorry they didn't upload in the greatest resolution.
    Yeah, the forum engine resizes them automatically. I haven't been able to find any settings yet by which this could be changed. Maybe Malc can look into that when he comes back.

    They look just fine. I am really curious as to what they are and how they came to be, though.

    Noting Diamond Lake and then Whakatipu, which I tend to nickname lightning bolt lake. This area is an old area for pounamu collection and the stone from here is held as special.
    No wonder Peter Jackson chose that area for LOTR, it looks like a magical and special place, full of energies. Yeah concretion of shells, I've seen that too, so they must have been made in the same way pearls are made over time. But there has to be more to it with the Maori's history somewhere. Anyway, thanks for posting this.

Talk about real life Ents!




    Apart from the prior entry a few days or so ago, the only other thing I recall Moeraki Boulders being referred to somewhere, is as the marbles of the gods.
    Thanks for posting, Nothing...
    Those trees really look like the Ents! I had a look at Paradise photos as well from Google, it is very much like a paradise. On a funny note: a photo of a sign reading: "Paradise - No Exit".

    I love that story, Nothing.

    My nephew was fascinated by bugs growing up. He was at his grandparents' house in the back and saw an interesting bug which he bent over to look at. Just at that moment a golf ball went whizzing past his head. He would have been nailed if he hadn't moved to observe the bug.

    Birds are widely observed as a source of signs and omens. They're connected to something...,

    We are very luckey in NZ but the magic is everywhere, even upon a battlefield, a corporate outing, a film setting. Hearing stories or being involved in stories, that's magic also. Imagine people changing their mindset and being-seeing-feeling the magic that has always been around them every day of their lives. Yes we are blessed here in NZ, I remember Jose Arguelles saying he carried a map of NZ around in his pocket for over twenty years before he finally arrived here, he along with some of our elders knew that NZ was the last strong bastion of walked consciousness on Earth, to ruin, being first to see the light ( sun ), we also start lots of things/events/meme's lol. Bit homesick atm and now looking forward to heading back to Aetoaroa, ooopps, stay in the moment boy, cmon.
