The other day, Mandy Barker was on TV promoting her new fashion line. The former black sticks women’s hockey team captain, has made good growth since I was in the USA, slogging it out during the GFC years. When I googled her fashion line, up came her artworks (quite a lot) on the theme of Ocean garbage.
As it’s a topic firmly on her mind, and as one of my two Maori Iwi have large ocean territories to look after, the artworks kind of found sync with my way of thinking as a Kiwi.
What can we do to reduce Ocean garbage in the world is the quetion that Mandy’s artwork raises as a globally conscious New Zealand citizen.
[Thanks for the message as an artist as a topic to mull over some more].

Wearing a “spidey saves the day – like a boss” tee shirt, witness David Casper piped up on cam to give his account for cameras too.
In serious aspects of the massacre, 50 people are in hospital. 11 still critical. 12 dead. The 5’11 Holmes, was said to be a quiet soccer player, University student. Ray Kelly, Marissa Randazo and Kaitlyn Fonzi, Alex and Tom Sulliven all commented to cam. Chris Ramos talked of surviving the experience, wishing for a moment of “washing away the fear, the dirt and the blood on their skin, okay?”
A young brotha who needs to enrol in NASA asap as he’s so smart, who helped people in the theater was described as a reluctant hero. “I don’t want to say hero,” he denies. “I was in the wrong place at the right time. The wrong place as I had to deal with the situation. The right time, as I was there to help the family.” Well said. (more…)
