I have my very own volcano on my doorstep. It is called Mt Eden or Maungawhau and it takes me 40 minutes return to walk from my house, to the base of the mountain, up to the top of the mountain and back. Not long at all.
Yep, my little life would be over in a heartbeat if it were to erupt.
Having a volcano in the ‘hood means that our soil is rich and the area really flourishes with green goodness.
So let’s celebrate this sleeping giant!
This Sunday is Love Your Mountain Day 2010. There will be guided walks and free entry into Eden Garden and Government House grounds. Sunday, December 12, from 10am to 4pm.
In past years there have been origami cranes and wishes strung up to a big tree. I think they might be able to use my origami crane skills. After folding 1000 cranes for our wedding, I like to think I’m somewhat an expert at folding.

p.s. I love you.
