Sir Peter Blake Killed

Not only was I struck with a personal sense of loss when I got the news of Sir Peter Blake's death, it also put my professional life in crisis mode since I am responsible for www.blakexpeditions.com. The site has required a lot of customization and monitoring since then and has pretty much consumed my life up until Christmas.

Thanksgiving in Devonport

Trude and I hosted a Thanksgiving celebration at our house. We invited the expat Americans we knew and stuffed ourselves with a traditional turkey feast.

12 September 2001 (11 September in the USA)

I heard the news while walking to the office at 7:00. We all spent the day on the web keeping up with events. I was holding up reasonably well until I got home and saw the images on the TV news, at which point I broke down and cried. The world had changed for the worse.

Wayne Roberts Memorial Service

Attended the memorial service for Wayne Roberts. It was an emotional afternoon for those of us who loved him. The service was held in his boat building shed set amongst the bush in Parekura Bay, Bay of Islands, New Zealand. To me, Wayne always embodied the best of what it means to be a Kiwi. His insistance that all undertakings must have passion, grace and romance at the core continues to be an inspiration for me.
