About me

Gender FEMALE
Occupation Public Health Physician
Location Dunedin, New Zealand
Introduction I began blogging just after entering my second half-century. This is one of those random-personal-thoughts type blogs, rather than setting out to move and shake the world. I sometimes feel that eclectic is my middle name. So visitors here are likely to find reflections on: my ongoing faith formation in the reformed tradition (currently Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand); justice and poverty; knitting; family; food; exercise; and many other seemingly random connections. I live in Dunedin, New Zealand with my husband and have three adult children. I was born in New Zealand, lived in Sydney Australia for 8 years from 2007 and have now returned to my homeland where I engage in child health and wcellbeing research.

Your pajamas have duckies on them. Why did you switch from choo-choos?

I like living things with small carbon footprints
