Santa’s new imposition

As if it isn’t enough that Santa has inserted himself into the Christmas story of the birth of Jesus, now Santa has imposed himself on the eucharist/holy communion  – at least here in NZ on the new Pack’n’Save supermarket billboards…

See what I mean

The old version – Da Vinci’s Christ at the Last Supper:

The new: Pack’n’Save’s Santa Last Supper, though I do not know which part of the eucharistic prayer has been reinterpreted as ’tis the season to be savey!

Totara Valley Overnight

Anne and I popped down to Totara Valley for an overnight trip – lawn-mowing and tree planting (as the planned work on the shack was thwarted by rain on Monday morning).

What was particularly marvellous was the late afternoon light and then the next day stunning almost overwhelming dawn before the rain set in.

Take a look…
