Saturday morning. Being a tourist in Christchurch
I started my Saturday morning off by listening to Kim Hill interviewing Sarah Shieff" about her new book 'Letters of Denis Glover.' "Quardle oodle ardle wardle doodle" - many New Zealanders know Denis Glover as the author of the iconic poem "The Magpies". But there are better ones of the mountains such as Arawata Bill and the series in Sings Harry. No one writes about the mountains better than Glover. I met him in 1973 and was smart enough to get him to sign his latest book.
