Generosity and Wisdom

I am so in awe of Patricia Grace, Witi Ihimaera and Haare Williams after attending Tui Tui Tuhia - a wānanga for Māori writers. They are all so lovely and open about their experiences as writers. Gems of wisdom and advice tumbled from their lips as we were invited to ask questions. Haare wrote a poem - Wit and Grace - an apt title for the uber-successful pair. Softly spoken, uplifting

and humble, these trailblazers still give up their weekends to impart their knowledge to the following generations. Thank you from all of us.

It is phenomenal - I kid you not. I am Co-chairing the Interim Komiti of Te Kaituhi Māori. I actually had breakfast with Patricia, get to speak to Witi all the time, had a beautiful Karakia from Haare this morning. Sometimes, I pinch myself because it makes the mahi worthwhile.
