Happy New Year from Aotearoa
Bethells Beach/Te Henga, West Auckland
The very first folks to greet the New Year will be the good people of Kahuitara Point
on Pitt Island in the Chatham Islands. Along with them and others as diverse as the Fijians in Suva and the Far East Russians of the Kamchatka Peninsula, we live just to the left of the International Date Line
and so will be the first Metroblog city to greet the dawn of the new year. A few hours later, Melbourne
will pick up the baton and so it will continue for 50 cities around the globe until Hawaii
greet the dawn and the circle is completed.
May the coming year bring more peace, less strife, more compassion and less conflict to the peoples of the world. If you make just one resolution this year, may it be to make a difference.
Happy New Year!
