pink city

View Studying in Auckland on ctamler's travel map.

it's breast cancer awareness month. they've lit up the skytower for the occasion:


(i didn't take that picture, by the way.)

the other night on the way to parnell, kirstin and i encountered hordes of pink-clad people. most of them, actually, were dressed as pink fairies. we witnessed one catch her wing on a street lamp. we'd forgotten about bca month, so we asked a pack of fairies (flock of fairies? gaggle of fairies? ring of fairies?) what they were doing. some bca 5k walk in the domain.

we passed through the domain. floodlights all gelled pink. fairies flitting to and fro. costume contest. a pink inflatable arch. pink fireworks. we lugged our case of steinlager and i wished i was doing something. my aunt just found out she has breast cancer. i sent her a card today. it seems weak, like watery tea. they caught it early, so fingers crossed, she'll be ok.

Cory, It's Aunt Laurie. I had my surgery and am doing great. Got your card and it made me feel really good. The bca month tower was an amazing coincidence. You can skype me now whenever you want too. Love you!
