185 empty chairsA few blocks from Christchurch Cathedral, 185 white chairs stand empty in memory of the victims of the 22/2/11 earthquake. A silent, desert gathering.
Getting rid of damaged buildings creates room for green. And a lot of empty space.
The cliff is gone. The house, stays.
Sit down. Read. Live. Christchurch reimagined. A mix of pride and self-irony hanging on the toilet door.
Shopping goes on, thanks to containers pop up shops that keep the city spirit alive.
Before I die I want to fix Christchurch.
Circle of Poets. Meets every Saturday at 10:30 AM.When to the sessions of sweet silent thoughtI summon up remembrance of things past, I sigh the lack of many a thing I sought...But if the while I think on thee, dear friend,All losses are restor'd and sorrows end.Shakespeare, Sonnet 30
Live music and street art not far from the city Red Zone.
Planting seeds of the new city. The earthquake has pulled people together, making communities even more willing to help each other.
But first, coffee.Pop up shops to keep you caffeinated regardless of the quake.
Using debris to build anew. The earthquake is like a scar that the city proudly wears.I like that.
Rugby on. The city might be broken, but its rugby heart hasn't skipped a beat.

The area around the Cathedral has been sealed for safety reasons. This self-procalimed Prophet of Canterbury advocates for the opening of the Red Zone.
From behind the safety net. What's left of the Gothic Cathedral, pride of the city.
The new city iconic landscape is one of containers and roadworks, like a permanent, huge construction site.
The hill could still collapse. These work as a temporary containing wall.
Containers look better with street art.
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Keep up the love, scarred city.
