Making rough paths smooth.

I’m a driver and a rider. I love driving on our roads, exploring new routes, and wish I could do the same on a motorbike, but for now those days are behind me.
Watching the network of roads around Hamilton develop has been interesting. When we arrived 17 years ago much of it was only pipe dream stuff but now it is becoming a reality, and watching the city grow.
I’m also conscious of how that spread is using up good pastureland and that fits in with the Christian World Service Christmas Appeal theme of “My place to till and keep” reflecting on land grabbing policies that are affecting the lives of people that partner agencies work for and on behalf of. We blithely see land as a commodity and I think we as urban dwellers don’t really appreciate the link between people and their land.
