Hello my name is Matisse. I am a Journalist by trade. A Campaigner by occupation. An Activist by choice. A Blonde Fijian by heritage. A Cyclone by personality. A Dreamer by soul.

A Daughter, a Sister, a Mother, a Friend, a Partner by day. And night.

A Fierce Child of Paradise.

Little Disclaimer: I work for Greenpeace… I love reposting their content because all 6ft 1 of me, stands tall and proud behind the organisation’s values.  Independence. Creative confrontation. And a vision for a green and peaceful future.

BUT this is my blog. This is a diary of my journey.  It doesn’t always represent the opinions of Greenpeace. After all, Greenpeace, like the world, is made up of lots of different people with lots of different opinions. And I’m just one of them.

This is my personal eternal quest to help deliver peace from the hearts of humans to the heart of the world.

I pray to God I do not define…. That one day we may eradicate everything from poverty, depression, greed, unsustainable development, animal cruelty to loneliness.

And that we save our earth  … and the essence of ourselves.

Peace by Piece.

 “Heart and Earth are the same thing baby girl. It’s just how you rearrange the letters.”

Laugh, Love and Be A Force To Be Reckoned With!   xxx Matisse

    Hi Matisse, We are still showing the dogs – off to Melbourne in November for the National Dachshund Show – we won t in Brissie in 2009. Havent been to aths for over twelve months. Joan fell and broke her hip three years a ago and had to have hip replacement which has restricted her a bit. Now that we are in the “70’s” we have had to slow down a bit.
    What are you doing with youself in Sydney, still modelling? I have listened to your songs and read your writings – looks like journalism has paid off for you.
    Look after yourself

    Hi Mati, Just for fun I have nominated you for a Sunshine Award. http://silkannthreades.wordpress.com/2012/11/23/397/
    If you are wondering who is this, think sister of uncle originally from Christchurch. Your blog is full of sunshine. Keep on writing. You don’t have to accept the award.
