Madras River INSPIRATION leads to motivation Standing on the banks of the Madras River in my early twenties left an indelible mark on my life. As I stood there, barely coping with the horrendous stench, my eyes were transfixed at what I saw on the banks on the other side. Small wooden huts. Not made up of wooden planks, but sticks and wooden boards and rubbish , all precariously balanced along the riverbanks.. People, families lived here! Now before going to India you are 1
FREE TO DREAM
dreams are free in NZ
mentally prepared for the poverty and chaos that surrounds the enigma of the beautiful country of India. But here I was shocked that whole families were living by the stench and filth. I couldn't take my eyes off the huts. I thought of my own hardships
as a child but it really struck me, even though I faced hardships as a child, as a kiwi kid I could still dream dreams! And dream I did! "When I grow up I 'm gonna be a cowgirl" then in
an another stage "I'm going to be a ballerina" and the dreams went on. The dreams kept me going. I could not fathom what kept the children on these river-
Contemplation banks going? They didn't have the luxury of dreams. Each day represented surviving for that day. I could not fathom not dreaming. So the Caterpillar Dreaming Jewellery Range represents the importance of all children being able to dream; and the picture of the caterpillar becoming a butterfly is a perfect representation of no matter who you are or what your circumstances, dreams can come true! Miracles like caterpillars becoming butterflys happen everyday!
