A spy in my rich emotional life

Posted in Te Wahi Ora News

I was in a canoe on the Whanganui River in 1969 when I recognized how really Melancholic I actually was! A group of us were reading perhaps the only pop-psychological book available in those days – The Four Types : the Sanguine, the Coleric, the Phlegmatic And the Melancholic. Why it took the Whanganui River, 15 6th form girls, a trailer of luggage, food and tents and a never ending supply of river-rapids, to bring this epiphany about is another story!
