I took the photo on my 40th birthday. 40 years ago.
How time does go by.
Water under the bridge.

The strange little door (lead, pewter, zinc? I don't know) was looking for its place.
Perfect to conceal and protect. And a good fit for the box.
When the Form 7 students at the Collage finally left school I asked them if they'd give me the pencil cases they'd made in Form 1 Woodwork classes.
After 7 years of being battered, scribbled on, painted and scratched, they've been treasures for me.
Dale's studio can be found at Puniho,
Surf Highway, Coastal Taranaki, New Zealand
