Harv's Blog

‘To observe without evaluation is the highest form of Intelligence’
– Jiddu Krishnamurti –

One of the wonderful benefits of my vocation is being able to hang out with any number of the cool people that represent the 75 industries and professions that is the CQ community. This exposes me to a huge range of opinions and ideas that stimulate my imagination and thinking.

The purpose of this Blog is to take some of that thinking, refine it, and put it out there to stimulate dialogue on topics that I care about. I’m not precious so if you do not agree, or have differing views, I want to hear them.

I will be inviting other writers to contribute, so if you want to join me, let me know please at harv@c-q.co.nz

Why Outward Bound is relevant for Old Bastards too

September 29, 2017

I was asked recently why I would have participated at CQ’s recent Outward-Bound excursion – what could someone of my mature years (ahhhh) get out of it?


Sad but (un)true?

August 29, 2017

Who is perpetuating the idea that high numbers of Farmers are regularly killing themselves in this country? This troubles me.
