In Safe Hands

Left behind in minute concrete detail on the wall of the Havelock Hotel are a set hand prints left behind by New Zealand V8 SuperCar driver Greg Murphy. As I wandered further down Hutt street I also noticed drivers from the world of Formula One however his caught my attention.

Any high level motor sports competitor who has been winning events for more than twenty years deserves a special kind of respect. Not the least of which is either an innate sense of safety or some personal demon guardian angel. To still be alive, competing and smiling suggests an awareness of being safe above all risks.

I’m not really a motor sports fan by the way. I just like hand prints in walls.
