A right royal Wow!

Lorde won two Grammy awards last night. I am sure she would rate it as one of the biggest Wows in her seventeen years.

I take pleasure in her win because it puts New Zealand on the worldwide map – again. For a country with fewer people than most cities we do like to scramble to the top of the heap and wave our flag.

We are getting better at celebrating honest achievement, talent, dedication and hard work. The tall poppie syndrome is subsiding, gradually.

So Lorde, congratulations. May your head stay level on your shoulders. May you avoid the temptations of fame and money. May your life bring you satisfaction. May the people who surround you support you and care for you, not just your name and fortune.

Good on ya, girl!
