Perched on a steep, wooded hillside about 60km west of Dunedin, in a South Island rainforest, New Zealand, is a village called Waipori Falls Village. The "reflections" in this volume were inspired by the author's acquisition of a house in the splendid isolation of this remote village surrounded by a scenic reserve. In Waipori the author and his old friend and colleague Dr. Garrett Evans could reflect upon life, on their experiences in different parts of the world where they had lived. This is followed by the author's reflections back in Clashnessie, his home in the Highlands of Scotland, followed by his reflections during the summer of 2008, which he spent at his home in Nova Scotia. The book, which encompasses the three locales, constitutes, in effect, a "trilocation" portmanteau! All the reflections, wherever they are set, were inspired by his time in Waipori, which began the whole process. Also included are a number of articles by John Kelly, being memories of the early days in Waipori Falls Village, at the time when the hydro-electric scheme was being constructed in the valley.
