Through the eyes of Deb Wolfs- bauer, everything creates a sense. She has grown up immersed in a love of art and creativity. Deb has a wondrous eye for pre- cision, evident in her work as a graphic designer. Many busi- nesses throughout the Mana- watu had Deb's carefully co- ordinated and creative approach to highlighting and profiling their business point of difference. Her passion has always been the environment and she spends much of her time out- doors. Nature is her biggest influence and she embraces her love of the earth. Deb can be best described as one of those people that draw energy from having her feet firmly planted on the ground. The Earth is a living breath- ing entity -- our world, our land, our love,'' she says. Deb gains strength and takes ideas from everything around her. Nature is her muse and she is happy expressing herself with her paintings. Her colours are vibrant and bold. She manages to feel the playfulness and movement and transfers this energy into her paintings as she brings them to life. She also manages to evoke all the senses in her work. As well as painting she also sculpts, working with wood, stone, concrete and wire. Viewing her work may suggest a touch, a smell, a sound that will remind you of the enchantment of the world around us. This is her debut solo exhibition and all her work will be for sale. It will be like taking a piece of life home with you, continu- ally re-affirming the bountiful beauty of the creatures that inhabit New Zealand,'' she says. A Bird in the Hand, November 26 and 27, 10am till 4.30pm, at Shona Rubery Designs Studio, 67 East St, Feilding. Well-stoked story of war Danger Close By Dave Hayward Self-published $30 Reviewed by John Myers In an army world of officers and men, Feilding's Dave Hayward retired as top man -- Sergeant Major of the Army -- after a 33-year infantry career from the Malayan emergency'' to the Indonesian confrontation'' and the Vietnam war. He has an understandably personal take on soldiering, and Danger Close is his second experience-based novel. His first, Point of the Spear, concern- ing rising young Corporal John Barr in Malaya, was full of youthful exuber- ance for his work and for a planter's daughter. It was a good read in the Innes- McLean thriller style and Dave Hay- ward modestly admits its 300 print run made a little pocket money -- in itself no mean feat. Danger Close has a much more experienced and thoughtful, middle- aged John Barr at its centre, company sergeant major of Zulu Company, based at Nui Dat, Vietnam, alongside the Aussies as part of an Anzac bat- talion. He's on a 12-month tour of duty while the planter's daughter, Patricia, looks after their four children in the Malayan base camp of Terendak. There are parallel stories here, of Barr's life on the frontline, a continu- ing struggle against environment and enemy while battling for a fair go from the Australian command Zulu company operates under and from Kiwi politicians gone all wobbly over the small, but vociferous, anti-Vietnam war movement at home. The tale climaxes with the Tet offensive of 1967. The second part of the story focuses on the lives of the wives and children at Terendak, handling their own sometimes fright- ening problems while remaining faith- ful to absent husbands. Yes, Danger Close is a homage to soldiers and their families. At times that's laid on fairly thick -- one of the pillars of the sergeant major's role is to ensure that everybody knows he/she's appreciated -- but the action and atmosphere created by Hayward stays well-stoked throughout. The modern temptation to luridly overstate nasty things is held in check, but there's no doubt as to exactly what's happening. The book is certainly worth the read -- as a thriller, as a record of the atti- tudes of the day, and as a record of how Kiwi infantrymen conducted their role in the Vietnam war. Danger Close is available at firstname.lastname@example.org, and during Saturday's book launch at Pop- pies Bookstore in Feilding.
