Featured Wind Phone ~Temuka, New Zealand

There is a unique story behind each Wind Phone that is best told by its creator and/or steward. No one can tell it the way they can, so to that end, the format for Featured Wind Phone stories is to share the creator/steward's responses to the interview questions verbatim in their own voice. Sharing our stories helps us to connect and heal and may inspire someone else to create or visit a Wind Phone.

This week's Featured Phone is in Temuka, South Canterbury, New Zealand; Vivien created this beautiful Wind Phone in memory of her mom Mary Leslie. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous Wind Phone with us. 


Where is your Wind Phone located?

Temuka, South Canterbury, New Zealand

48 Milford Clandeboye Road

Temuka 7920,

New Zealand

The Wind Phone is located opposite Temuka Cemetery in the Allen Jones Walkway.


What year and month did you place your Wind Phone at this location?

October 2023

Why did you choose this location?

My mum’s plaque is at this cemetery. It’s a nice area in the trees to look across to the cemetery and talk to your loved ones.  

Is your Wind Phone dedicated or in memory of someone special?

Mary Leslie, my mum who died in 2001. Inspired by the reading The Phone Box at the Edge of the World by Laura Imai Messina.

Do you have any advice for someone thinking of creating a Wind Phone?

If you make one, know that it is sacred, and you will feel that through the process.


I'd love to feature your phone! You can find all the information here to submit your Wind Phone.
