Here & Now

So, I spent ages typing this blog and uploading photos - alas the photos didn't upload (or so she thought....) Until I hit the preview button and there they were, just a big ol link of mad letters and numbers on this the editing page.... but they shine on the preview...?!?!? SO.... here's to hoping you see them shine!

After an incredible lunch with the Andizi family (and waaaaay to much food - I will deny this as one of my faults - it was, simply, too damned delicious) I drove home from the cooler valley of Ceres through the windy pass with a bag of naartjies as my companion, I thought again how lucky I am to be here. Don't get me wrong - I'm not only harping on about the cape - I think the same of most of the places I have lived... but it's a great thing when your eyes pick up the small things to be grateful for... don't ya think?

Happy Birthday Andizi, and Happy Living all....
"But you, children of space, you restless in rest, you shall not be trapped or tamed.
Your house shall be not an anchor but a mast.
It shall not be a glistening film that covers a wound, but an eyelid that guards the eye.
You shall not fold your wings that you may pass through doors, nor bend your heads that they strike not against a ceiling, nor fear to breathe lest walls should crack and fall down.
You shall not dwell in tombs made by the dead for the living.
And though of magnificence and splendour, your house shall not hold your secret nor shelter your longing.
For that which is boundless in you abides in the mansion of the sky, whose door is the morning mist, and whose windows are the songs and silent of night." (Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet)
