About me

This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realise it is play. The only thing that is ultimately real about your journey is the step that you are taking at this moment. That’s all there ever is. I’m here to tell you that the path to peace is right there, when you want to get away. When you are present, you can allow the mind to be as it is without getting entangled in it. If you miss the present moment, you miss your appointment with life. That is very serious!

Winter with a vengeance

Winter has hit us here in South Africa with a vengeance and it's snowing in many parts of the country. Last night we experienced -6℃ and all the bird baths and water bowls had a quarter inch thick ice on top. I'm sure if it snowed here in Tarlton it wouldn't be this cold...



  1. You are a wonderful reminder that other parts of the world are experiencing something entirely different than the warmth that surrounds me now.

    Beautiful light on your snow.

    1. That's what is so wonderful about the internet Elva, we see all the seasons in one day! thanks for the visit!

  2. WINTER is cold! Enjoy a warm cuppa soup tonight! Nice painting Maree.

    1. Thank you Liz, that soup sounds wonderful!
