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!

Rain, rain and more rain

W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm

It has been raining solidly, every day, for over two weeks now and the landscape is saturated with water, forming large pans of water everywhere. Some days my rain gauge overflows, meaning more than 120mm in just a few hours! My chooks are bedraggled and wet, choosing the safety and dryness of the coop. While all this water is excellent for our ground water tables, it has caused massive flooding and damage in large parts of South Africa. I think we're getting a spin-off from all the ice storms and flooding in the Northern Hemisphere, because this is most unusual weather for us.



  1. We too have suffered rain for months, At last we have some sunshine. However if you live some where that relies on the rain for their needs it's a must. I'm just happy to see blue sky and some sunshine at the moment. Enjoy the weekend.

    1. No sunshine yet Barbara, rain still forecast for the next week. I AM grateful for the rain, our underground water table needs it desperately and my garden is smiling, but so much of it just uselessly floods through towns and disappears into the rivers on the way to the sea. Mother Nature is obviously doing her evolution thing and we have to adapt accordingly. Thanks for your visit and a lovely comment!
