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!

Soaring fire

Just a quick hello and to let you know I'll  be back (soon!) Moving house from one end of the world to the other (OK, from one Province to another, but it seems like the other side of the world to me!) is very disruptive and a year later I'm only just starting to find my feet. Not all just because of the move, other factors have also played a part, but suffice it to say that my muse seems to be popping around more and more often these days and my paint brushes are getting more alluring by the day.

And here's a little piece of wisdom for today...

A quick little practice to get a feel for the paints again... Soaring Fire That Sweeps And Sings - a scene often seen on our smallholding in Gauteng



  1. "Just a quick hello and to let you know I'll be back (soon!)" - Good News!!

    1. Thanks Liz, G-mail has been amiss in sending me messages!

  2. So happy to hear your art is emerging again in your new space. Hope you soon feel completely at home there. Reading your garden and art blogs has lifted me out of myself and my little world here in Oregon to savor the so-different everyday colors and textures of a place with opposite seasons. It's been delightful! I wish you all the best and hope to get a sense of your new scene, Cheryl

    1. Thanks a lot for your encouraging words Cheryl! As I replied above, Google has been amiss in notifying me of comments. will have to have a word with them!
