2012 has had it all. Drama, hardship, joy, beauty, happiness, grief. Looking back, I realise how blessed I was during this time, and how thankful I am that it is almost past. Yet, to concentrate on the positives:
Rolbos was born, and we had a lot of fun at the bar
I visited ‘The Hell’, or Gamkaskloof, a wonderful, magical trip and a great place to camp
I live alone, something other people find hard to understand. This remains a constant source of gossip. Yet, I prefer my neighbours to be the quiet, mysterious type.
It was a privilege to witness the migration of thousands of Carmine Bee-eaters on the banks of the Zambezi
Africa is never without a smile, despite the politics – this is a fenced pool in the Okavango River (to keep the crocodiles out)
An elephant peeked around the bush, curious about what I was cooking on the fire.
A brand new addition to the family..
Mrs P had a birthday – and she is doing well. My visit with her is a highlight every week
And then, ther’s writing. Always writing…Check it out – click the picture…
So, as the sun sets on this year, I’m looking forward to a new one, filled with letters and words.
May 2013 bless you all with grace and kindness…
