I am not going to regale you with long lists of what to do and what not to so as there are so many people who know better. I am a positive person but found that in the last few days I was in a head-spin of 'What-ifs'?

After making the decision to temporarily close the s...

As I write this, rain is pelting on the tin roof of our study. The sounds transport me back to our home in Magaliesburg where the old farm house sheltered us safely even in the strongest of storms. Having lived my whole life in the Highveld storms hold no terror for me...

David and I had a wonderful 2 weeks in the Kruger staying 3 nights each in 4 camps: Berg-en-Dal, Letaba, Bateleur Bush camp and Talamati Bush camp. In each area we experienced sightings ranging from leopard, fighting lions, wild dog, many rhino and majestic elephants a...

To family and friends

Here we are, well on the way to our 51st year of marriage after having had a year filled with small vignettes of happiness and joy. We travelled to various game reserves, to the Kwa-Zulu Natal coast, the Kgalagadi, back to the Kruger, down to Rose...

No, this is not a complete heart-pouring out post, but simply a few reflections of 2019.

I cannot believe how time has rushed on since our days in the Bush. We've had numerous end of year celebrations, completing projects and learning skills for another time.

How many projects, books, creative pieces did you actually complete in 2019?

A friend of mine and I...

The transition to Summer seems to happen overnight. One moment the windows are firmly shut against the chill, the next they're wide open to allow the warm breeze to filter through rooms where air hangs heavy with heat.

We were fortunate to visit the Kruger Park for Baro...

We're back home after a really good time away compounded by the fact that in the Tankwa Karoo there is no connectivity, vast vistas of beautiful scenery and...silence. Arriving back to Johannesburg was an assault to the senses but saved by the fact we were in our own h...

We have had a few really chilly days this month - with heavy (much needed) rains in the Cape and snow in Southerland and other parts of the country it has been a stay at home to be warm time. The good thing is that there is time to sit and complete projects, brain-stor...

We've just celebrated the winter Solstice and while I appreciate that winter is a time for rest and recovery in nature and perhaps even ourselves, I so look forward to the warm, hot days of summer. But in the meantime we can snuggle into warmed beds or sit near flicker...
