With all that said and done, where I do begin with this series? Due to completely unforeseen circumstances, on the 1st of January, I found the place to live I have been searching for, for 5 long years. I am back in the bush where I belong and love to be, back to seeing grasshoppers on my beside stand, mantis in my bath and checking my slippers before I put them on to see there are no spiders or scorpions in it. Most of you will shudder at the thought of all this, but for me it is heaven. I now have to drive 1 ½ hours in the traffic to get to work or back whereas before it took me only five minutes, but the feeling of utter peace and tranquility I find when I get home, makes it all worthwhile.
On the day I moved it rained but it did not bother me. I now sit at my study window and look out on nothing but bush.
During the day and at night, I hear the lions and the zebra calling. This has to compare with the sweetest music in my ears.
The place is surrounded with mountains, not very high ones and one even has a cave which I can explore sometime and who knows what I will find in it.
There are miles and more miles I can walk around on and a river nearby which I have not been down to yet.
At night when I get home, the Blue Wildebeest or some other animal is laying in the road to the house and I stop to watch them.
