Hout Bay, Cape Town

My favourite spot at Hout Bay in the Western Cape. I used to drive out in the middle of the working day to spend a few hours under a tree overlooking this beautiful area. I miss it…especially with the clutter these days. I could use a few days under that tree, if not a month…


As resilient as I may feel at times, there are moments when it feels as if I’m about to crumble. Being an idealist is tiring. It raises expectations that the pragmatist in me convinces me is practically achievable, if only…and it’s that ‘if only’ that always sets me up for a whole lot of hurting….
