Peace and Love

It's on my mind like breathing. You don't think about it until you can't do it.
It's something deep within like the blood in my veins. It is always there just below the surface. So necessary and so vital that life does not exist without breath or blood.
Southern Africa, from Cape Town to Johannesburg and everywhere in-between made its mark on me in ways that will never leave, I am branded forever.
The scenic ride from Cape Town to the Cape Point with a stop to see the penguins, amazing vistas and the stunning beauty along the way on a beautiful day becomes part of the many memories to seal in my mind.
The amazing dunes of Soussevlei that change with the light from the sun as it moves swiftly across the sky resembles a jigsaw puzzle and I can recall that when I close my eyes.
The many lovely people I met along the way touched my soul deeply.
All this is just the tip of the iceberg and the tip is equally important as what lies below the surface. The tip of the iceberg is the warning, the chance to know there is something more just below the surface. There is always something more. In this case the amazing animals.
The animals remind me that there is a natural order to life. They live with purpose, have a sense of family and enhance the environment.
I loved that reminder of what is right and what is good in the world and I will try to tap into that everyday, even if it is just for a few minutes.
If I can just close my eyes and recall the moments, everyday will be a better day.
