It has again been weeks since I last posted – and a year of very erratic posting on this blog. I just wanted to check in with regular readers and let you all know I’m still here.
This year has been a very tough one for me health-wise, so it has been really difficult to keep up with regular postings. My blog has always been my “happy place”, somewhere I share the things that interest, amuse and inspire me. A place which I don’t want to populate with negative thoughts or negative energy. I have a lot of topics on my list which I still want to share with you all, but am struggling to find the energy and ability to do them justice. So I’d rather take my time instead of publishing posts which I’m not happy with.
So what am I working on?
I’m currently editing photographs which a friend shared with me after his recent vacation on the Cape West Coast and in the Karoo. He’s taken lots of wonderful photos, and it has been very difficult choosing my favourites to feature on my blog.
Then during this year I have also read several books which I especially enjoyed and want to share my thoughts about.
This year we didn’t manage to make our usual pilgrimage to the Kalahari. I thought I’d be fine skipping a year (and I didn’t feel well enough to go on a long road trip anyway). But when September came, my thoughts often turned to our last Kalahari trip. There are several posts that I never got around to writing for the Kalahari 2012 series, which I still want to publish.
In the meanwhile I’ll leave you with two of Karl-Heinz’s photographs. Looking at these makes me happy!
