Nature's comfort

This morning I felt utterly sad. I've lost someone whom I thought I could count as my friend of many years. But when I needed him, on a personal level, he proved me wrong. And it hurts.


I looked outside my window and I saw a Roe Deer buck approaching. Despite everything I grabbed the camera and went outside. The Buck came closer and closer while looking straight at me. When he reached our driveway he stopped and posed, perfectly framed by the old oak trees that line the path. Maybe a silly thing to say but it was as if Nature was trying to comfort me with its beauty. And it worked. It always works...


I'm going to say goodbye now for a short time. For 2 weeks, the beautiful Mala Mala Game Reserve in South Africa will be our home. Here you can find an impression of last year's visit. I know from experience that Mala Mala is the best place to be to recover from a hurt soul..
