Y: Yes to Change
‘I imagine that yes is the only living thing’ – e.e. cummings
I returned home from Botswana this past Saturday; my US friends began their return home on Wednesday night. Only yesterday did I note that my orchids on my patio are beginning to bud and a few are showing blossoms (I’m sure it’s way too early). They weren’t showing any signs when I left on the 16th April. I went walking yesterday afternoon around my neighbourhood and delighted in the magnificent trees of rich and vibrant colour.
The seasons are changing from summer to autumn to winter, and nature keeps on showing us her beauty. Yes! I say, and thank you!
Yes! that I could take another photo of the fish eagle on a dead branch at sunset.
And in the first days of our bundu bashing I snapped a photo of a different baobab in all her glory in the pulsating sunlight.
Another photo of an elephant taken while I was sitting outside my tent, on my side of the river .. I heard nothing, suddenly it was there …
I wish I knew how to upload some of the videos I took of elephant and hippo in the water gallumphing, wallowing, spouting, playing.
Yes! to all the different views of nature, changing all the time. Yes! to my beautiful orchid buds, photo taken this morning, even if it is too soon. Yes! to the bee who’s buzzing around in my study –
And Yes! to all of you who’ve accompanied me in this A-Z blog challenge, I’ve so appreciated it. Thank you!
Z tomorrow – I have some lovely photos of zebra which I’ll put up. They all look the same but they really are different to each other.
