Rocky terrain of the Magaliesberg includes thousands of secluded corners that invite like home. Many important conversations are conducted here, where the troubles of the world are left behind or at least don’t dominate, the mind free to focus and create.
Some of these conversations are conducted inwardly without partners present. Some details of what was concluded may be forgotten or deliberately discarded, to redo the exercise for confirmation in the familiar setting of everyday living. Some thought or talk outcomes are washed down by beer or wine and lost forever or warped, for misconception (even Miss Conception?) is ever around.
Homely spots associated with a sense of safety invite all types. Even the dangers hiding from society’s “light of day” will find refuge here; and look around. Vagrant, snake, leopard and whatever else make up the world have to eat.
Nature invites them all, embraces them all, let them play and live and die. Everyone and everything coming here is welcome… at each other’s expense. For this is not civilised society. Every item is still part of nature’s useful stock of ingredients, although a camera might hang around its neck.
