It is already 6 months into the year, and I have not left South Africa. Wow! I cannnot remember when last that happened in a looooong time. I am quite enjoying it though, and Cape Town has been kind thus far. This is good. I am putting my head down and concentrating on my art for now. The gypsy me staying put in one place for once and it feels salutary. My plan is working and I haven’t died yet or got cabin fever. My mind is wondering if I will still survive the deep of the winter, come August and September. maybe I will give myself a lil birthday present again this year and end up somewhere. But for now it is beneficial. It will take something rather special or honorable to get me on the move again.
