Nooks and crannies

Reactions: 



Malvacae growing amongst the ruins, I will have to find out what kind of ruin it was, either some farm or Boer War relic.


Amazing to see where some plants can grow, I took these one afternoon while hiking on one of the koppies near bloem. Glad to see that uploading from my pc to Blogger is soooo easy now, no flikR or other stuff needed.
Just need to figure out the layout and sort the image size.
Just as these plants seem to defy logic by growing in these austere places so it is with music, a gem is sometimes found in an unfamiliar place. The version of the following song done by Gregorian Masters of Chant is brilliant.
Hide and Seek - Howard Jones
There was a time when there was nothing at all
Nothing at all, just a distant hum
There was a being and he lived on his own
He had no one to talk to, and nothing to do
He drew up the plans, learnt to work with his hands
A million years passed by and his work was done
And his words were these...

Hope you find it in everything, everything that you see
Hope you find it in everything, everything that you see
Hope you find it, hope you find it
Hope you find me in you

So she had built her elaborate home
With it's ups and it's downs, its rains and its sun
She decided that her work was done, time to have fun
and she found a game to play

Then as part of the game
She completely forgot where she'd hidden herself
And she spent the rest of her time
Trying to find the parts

Hope you find it in everything, everything that you see
Hope you find it in everything, everything that you see
Hope you find it, hope you find it
Hope you find me in you

There was a time when there was nothing at all, nothing at all
Just a distant hum
"Life has its own hidden forces which you can only discover by living." Soren Kierkegaard (1813 - 1855)
