Hearing the silence on a good day

Reactions: 

Today, Spring Day in the southern hemisphere by the way, KatieB, myself and B had a mini adventure, we had a picnic at Soetdoring game reserve, not much game was seen but we were able to hear the silence out in the wilds...We did see a lot of Guinea fowl and a few buck, plenty plovers and an eagle as well as a hawk, most were too fast for the camera... drat. Some of the smallest things amazed us as well, there was this beetle, about the size of a full stop that had the most iridescent colour. Truly amazing how even the smallest creature was able to show the wonder of nature.
We also heard other noises in the bush but decided to let whatever was making the ruckus do it in peace...
The food was also excellent even though I say so myself, nothing beats dining alfresco in nature.
So I say thank you to my co adventurers for taking me away from the rush of the city to the peace of the veld, next time the Lion enclosure will hopefully be open and we can get some pictures of the mighty beasts...
Driving back Matt White's song Best Days was playing and I realised that we are living some of the best days of our lives, even with all the glitches and accidents. It is an attitude... and may this be the best September ever. I could not find a video with Matt but this one is quite well done and at least you can hear the song...

Best Days - Matt White

Every time I look at you
You always look so beautiful
Driving on the road again

And I would take some photographs
So I can dream of you

Can't say I've felt such a twisting in my heart this
way
We get sleeping while you stay awake
so close to you

Do you believe
In love at first sight
I think you do
We're lying naked under the covers
Those are the best days of my life

Can't take away those times
We stayed in bed and talked all night
Chain smokes of cigarettes and
Three bottles of red wine
Falling asleep together
Holding your body close to mine

Oh and in the morning
Your eyes opened so innocent
The sun is blazing we are sweating
You look lovely
Nothing else matters and you're
In my arms again

Do you believe
In love at first sight
I think you do
We're lying naked under the covers
Those are the best days of my
Those are the best days of my
Those are the best days of my life

Oh I never wanna be without you
So just stay with me
I will love you endlessly

Oh darling, darling
Those are the best days of my
Those are the best days of my life

Do you believe
In love at first sight
I think you do
We're lying naked under the covers
Those are the best days of my life
Those are the best days of my
Those are the best days of my
Those are the best days of my life
Not much to add after that...
"Make the best use of what is in your power, and take the rest as it happens." Epictetus (55 AD - 135 AD)
