Coriolistic Anachronisms


Return to Cape Agulhas

South of all things African, there remains only ocean

For our most recent yearly trip to South Africa, I could only afford two weeks away from work. We decided to invest four days on a short road trip, a mini-adventure, to grieve, empty our minds and recharge mostly depleted batteries. The target was a minuscule place…

Bo-Kaap Colors and Sounds

Marie and I follow a street celebration through the urban kaleidoscope formally known as the Malay Quarters in Cape Town

Our dearest Estorbo, best friend and third leg of the tripod, sails on to the Undying Lands

I will post more about that exceptional cat when I have pieced my heart together. For now, I’ll again let Tolkien do the talking, it’s so much easier. Marie and I just left our kitty at the Haven, bound for the Undying Lands with the Elves,…
