Contradictions in Perception
Those times when you have so much to say
but the distractions of the beauty surrounding you intrude so heavily on your focus.
Today is exquisite weather. I’m sitting on top of the mountain in Hout Bay with views across the entire valley across to the back of Table Mountain across towards Llandudno. The vista is nothing short of breath taking. I do pinch myself daily.
With this beautiful view out front at the rear is the opposite effect. The wall dividing the rich from those who want to take from them. A divide that doesn’t provide much in security when the intent to do harm has become so overwhelming that few can control their actions. Anger, resentment and fear in a hopeless situation is culminating in prisons for those who’s lives have led them into a privileged environment. Needless to say all have put in many hours hard work to reward themselves with luxury.
We’ve recently had days and nights of rain which the earth so desperately needs.
Humans I’m sure are suffering from floods. (I keep myself locked away from bad news – my soul can’t take the pressure)
I always feel I’m not doing enough. So I strive to just do that little bit more. That’s the bit that usually leads me into problems. However, I believe this time It’s that added push, last drive for the ideal outcome that’s going to make this entire program do what it’s supposed to do.
My patience has paid off. [that which I exercised]
The views are breathtaking. Truly beyond spectacular. Sadly what lies behind is tension, stress, fear, anxiety. The pipe track. A man trodden track leading from the IY settlement in Hout Bay through a winding path behind the privileged properties ensconced in tall walls and electrified fences.
Sitting against this pipe track during times of extreme anxiety, hopelessness and frustration has been journey of shear terror to calm acceptance of what is will be.
Too many times the alarm has been set off. Too many times the threats of violence emanate from the dogs who’s warning barks echo across the valley bouncing around the walls of mountains like never ending warnings of threats to our safety and that of our families. Tension. Stress. Panic. Fear.
Four things I and millions want to live without going forward.
That is our deepest wish. I know. I’ve spoken to them all.
We all want the same thing.
