It was easy to see Susan back in the sun, her other lover, a summer lover who warms caresses and heals her soul from the long winter. A lover for whom I feel no jealousy, only admiration. The summer sun comes for a short, few months in the UK and then with contradictions.
It is our first BBQ of this fledgling summer and I glance back at the interior of the house and realise I have not vacuumed the carpets for at least two weeks. The spring BBQ fire calls, those unique BBQ smells, aromas and the carpet will have to wait.
Russell is driving 1000 miles and remembering the drives of the past. Nelspruit, Bloemfontein – where I went to school, Winburg – I passed it to and from school, Warden, Colesburg, Allermanskraal – created for the white's and named for everyone, everyone being white. Allermanskraal meaning everyone's home. Then on to Kruger and a welcome shower, a tall glass of their best red wine before drifting into a slumber of achievement. A journey of Adventura, of adventure.
Ps. Has Gary sold his house? Is Lily painting again? So many questions, so few answers.
