At the moment, the nation seems to be slowing down in preparation for the Christmas "Holidays". Coupled with this are all sorts of unsettling public happenings:
* there's the posturing by political leaders in preparation for the ANC elective conference at Mangaung;
* there's the industrial action by refuse collectors, which has left our suburbs reeking (uurrrgh!),
* there's the news that corruption is getting worse.
* there's COSATU marching to slow down our highways in protest against the e-Toll system

It's beautiful! (The photo doesn't do it justice!)
But what do I do with it now? Sell it? Keep it?
I always experience a sense of loss when I have to say good-bye to one of my creations (if they're not going to someone I know). (Anyone else experience this?). I question my ability to make another one just as beautiful...one day ...when I have grandchildren ...and the need arises? Practically, however, I think I should sell it. Get some money in...make a new one...

Sending lots of love to you all,
