Just lovely. Lovely. Lovely, Naomi. Thanks for posting extra pictures … and that simple, sweet poem. I like it. A lot. It’s like opening a box of rare sweets, but no calories.

The treasure that you brought me today is gratitude.

With your photos of blossoms, I remember and appreciated Marc’s guiding indulgence. He’d stop the jeep so I could jump out to photograph some colourful little flower even though he was on the trail of the Black Rhino family or the Wild Dog. (I understand the name has been changed.)

Wasn’t Nietzsche a wise individual? He reminds me of why we have friends. Like you, Naomi. Pivotal and poignant connections.


Naomi September 17, 2010 at 4:30 pm

What a wonderful comment, thank you, Amy! You’re a friend among friends 🙂

It’s lovely to receive all of you ladies’ appreciation here. Dave’s verdict on the post was ‘Oh, a girly one.’ 😀 I remember his and Marc’s tolerance on the game drives, with some amusement!
