Last night I got to bed later than usual for a work day and struggled a bit to get up, make coffee and get into the shower. While in the shower my mind can wander: from the previous day and night to the day of work lying ahead…. And then early this morning a phone call from Mom: “Your uncle passed away…”
It is Easter (Pascha) today. I do not think I should go into the Religious and Pagan side of it. Nor the celebration of Spring or the Sun(Fire) in the Northern hemisphere. Or the Pickled fish and Hot-Cross buns or Bunny rabbits hiding Chocolate Eggs…
It was very quiet while I was getting ready for work. Because of the public holiday there was not the usual sound of traffic outside or the chatter of the builders next door to be heard. Just the wind.…Outside my window a leaf caught the morning sun and its shadows caught my eye. By the time I got my camera and my settings right the sun had moved and the scene had changed…
About 20years ago on my uncle’s birthday I wrote something on his birthday card along the lines of: At the end make sure the response you get is…”Bloody good show mate, bloody good show!” Sometime early this morning the lights in the theater changed. The curtains went down. And I will definitely stand up and say: “Boeta, bloody good show, bloody good show!”
Don’t miss any moment in life. The scene keeps changing.
