A Cape sunset
After a blustery day, the Cape said goodbye with a spectacular sunset.
The sun lights up the mountain from the West while mist softens Table Mountain's silhouette.
It is true that one can never really cast off one's roots, and this image of Table Mountain taken from my brother's front garden is one reason why I will always be tied to the Cape. I left Cape Town not knowing when or if I will have the opportunity to return in this life, but I will never really leave the Cape, for it is a very large part of me.
No matter where I have wandered - and I have visited five out of seven continents - this is always the place that calls. Strange, really, since I left it when I was a bare 2 years of age and have only been back to visit it for brief periods since. Many places I have visited have felt good, many feel comfortable, many even feel homey - but this is, I suppose, where my my roots are, still.
I shall return; I simply do not know when.
