Lunar Eclipse in the Congo

And so it begins…. the moon, with mars in close company …

The Red Moon emerges…. next to the Red Planet …

The morning after …as the moon sets across the African Sky ….

 

Colours of the Congo – Sunrise

Sunrise at 06:00 this morning, was just so beautiful here in the Southern DRC, light breeze blowing, a crisp cool morning with absolutely gorgeous colours …

Voices

Sitting alone on a remote site, in my small tent for the night, cold outside. No contact all alone, after a while it gets a tad claustrophobic, no matter how wide the horizon.

 

voices, I hear voices

who is that

that still small voice

sounds so familiar

oh, it’s just me



starting to sound distant

I’ll just keep calling

hoping against hope

that the door opens

to where?



at last it opens

but wait, there is no one there

that still small voice

chasing me away

saying begone



no solace

walls close in

horizon stretches beyond

longing for contact

 that human touch

at last

….

oh, it’s just me

Moments of Introspection

Been silent for awhile, still writing furiously and embroiled with emotion. Here are a few quotes that have drawn me into different places.

 

Storms of The Congo

Last storm clouds of Summer still rolling in ….  All in days work … beautiful storm clouds and the rich colours that I so love of The DRC. With a pic of a bridge under water, in route to the office today 🙂

Colours of the Congo

I so do love the bright vibrant colours of The DRC at this time of the year, at the tail end of the rainy season. Dark clouds are still rolling in bringing afternoon and evening thunder storms, the rich greens of the forest and that distinctive red soil of Africa.

My Holiday Collage

Relaxing and restful time with my bi-pedal and quadruped family 🙂  Family Time, Cigars, Beverages, Great Food, Vinyl, Pussy (cats) and Great Views

Some of the Vinyl that was played ……

A few cigars and cool beverages were consumed ….

Amazing sunsets, moon-rises and … just generally great views from the patio …

Pussy (cats) in repose ……..

My family …..

And now its very soon back to work …. The DRC … here I come 🙂

African Sunset

Took these pictures whilst out walking on Wednesday night, to have dinner at a neighbouring project. …  as the sun was going down after a day of heavy rain … love the rich vibrant colours of the African sky.

Location- In the bush in The Southern DRC.

Amazing nostalgic soulful song with an African feel on the percussion and rhythm. Love the soul in this song, although it brought a tear to my eye … as I miss my loved ones (family) whilst being so far away ….

Fly, fly away
Do you remember?
All of us sleeping
How many of us dream?
This sky where we live
Is no place to lose your wings
So love, love, love
