the crumpled boarding pass fell out my pocket as I fumbled for my keys time away from home makes the heart more distant taking care of self whilst away causes pain to those close distance damages doesn’t always heal departing the breach leaves a gap that could be filled by another or just left empty love and affection forgotten, lost in time through one’s travels this void left …. empty, vacant and alone
Storm Clouds gather over the office … and then it all comes crashing down; thunder, lightening and torrential rapid downpours
The Plains of Africa … Big Sky
A small visitor and the road back to camp … with another approaching thunder storm, the horizon is alive with flashes of lightening.

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
The Derek Trucks Band – This Sky
First massive thunderstorm to hit our region in the Southern DRC … made me think of this song. Toto – Africa
I managed to take some photos of the rain, muddy water and gorgeous colours; a pity I could not capture the rolling thunder and loud cracks of lightening across the sky. The storm was right overhead so our lightening siren went off, as many people are killed in this region by lightening strikes. The water was ankle deep in places from the flash storm, and trees were blown over. Thankfully my tent stood solid and is dry inside – tent picture is take from some time back, not from today 🙂
