Woman's day

Today is international Woman's Day.  In South Africa it is a public holiday with most businesses closed.  There are cultural events at various venues, and lots of big wigs making speeches...  I hope that you are enjoying the day of freedom from routine, and that you will give a thought to the plight of the many women in the world who are suffering due to the injustices of society.  I believe that one does not need to make a grand contribution, or join a campaign or society to give meaning to this day.  A kind and uplifting gesture to one woman less fortunate is probably all the world needs to start coming right.

This morning I woke to the very first rain of spring, what a lovely gift!  It has put me in a mood to wander through the veld with the dogs, to sniff the air like an animal, and to run twigs through my fingers to see if they are budding yet. 

When I am done with that, I am going to sit myself at the computer, and get a whack of website pages to line up and link up and do what they are supposed to do.  The new website is coming along beautifully, and pages from the old website are starting to disappear as I replace them with the new more streamlined ones.

Wishing you a restful and creative day!
