Love These Mountains

We had the privilege of living in Australia for three years in the late Nineties.  What always struck me about the topography of that vast land was the lack thereof.  How sad to have access to so much territory, but be denied the opportunity to see mountains.

Back in Southern Africa, I look around and topography looms at me on all sides and I realise how lucky we are in this wonderful country.  Whenever the more mundane aspects of life get one down, one can inevitably go and sit on a mountain and forget most of one’s problems fairly quickly.
