The mind is a powerful instrument, often neglected and abused by its master. It willingly embarks on flights of fantasy … while riding out the remote impact (read outrageous gusts of wind and heaving buckets of rain) of cyclone irina this afternoon I was instead battling the Uruk Hai alongside the brave defenders of Helms Deep.
In a similar fashion, an impromptu breakfast trip less than 30 minutes up the road and I was Karen Blixen in Out of Africa. The delights of Tala Private Game Reserve, a hidden gem in an urban enviroment.
Granted we were there early on a Saturday morning, out of school holidays but it was an oasis of calm enhanced by a stellar meal!
