Rushing Home before the storm.

Rushing Home before the storm.

Some years ago, we were on holiday in the Eastern Cape of South Africa and we had spent a long day out driving. As Evening fell, we realised we had a storm behind us and we were on a dirt road so it was important to get under shelter. My husband could not stop of course and we were tired and hungry and rushing to get back. I took this photo through the windscreen traveling at 120 kms an hour. The effect was rather like an Impressionist painting!

I have always been surrounded by books. My parents had books, books and more books. I haunted the library as a child and when I grew up I worked in books shops. When I had children and they went to school I ran the school library. And my husband keeps on telling me there are too many books in the house. They somehow seem to pile up on every available surface almost of their own volition. I fight back and donate mounds of them to the local library but somehow it is a losing battle. I just find more taking their place! For the last eight years or so I have been wrestling with writing a novel and what a fierce tussle it is. I am about to publish this magnum opus in a few weeks time. I feel as I did when I gave birth to my children; nervous but excited!
