I was up long before my alarm sounded. Tired body, tired soul, a worn down mental state of mind after a rough night of little sleep. A constant slumber of dreams and fears entwined.
Weekends are my time to reflect. To slow things down. To dream up future adventures. To blissfully feel safe, comforted by the material things that surround me and then head out for new explorations all across the Garden Route.
I’ve (boldly, selfishly) decided that Mondays were never created to be spent in an office (in my case a studio). Instead it will become a day of exploring, a day for research, a day for getting to know my surroundings and no doubt, myself.
Some times in life we lose our way. Not on purpose, not even consciously…we just do.
With a week of Garden Route road tripping behind us, it was time to head to the city and with a full weekend of downhill mountain biking, there were loads to look forward to.
Sunday March 3rd, Western Province Downhill Series 2013 official race day. After a quiet day at Zevenwacht the day before, change was expected on race day as spectators filled the previously empty track with spectacular views of the vineyard. It was a good turnout!
In just a couple of hours we heading out to Zevenwacht Wine Estate for the second round of the Western Province Downhill Series 2013!
About a year or two ago I was commissioned by WolfAlley (a creative organization of diverse individuals expressing their talents and expertise through a multitude of different industries/art forms/sports/projects and products) to create their once off, one of a kind, Air Off championship signet ring.

At 6 this morning my feet were already connecting to the earth. I got into my running gear, stepped outside, left my mind behind and ran. it was incredibly freeing. and i’m thinking, i want to live this way.
It’s Monday morning. Waking up to the rising sun over the mountains and the sound of swallows living in and around cliff faces, I’m sure isn’t your usual start to the week.
After about four days of blistering cold weather, wind and rain, the sun has at last come out to play and is shining blissfully on my face.
