Ok. Ok. I Believe you. You can farm.
Calvinia- a ‘frowned-faced’ town?
Open Google-earth- it appears as if certain map-symbols have been consigned to oblivion…This land seems to be empty of life- joyless.
Hmm, not really. Life here is full of beauty. Noticing it is the secret.
Just pack your 4x4, load the dogs and show up. In round numbers 80k’s from Calvinia. As this 739ha pretty much holds the ’ace-up its sleeve’. You will see.
This lonesome environment will fill your mind with a voice that doesn’t use words. All you need to do is just listen.
Yes, your feet will hurt from wandering these endless plains. Just remember you have been a 'desk-jockey’ pretty much your entire career. So, this physical exercise will be a new experience for you. Not mentioning gathering your sheep- Oh, boy. You will realize it is not child’s-play.
Starting your braaivleis-fire at dusk you will feel basted and blazed by the sun. Airing your Merlot won’t be a priority. ‘Melting’ away with the unfamiliar Calvinia night-sounds will be more inviting. As tomorrow this- all starts over again.
…and you telling me you can farm!
Oh, ok- I will be on the look-out for your 4x4 at the gate. Next weekend at dawn.
