I embrace my desire to feel the rhythm, to feel connected
Enough to step aside and weep like a widow
To feel inspired, to fathom the power,
To witness the beauty, to bathe in the fountain,
To swing on the spiral, to swing on the spiral,
To swing on the spiral of our divinity and still be a human.
With my feet upon the ground
I lose myself between the sounds
And open wide to suck it in.
I feel it move across my skin.
I'm reaching up and reaching out.
I'm reaching for the random or whatever will bewilder me.
Whatever will bewilder me.
And following our will and wind
We may just go where no one's been.
We'll ride the spiral to the end
And may just go where no one's been.
Spiral out. Keep going.

The endangered Silver Tree of South Africa. The photo doesn’t capture the mesmerizing silver beauty of this member of the Proteaceae family. My favourite at the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens.
King of the South Side 👑 This Protea cynaroides (King Protea) has been honoured as the national flower if South Africa. It grows amongst fire prone vegetation where natural fires occur every 10- 30 years. It survives these fires because of a cool stem adaptation- Its stem is thick and grows underground containing many dormant buds which will produce new growth after a fire occurs 🔥
