A Decent Man

We had beautiful weather last weekend and it continued throughout the week. South African winters are the best, we usually have sunny bright days and cool evenings.

This week I had one of those Golden Thread enlightenment moments where I realized how all of my past lives relate to each other. It's the Celtic thread at the root which ties them all together. I detest Rosemary. I recently discovered that an old Appalachian folk tale involves planting Rosemary by the door to …
