This postcard goes with me everywhere

It makes me feel better when I am homesick. It shows how South Africa really is a world in one country.  I use it as a bookmark for whatever I happen to be reading.

I grew up in Port Elizabeth/Port Alfred – dolphin, surfing, and pineapple country!

  1. You know, I couldn’t agree more, particularly the worrying bit? I still do it but I try to tell myself that there is no point in worrying about what’s already happened, nor indeed about what might happen. I do get a bit maudlin for the old days, perhaps because I enjoyed them so much, but probably more so because getting older is no joy. Where on earth have all the years gone, and so quickly?

  2. Do you find you yearn for the old days? Looking at an old photo you are looking at what was and it was that that makes you happy. I have to confess that I am much happier looking back to what I remember rather than looking to what is to come. Maybe it’s because I don’t like getting older, I don’t know.

    • I find looking back makes me very nostalgic. Especially as I am growing older. I wish I had appreciated what was more than I did at the time. You spend so much of your life worrying about things that you didn’t have to worry about!
