My sister, Dottie sends me missives from South Africa. Details of her daily life.
Exploratory jaunts to interesting places. In the shots above, a journey to the vast territory known as the Great Karoo to see outsider artist Helen Martin’s Owl House.
I like knowing that one of the Moss sisters is off on another continent roaming far and wide.
I wonder what this monkey is thinking about. Probably wondering if a monkey above him is getting ready to crash land on his head. Or maybe he’s wondering if it’s going to rain. He could be thinking about the dream he had last night. I wish I knew.
Look at that downy coat and chocolate eyes. Small curious hands.
About 25 years ago on a narrow highway in the Florida Keys, Dottie screamed for me to “pull over Now!” so she could stomp off into a swampy area to chase an elusive blue heron she thought she saw. I rolled my eyes and stayed in the car to smoke a cigarette. She was gone for a long time.
I wonder how long it took for Dottie to get this shot. I wonder if her traveling companion blew smoke rings out the window while she waited. Somehow I doubt it.
