White moths, black butterflies

April 30, 2009

No, this is not a comment on the new south africa, but a record of what has passed this past week: walking up to Rhodes Memorial with Noah on Monday, we saw hundreds of black butterflies on the lower slopes, just as you enter the turnstile after the bridge. The white moths we saw at home, the first one one the white exterior wall, then the other inside a day or two later, and finally they found each other and settled outside.

Also, Chelsea left last week. I wonder if she’ll be back?

Jesse is hhere as compensation. She’s the only one who gives me affection:)


I am thinking of voting ANC tomorrow for the first time since ’94.

Any comments?

I’m a hopeless romantic…

I ignore the shit,until it hits the fan…that’s what Noleen tells me, anyway.

We have a new pet, Jesse the dog. She stays with me at night when the others have gone to sleep. Soon she will be able to accompany on my night walks to that throbbing nightspot in Pinelands, the BP service station.

We are bonding. I have not done any scooping yet, though. Perhaps the two are mutually exclusive…
