Where I was going…

Yeah I got caught up on Facebook as soon as I grabbed my phone to write this post. Typical behaviour, I got sidetracked and in the process a fire was lit up in my chest!

Then I remembered that, Facebook wasn’t the reason I had grabbed this phone at this hour to air my chest.

After all is said and done, the reason why I grabbed this phone is…

I am faced with a task to go face my past, my past love, or is it still current love? Well I don’t know any more but yeah I have to go to Joburg, tie up loose ends and put some matters to bed.

It’s hard pulling myself out of the bliss of where I am.

I look around and listen to the messages that birds sing in their chirp, the mountains that remind me there are distant places in my sight I cannot even begin to imagine ever reaching.

I look at the children playing mindlessly and remember what it was like when I could not see their play!

Deep sigh,

I pull myself out of my comfort, down the drink (last swallow) and decide that yes,

I will go ahead and face my past self.

My past world.

My love.

My foregone dream that came true but didn’t deliver the gold I had anticipated would be the reward.

Just like in the movies, right?

Right.

I have seen it, and I stumbled into this pic in one of the blogs I read now and again. And I really had to repost it.

Jozi people, there is an iconic bridge, just as fabulous as the icon its been named after. you will find it when you cross over from Jozi CBD to Braamfontein. Some have seen it, only in broad daylight.

This is one of the most amazing scenic Jozi night moments, that a lot miss out on, because “Joburg CBD is dangerous!!” Well, with sights like these, I will move heaven and earth, just to experience them. somehow the “Danger” always has mercy on me…. and no, it’s not because of the colours, its the magic in the bridge!!!

We have a beautiful city, and I don’t mean Sandton and all those areas people usually associate with the beauty of Jozi, I am referring to the downtown, the scary side, and you know what, I will keep posting these beautiful scenes. They have a lot to do with my love of this city. I am convinced there is magic in Jozi.
