I dream in land(e)scapes

Weekly Photochallenge: DREAMY

 

“I divide my time as follows:

half the time I sleep,

the other half I dream.

I never dream when I sleep,

for that would be a pity,

for sleeping is the highest accomplishment of genius”

 

– Soren Kierkegaard

A Fairy Tale

Once upon a time but not so long ago and somewhere in nowhere nearby I was walking in an ancient forest.

Watched by numerous eyes, glittering in the moon quarter, I struck upon an owl high up in an elm asking me if I believe in faeries.

I said “Why do you ask”?

“Seeing is believing”.

And I saw.

When I woke up in the morning I said to my wife. “You never gonna believe this dream but I will visualize it for you”.

Mandela Day in the village

Today we celebrated Mandela Day at the pre-primary school Funimfundo in informal settlement Die Kop near our village. For 67 (+) minutes around 20 volunteers from all walks of life worked in the garden or were engaged with improving the plumbing. And the children? They had their afternoon nap (more or less, see pics) and dreamt of a better world. One of the volunteers bought special boots for the occasion: “Food for all” is her motto.
