The road seems long and barren between the Northern Cape towns like Brandvlei, Kenhardt, Kakamas and Riemvasmaak. There are short bushes that fight against the dry, harsh and stern temperament of this landscape and you don’t see a lot of the animals who call this home. But there is an awe-inspiring beauty to this, and the veld is actually teeming with life. I have great respect for this beautiful landscape that has seen so much, and the animals and plants in it that have withstood so much.
The trees ahead and the bushes beside you…
They are not lost.
Remember, wherever you are
Is also called here…”
