Camille, The Pretty Witch on A Rainy Day (1982)
She was such a strange girl.
I saw her in the Park - every morning and evening as we went to and from work.
She moved with a self-contained serenity.
Her marble expression conveyed nothing
But her steady and purposeful stride told everything.
That - and her Witches hat.
One day it was raining - and I offered her shelter under my umbrella as we walked.
She inspired this water-color that I painted, way back in 1977.
I never forgot her.
Then - one day, a life time later - I found THE Witch.
We made it this far.
My Shiny Wife tells me: "I'm mad about you. MWah!"
She drives me crazy. And I drive her mad.
Donna booked us in to the the very last Orchard Cottage at the end of the row.
Number SEVEN!? on the Boschendal Wine Estate for the week-end.
"As far away as we can get from other visitors!" - Donna victoriously proclaims.
We had breakfast on the restaurant patio. After a lazy morning, we are now driving the WOLF back to our cottage, taking our picnic basket with us.
We are not going to sit with the hoi-polloi on the lawns.
We will have our "lazy lunch" at a small dam near our cottage. And crank up the music in WOLF, "so that we can dance - if we want", my Shiny Wife tells me.
Dressed in her Oriental-style robe, Donna Darkwolf once again blew away the other guests at breakfast.
As we were passing the wall of Camelias, I noticed that the pink of the flowers complimented her robe, and I had Donna pause for me. . .
Click! The inevitable photo-op.
As we dance to our Wedding Bossa Nova wafting out from The WOLF, I am reminded of the words from "My Love" by Florence + the Machine.
Our feet dont touch the ground -
"I was always able to write my way out
Song always made sense to me ///
So tell me where to put my love
Do I wait for time to do what it does?
I don't know where to put my love"
