Autumn Leaves (far south west of the bamboo curtain)


Cape Town, with its Mediterranean climate is currently experiencing autumn. Us, naturals prefer to dress with warmer cloths during the autumn/winter time.Nature is however acting differently in some cases. Some trees and plants are going through a metamorphose by shedding their leaves. In the process nature produce some spectacular autumn colors.


During summer, Cape Town is the destination for many visitors. One of them is my French friend from Marseilles, Fred. When the autumn months approach, Fred heads back for France. There are some who prefers to stay permanently, like the Egyptian geese in Claremont gardens.




At this time the weather will influence our activities, but there are plenty of things to do. When I have to stay indoors, it gives me the excuse to listen or view some jazz, fusion, salsa or some other Latin or world music. Hey, strike up some John Coltrane, Wes Montgomery, Pat Martino, The Five Corners Quintet, Jonas Gwanga, Pat Metheny, Eddie Palmierri, Shirley Horn, Alvin Dyers, Robbie Jansen, Errol Dyers, Wayne Gorbea or get into the groove with some funky Incognito.

If there is a break in the weather, take a walk up Muizenberg or Kalk Bay or go cycle in the tranquil Jonkershoek Nature Reserve in Stellenbosch.

"Jazz and freedom go hand in hand. That explains it. There isn't any more to add to it. If I do add to it, it gets complicated. That's something for you to think about. You think about it and dig it. You dig it..." Thelonious Monk
