Change your attitude by Maree  Clarkson

I’m stating the rather obvious, but just a quick reminder …

You can’t always change your situation,
but you can always change your attitude

~ Larry Hargraves

Seagulls often pass over my garden, and it always amazes me as to how they got to be so far inland, 600km from the coast. In Randfontein (Gauteng, south Africa), not far from us, they hang around some Take-Away food venues and I have also seen quite a big flock at the Municipal rubbish dump. some day I’ll find out how they got around to being up here in Gauteng!

I am a watercolorist living on my little piece of African soil in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa. The inspiration for my art is the wonderfully rich variety of Fauna and Flora to be found throughout this beautiful country.
