Before relocating from Johannesburg to De Rust, I read an article somewhere that said urbanites moving to the countryside needed to find things to keep them entertained or the threat of boredom would become very real.
Boredom? That’s a swearword in my vocabulary…
The solution in the aforementioned article was to take pleasure in the little things. While I agree for the most part with the idea of appreciating the little things, I beg to differ about the “little” in little things, and think that the so-called little things are actually quite significant.
Stars are far away and may seem “little”, but they’re enormous when you look at them up close (theoretically, otherwise send me a postcard from space, k?).
It was only when I really started looking closely at the little things that whole worlds opened up… most of which were right in my backyard! So in the spirit of appreciating the little things, welcome to Tiny De Rust.
