One Word Sunday: Pareidolia

Two forest creatures having a tête-à-tête, but why stand so close to one another? Haven’t they read about social-distancing?


Hope you’re all keeping a safe distance from your fellow creatures on this beautiful Sunday.

Wordless Wednesday: The Dancer

“Listen to the trees as they sway in the wind. Their leaves are telling secrets. Their bark sings songs of olden days as it grows around the trunks. And their roots give names to all things. Their language has been lost. But not the gestures.” – Vera Nazarian (The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration)


Happy Wednesday to you all.




Weird Faces in Umhlanga’s Rocks

There are huge rocks along the coastline here in Umhlanga Rocks, hence it’s name. As some of you may remember, I ‘suffer’ from a condition called Pareidolia, which means that I see faces in almost everything I look at. These rocks are no exception. Can you see what I see?


Here are some more, which to me look like animals racing towards the beach.  I’m sure the closest one is a dog.

Magical clouds at sunset

Yesterday evening whilst having dinner, I looked up at the setting sun and saw this fantastical figure riding through the sky. Can you also see the cherub face and the fluffy wings?


Did you know that there is name for the phenomenon of seeing faces and other images in the clouds? It’s called ‘Pareidolia’. If you also ‘suffer’ from this happy condition, you’re not alone.  There is a cloud appreciation society which has over 8,000 members.
