My everyday life - cars and goat tracks
by Tracy Mcalister mackay - 09:12 on 11 February 2011
I have been thinking for a while that my car is now eating petrol and getting very tired and not so good for the environment.
It has taken us on lots of little adventures over salt lakes, through mud looking and finding flamingos, along E4 walking route where my son had walked on a school hikes and assured me a car could do and it did with some hairy bends and drops but fantastic places not seen unless you own a goat :-)
It has bumped along beaches, white rocks and coves for birthday barbeque's. School runs, carried drum kits and guitars full of would be rock stars, ballet shoes and would be starlets.
It has carried me to lost worlds where Romans, Phoenicians, Neolithic tribes once roamed. Fresco's that can only been seen if the old man in the taverna can be found with the key. It has taken me to walk and swim in the sea and carried home collections of stones from long dried up riverbeds where pale turquoise chalky peebles lay hidden last used by ancients carving amulets. Shells and flint when held fit snugly next to my thumb and finger.
It has carried artwork to framers for exhibitions, crates of work to send art abroad, acrylics and metals and papers now sailing on a big ship...... today I say goodbye and am grateful for happy memories.
