Caapse Rooi-Wild Berries In The Rain

I was living in the Cape Winelands many years ago and It was customary for our family to walk one of the literally dozens of hiking trails in the many mountains in and around Robertson on Sundays after lunch. One particular weekend we decided to do the McGregor, town trail, about 10 kilometers from Robertson and we were coming back down when a sudden passing shower caught us. We managed to find a small cave to get out of the rain, which soon passed and it was at the mouth of the cave where we found these strange berries growing. I unfortunately never found out the real name for them but one of the indigenous Koi tribes say it’s medicinal and known to them as “Kaapse Rooi Bessie”, Cape Red Berry.

Hello, I’m Andre’ Hartslief, Tranquilpen© 2008 “I finally discovered, that man’s whole purpose, is not to do the right things in life or to be good, to be successful or famous. Our entire purpose in life is to express divinity unto everyone and everything. How we do that, is by transforming ourselves completely, from an old state of existence to a new state and if we start removing those limitations piece by piece, It is only, then, that the Creator of the universe and all life, will begin to express himself, unbridled through us.
