The African Connection

BRONWYN KATZKE. You have to admit it; South Africa is beautiful. Yes, we can be pessimists by nature as we focus on the crime rate, corruption and political faults. But South Africa the country, the land itself, has a wealth of natural beauty. From the lush rainforests of Knysna to the stark beauty of the Karoo, to the kaleidoscope of Namaqualand in spring; we are blessed to live in a land that is as rich as it is diverse. And yet, as Pagans, we generally ignore the details of this natural landscape as we stick to the Pagan traditions of our predominately European roots.
