Early today the fire coming over the mountain into Fish Hoek 6am and now 9:30 am. This morning I awoke to the Southern Peninsula of Cape Town burning wildly, with yesterdays fires spreading and causing closure of main roads to and from the Peninsula. Feeling awe – being a feeling of amazement and fascination, invoked by something outside of our usual understanding. We most commonly experience this through spiritual experiences, nature and art.
