“Going Bush”

“Going Bush”

There is an expression saying in New Zealand ,”going bush”, which is used where someone is, or intends to, escape the rat race for awhile.

It could literally mean disappearing into dense bush like that in the photo but it could be escaping anywhere really, just to get away from it all for a time.

I feel the need to “go bush” myself after the strange and awful year the world has had to endure – just a bit jaded. Should start planning to do just that, but then again,”going bush” is not something that lends itself to a great degree of deliberation.

When you feel the need to go, just go!

                                            wooden shafts

                                                       shafts of light and air

                                                                  run parallel

                                                                             then merge
