The Moods of Platberg

Platberg, is known as the Free State’s own “Table Mountain” and it overlooks
the town, Harrismith.
It literally means the flat-mountain; the 2394m high mountain is a landmark & forms an imposing backdrop to the town.
The surface area covers approximately 3000ha and the slopes are steep with numerous vegetated gullies and boulder green slopes below vertical cliffs that are 20m to 45m high. It is an extension of the eastern foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains.

Miracles happen everyday,
change your perception of what a miracle is
and you'll see them all around you.

The simplification of life is one of the steps to inner peace.
A persistent simplification will create an inner and outer well-being
that places harmony in one's life.
Take time to laugh.
It is the music of the soul.

Freedom means you are unobstructed in living your life as you choose.
Anything less is a form of slavery.

A time for everything: a time to relax and a time to be busy,
a time to frolic and a time to lay up food for the winter,
a time to receive and a time to give,
a time to begin and a time to finish.
A time for work, a time for play -
balance in all things.
- Jonathan Lockwood 
We gather today in gratitude for the bounty of the land,
the joyful company around this table,
and all the other blessings of this life.
Look around for a place to sow a few seeds.
- Henry Van Dyke
Sometimes our light goes out but
is blown into flame by another human being.
Each of us owes deepest thanks
to those who have rekindled this light.
- Albert Schweitzer
We will only understand the miracle of life fully
when we allow the unexpected to happen.
- Paulo Coelho
If you love something, set it free;
if it comes backs it's yours,
if it doesn't, it never was.
- Richard Bach
Life is no brief candle to me.
It is a sort of splendid torch
which I have got a hold of for the moment,
and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible
before handing it on to future generations.
- George Bernard Shaw
Thank you for taking time to slow down and remember to 


Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit.
Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever,
even if your whole world seems upset.
- Saint Francis de Sales
