Greetings to All of Africam by Amy
My name in the land of cam watching is Camfan1, and although I am fairly new to this site, just six months now, I feel like I have found a new home.
I live in the bright sunny state of Florida, in the USA, which puts me about 7 hours behind South Africa’s time. I do get to see the afternoon in Africa, but most of my cam watching is spent viewing at night, when a wonderful and mysterious atmosphere takes over the waterholes. It has fast become my favorite time to watch, wait and listen for the sounds and occasional sights of that remarkable land.
While prowling around in the Africam site, reading and learning, and reading some more, I found a little section for blogging…one of my very favorite things to do. While I am currently employed in a public school system, I have always been a writer in disguise, so the chance to write immediately drew my attention.
Something has to grab my heart before I can write about it, and it didn’t take very long for that to happen while watching the cams. I experienced awe and a breathtaking feeling of respect when I got my first view of lions as they emerged from the bush into the night time quietness. I listened as baboons became so angry and afraid that my heart felt like it was going to beat out of my chest. So I wrote…trying to get all those feelings down on paper so I would never forget them.
Sharing what we see in words is not what everyone enjoys doing, but for some of us it helps the memories become lasting and more meaningful. We hope you’ll take a moment to check out the blogs that some of our favorite folks in Africam have already documented, and perhaps add an entry of your own.
As for me, I am going to pop over there and see what new words are floating around, and maybe add a few more of my own.
