A lot of us have idealised notions of writers retreating from the world to log cabins deep in the woods, to think profound thoughts, sit at their keyboards, and weave the straw of 26 characters into the gold of sublime prose. Well, I don’t have the log cabin in the heart of the forest, but I do have this hut in my homeland of Zimbabwe, Africa, which suits me wonderfully! Downstairs there’s a table from which I can look out at the musasa trees. Upstairs is a bed directly under the thatched roof – for me, there’s nothing quite so reassuring as going to sleep under the golden softness of straw.
Dear David,, What a lovely hut, and what an irresistible galago! Thank you for sharing.
And I look forward to acquiring and avidly reading your upcoming book

Thank you David and Koala for a wonderful time in Zim. You accommodation is a bit flasher than the mud hut I had imagined! Looking forward to the next instalment and sharing you journey
Congratultions for "THE CLOW OF ATTRACTION" I am preparing to read it.
But rigth now is so Good you are writing in your hut. And is wonderful you are feeding Kadiki. I would love to do that.
Thanks so much for sharing.
Your hut is the stuff of dreams - a whole novel, or series of novels, or even a film could easily be based on this hut. Who lives there, who visits there, the nearby villages and journeys. Glad to be part of donations to such wonderful organizations as well.
I love your hut. It has simple beauty, uncluttered and good for imagination and free thinking.
Your elephant friend looks like he is smiling at you. I love the pictures of you and your animal family.
How lovely how quaint! Nice!
Davide , thank you for your relaxing post...I smile always.
Such good news about both the upcoming book with our favorite puss and about the generous donations! Well done you!
Your description makes me feel like I am there in the hut, I can almost smell the straw. Thank you for guiding us gently to loving care for all creatures.
🙏🏽 Thank you for all you do to keep us enlightened and for all you do for the animals 💖
Continued thanks David for your most wonderful writing, and all that you do to bring goodness into our world.
Just what I would like. Your hut is beautiful, I could live there quite happily.
Thank you for the feedback and the wonderful photos. The little night ape is so cute and the ele is really enjoying the berries.
Thank you David
Thank you for everything you do and I fully endorse all the positive comments, how genuine and so thoughtfully put.
Writing a novel in itself, must be like taking a holiday, for one who is passionate about writing. A joy for you and a joy for us to read, so write on. Please!
I can't think of a better place for you to unravel your thoughts onto the keyboard. I sense your excitement its very much the same way I feel about painting.
The hut looks beautiful, and I could settle and live there too. But from reading all the comments from like thinking subscribers. It could get a little crowded
Allways my best wishes and pleased everything is going well for you all.
Is the little Galago akin to the Bushbaby, he seems to have the same amber coloured eyes? Trish
