My quiet observation

This morning the pages call me. I sit quietly in observation, have been for days. From another point of view it might seem loud and almost as if we are celebrating. Children going on egg hunts, shouting with glee at the days, because we are all together with no interruption. Their joy is palpable. As […]

  Trauma is something most experience at some point - it forms part of this life experience. I would love to hear if you are someone who has been given a free pass. This being said, we all deal with a traumatic event and the aftermath in our own unique way. Some of us run […]

Autumn dawning...Winter looming. Conversation with self (a process revealed).

I sit in my spot waiting for it all to fall into place, ha... Rather I am remembering to inquire rather than demand. The message is to let go of the need, the need to control an outcome. I sit here and in this space thoughts do form through words and sentences that I can […]

Sometimes I am just plain scared to put my words into this permanent space, called the internet. Sometimes I am plain lazy and other times I plainly have more pressing priorities. Yet making […]

Hello 2017

This new life we have founded in South Africa, is as consuming as a newborn baby. Much is pushed aside as we have to prioritize and learn our new life. And now it's 2017. And this new life is 6 months old. We are about to sit up and try some new food and potentially even […]

???Why South Africa when the USA could be our home???

Ha! Why? you ask with a frown upon your brow and disdain in your voice.   Why what? I want to ask, but I don't, because I know what you are asking and my heart fills with tears. Tuesday was Women's day and we were celebrating with hundreds of Joburgers at Emmarentia Live. With legendary […]

immigrating = 2nd stage

We have lived and breathed in our new home and life for the past month/4weeks. Unpacking our few belongings, settling in and embracing, saying hello, drinking wine, eating biltong. Its been exhilarating and overwhelming. Mostly it's been a beautiful time filled with what feels like abundance. Comparable to when I held my newborns and soaked […]
