Anniversary blogging…..?

October 3, 2014 in Uncategorized

Seems like this is becoming a once a year thing of mine.  Popping in now and then, leaving a smidgen of an update, just to prove that I’m still alive….

Latest member of the Family was born on Wednesday….


Welkom  Oupa en Ouma se blompot….. Victoria Grace, sister to Aurora Gabrielle Maria….  May your life be a blessed one indeed.

Life is treating me well, tremendously well, a new chapter in a worn diary, but the best out of my story so far…

Chat soon again

A new life has begun….

October 17, 2013 in Uncategorized

So much has happened and changed in my life over the past year…

I’ve closed one book and started another.  I am happier than I have been in years, I really am.  Yet, somehow that old black dog still pops around now and then… like today and I look for old, familiar comforting things and find none.  And come to the realization that perhaps, just perhaps they were never really there.

A new life is waiting to be lived, experienced and enjoyed.

Best I get on with it hey


Eerste ster

September 5, 2013 in Uncategorized

Vanoggend val jou trane sag en stilweg
En jou gedagtes dwaal ver
Terug na ‘n dag lank, lank verlede
Met die geboorte van jou eerste ster….

Die dae is dalk nou baie stiller
En soms voel jou nagte ook nog langer
Maar vind vrede vandag van alle dae
Want diep in jou hart is waar jou kind altyd veilig sal rus…

Wees rustig

August 7, 2013 in Uncategorized

Was vir ‘n laaaaaang ruk stil…  Die pyn is weg mense en rustigheid is hier.  Explorer is so, so bly…  Vir die van julle wat dit dalk sal nodig hê….   Glo my dit werk!!!  Praat gou weer!

Laat val vandag al jou hartseer trane

Spoel weg gister se pyn

Kyk op na jou more se son

Dis waar jou sorge sal verdwyn…

Voel die wilde geklop van jou hart

En staan stil langs die spoor

Want dit is hy wat jou vat waar jy nie wil gaan….

Honey…… I’m home

It’s been a while since I’ve been around.  So much has happened, or rather is happening.  I’m finding my feet and birthing out of one life into another.

Days have blurred into the past and the future lies stretched out waiting to be claimed..

Why do I do this?

Why do I go back time and time again

To places, people and things

Where I’ve never been…

Always inflicting the same sadness

Ripping open the same doubts

Feeling the immense pain

Wrenching at my heart

Until nothing remains…

Bound, gagged and dredged

March 4, 2013 in Uncategorized

I’m an emotional being
Even though I’m housed in flesh and blood

My soul’s fragile and sometimes adrift
Making this body’s heart wild and pound with fear

There’s an ache for belonging
A craving to know need
To feel wanted beyond belief

There’s no understanding
Always only immense regret
For things gone by and those not in my present yet

Emotions ride the tide of darkness
Forever sweeping aside reason
Making friends with dread
Keeping this being bound, gagged and dredged….

And so it begins….

All your life you think you are invincible…
Till your first classmate dies…

Life is short,  enjoy it people…  live the best one that you can.  Don’t stand back for anything or anyone.  No one is going to pat you on your back for putting yourself second…


RIP Debbie

Sterk arms omvou….
Sagte woorde versterk….

More verstrengel in my grootmens lewe

Gedagtes dwaal….
Gevoelens druk….

Vandag vasgevang in my jongmens drome

Elke nuwe dag
‘n nuwe ding

Gevoelens ontbloot
Waar’s die masjientekenaar

Die een met die bloudruk????

Die een wat alles weet????
