In the footsteps of my Oupa by 

This was a beautiful moment, visiting the church in the small Karoo town where my Oupa grew up… Niewoudtville. There is no doubt he spent Sundays as a child in this very church… today the streets are still sand roads, the town is still tiny, and is part of the wildflower route. Just up the road is a gorge and waterfall where – again – as a child, my Grandfather must have played and spent his childhood daydreaming… perhaps never imagining that one day his grand-daughter and great-grand-daughter would visit this very place and think of him – long gone.

Niewoudtville, die kerk en dorpie waar my Oupa groot geword het.

Wildly alive, wondrously living, learning, laughing, loving.. a poet, dreamer, photographer, not-so-serious-philosopher – treading lightly on this earth, traveling with a full and open heart, sharing my experiences, my writing, my photography. Here. With you. :)
