    Dis beter om te droom en al word jou drome nooit waar nie, is dit nog steeds beter om deur die lewe te gaan met droome. Drome gee ons vlerke, dit stel ons in staat om te vlieg - selfs al vlieg ons net in ons gedagtes.

    Grendels En Tralies

    Deur die tralies van my hartkamer sypel daar 'n sonnestraaltjie deur. Hier waar ek donker en koud weg van die wêreld my kamoefleer. Ek sonder masker kruip weg in die diepste hartpunt waar niemand my kan vind. Weg van die wêreld se valse plastiek en gestroop om net myself te...

    Africa Is In My Soul

        An Israeli friend recently asked me; "With all the negative things you hear, why do you stay? What do you like about South Africa?"   South Africa is part of my soul. My ancestor's ancestors came from Europe. They came from many European...

    A New Discovery

    Until recently I didn't know I had Afrikaan blood, but my Grandma's researching our family tree and found that we're descended from my Grandma's grandad's brother who was Afrikaan (Her Grandad and his brother had different mums). Complicated isn't it? One of the reasons my...

    Ek is 'n regte Afrikaner van Namibië.

    En ek voel so gelukkig om mede-Afrikaners hier raak te loop. Engels is goed en wel, maar dit sal nooit vir my so lekker voel soos my eie moedertaal nie. Op skool was ek eintlik baie goed met Afrikaans en Engels, maar ek het doelbewus my Afrikaans afgeskeep. Ek het gedink: "Dis...

    Ons Liewe Taal Afrikaans

    As ware Suid Afrikaners is ons so lief vir ons taal. Maar die waarheid dis baie moeiliker om te spel in Afrikaans as in Engels, so die Engelse geliteraturde mense op EP wat 'n "which hunt" het op mense wat engelse spel foute maak hoop ek nie verstaan of kan in Afrikaans spel want...

    I May Look It, But I Am Not.

    I Am An Afrikaner

    I know that I am an Afrikaner, but if you had to ask my why I said so; I would have difficulty answering you.   I live in a multicultural society and have done so all my life. This means that my passport doesn’t prove that I am an Afrikaner. I am a South African...

    Sometimes I feel sad

    for overseas people because they will never have the equivalent of the words "lekker", "gatvol" or "eish" in English. They will never know how fun those words are to say.

    Sometimes we come to crossroads in our lives, usually caused by deceit, painful experiences. I'm there now. Have to make the right decision for me. For once think what is best for me, my health, wealth, emotions and appearance. We can decide to become bitter or better. I...

    I was born in Transvaal,

    South Africa the year they changed our province into three new province districts. My area was named for a Voortrekker who led families away from the oppressions of the British Imperialists. My parents moved to Gibraltar when I was two.

    Elke herinnering is soos n foto wat ek saammet my dra, party is mooi ander is minder mooi. Dis die minder mooi fotos oftewel herinneringe wat n donker plek in my hart het wat my herinnering is van pyn en seerkry. Herinneringe wat maar net nie wil weg gaan nie.
