Yuyen Garden

I had to go twice! That is how startled I was when I first saw the Yuyen Garden. There were fish and statues and arched passageways, ancient tiles and dramatic trees. One viewing was never going to be enough. It was some two hundred yen to go in. After walking through tables after tables of strange…

The Horizon South Africa

The  best part about travel is finding a world left bare and open for you. And you are given the chance to touch it, let your eyes run across it, envy it and capture it however you like. If there is ever a greater freedom for us, it is in moving feet. Not the comfort of…

My Poetry

Every single time I write poetry I get scared. It is one of life’s hardest things to do and I know I am exposing my self to ridicule. But it is like the colour of my veins are turning black with ink, willing me to expose myself. So every single time I write poetry I…

Writtrace Aquarium

Walking through an Aquarium will prove to you one very valuable thing. There are strange things in this world! I didn’t believe it at first and just kept gasping at every tank. They are truly a marvel. All the wonders of the world that have excited before the destruction of man are even more than…

On the main land

The worst land dwellers and the most beautiful swimmers, a simple yet fascinating animal in its right. Even though I couldn’t grab a pic of them in the water, It was great to see them going about their day.

Peering through the heart

I find that it is better the imperfections than the perfections. The imperfect cause us to treat our hearts and file away all hate, indifference, fear and rebuke. The imperfections cause us to love all and celebrate all including peace and happiness. An imperfect life is brought to perfection then by the willingness of the…

Forging new paths

Penguins are fascinating, really! Someone wakes you up in the morning and tells you that ‘today is the day you get to see one’. You are so excited, you ran about the room getting ready and force everyone into the car for an early start. Then you get there and your smile is left stranded…

VANCE JOY: JOYFUL LAMENTATION FROM A SONG BIRD.

Its not easy to infuse a story in a set of words that should, at most, take two minutes to get through. Its even harder to make those words resonate with a shared life lesson. When we find music that does so, it is undeniably beautiful. It echoes in our hearts and makes our dance more…

Self Awareness Quote

What do I value most – My talent or my people? I have been writing a lot of these single sentence quotes in my attempt to understand more of the world. Truthfully, most of the ideas are rough and probably wrong. But, it allows me to see the world in different colours. Not just the colours we…

An Act Of Kindness

We are limited in what we think or hope for. We are limited in what we perceive as right and what we perceive as wrong. We are limited further in the action we take to our rightly pursuits, yet favour our ventures to destruction. It does not help us. But, what would it take to learn a simple thing? An…

What’s wrong with Suicide Squad?

Seriously? Are you asking? Or do you mean What was the worst thing about Suicide Squad? Let me start us off by saying, I just didn’t believe in Joker and I think we need to believe him. The late Heath Ledger did it right. He had the perfect amount of crazy in front of a mind that was…

DCs Legends of Tomorrow. REVIEW

I had fond memories of hope that this would in fact be an extraordinary journey through science fiction and the world of superheroes. But instead, it was not. DCs Legends of Tomorrow has nearly brought me to new depths of depression. There is nothing extraordinary or exhilarating about its first season. In fact, it is so…
