my dad as a youngster…. happy father’s day love love love xoxo
i’m so tied up with real & personal work right now that i’ve neglected to blog anything worthwhile in the past few days. unfortunately that will continue for a couple more days as i look forward to a busy weekend and attending my first ever big sporting event (aka fifa world cup soccer match) on monday. i’m really not into sports, at all… but like everyone else i’ve been swept up by fifa fever, as you may have noticed.
so, i’m just going to leave you to mull over the glorious dita until i get back.

my copy of the miseducation of lauryn hill was basically the soundtrack to my life when i was 15 (as well as the fugees, actually). to the point where not only did i know the words to all the songs, but i knew the words of the interludes of the children discussing things between each track. i am craving for her to make a comeback, big time. but who knows if that’s ever going to happen? for now i can take solace in one of my favourite ever music videos:
the mood across SA is a bit sad this morning (if you don’t follow the world cup…) and even though its technically not over for bafana yet, some people’s optimism has wained considerably since that awesome opening game against mexico. but my spirit isn’t broken, because i haven’t seen the country united like this since the 1995 rugby world cup.
i was watching the game with my dad & during the national anthem he said, “at this very moment 34 years ago people were patrolling our suburbs with guns, look at the country now.” that’s when you don’t actually care if bafana wins or not.
i have always really loved land art (strijdom van der merwe is a particular favourite), and i know some people might scoff at the concept but most of the time i find it more interesting to look at than traditional sculpture… perhaps it’s just my tiny inner hippy that finds it appealing. i discovered richard shilling recently, imagine going for a walk in the forest and discovering one of these beauties…
