Jy knoop ‘n lint om jou vinger, sodat jy ‘n afspraak kan onthou. Jy leer jou kinders hoe om hul skoenveters of dasse te knoop. Metaforiese knope is seker ‘n bietjie moeiliker om te knoop, maar ons doen dit eintlik daagliks. Ek het ‘n stelling raakgelees wat beweer dat die lied wat jy uit jou…

“Dark” is the word to best describe the month of September for me. So instead of fighting this ‘darkness” I decided to go search for some more ‘noir’….and this is what I found:

“The light comes from the dark” Roger Ballen

and while engulfed with my own darkness and that of Mr Ballen’s, I missed the “Super Bood Moon Total Eclipse of 2015” and have to wait until 2033 to see it again, but thank goodness for youtube 😉

and while on the subject of blood (or just a little bit of it)……

I received my first ink (tattoo) this month: (from a place called Indalo Ink in Oudtshoorn, South Africa!

A full lace cuff:

I  hope you have a wonderful October!

I am a terrible romantic but the hype around Valentines day can get a bit much at times.  So when I saw this work by Diane Victor which is part of the “Truth of Valentine” exhibition currently at Longstreet Art Lovers 1932– something in me just resonated with this.  Probably because I tend to love so much and so deeply that it hurts.

Talking about hearts and emotions= I found this lovely quote in one of my Journals: (I think its written by Paul Zindell- but not 100% sure)

“Another peculiar misconception is that the heart is the seat of all emotions.  If a sapiens is cruel he is called ‘heartless‘.  They often love someone with ‘all their heart’.  They know things ‘by heart’, they ‘lose heart’, and buy whatever ‘their heart desires’.  One wonders what happens to these feelings, no matter how ‘heartfelt‘ when a transplant occurs.”
