Humanity playing weird games…

Humanity comes in lots of different shapes, sizes, colors, emotions… One of these, very South African forms of humanity is the game of Rugby (this passion is also seen in New Zealand, and our two mighty nations will clash again in 20 minutes time…oh happy days!)

There is just nearly nothing as self assured as a winning team, running onto the field of play, and then forming a circle to just recommit to give their all…

This is our local High School’s First Team… one of these humans is my eldest son.

Well- off to the television to see the Springboks beat up the All Blacks again ( I wish!!!) Top experience of the game of Rugby, played by very weird humans…


Tough Times in Africa

Daily Prompt: Eye of the Beholder

by michelle w. on October 5, 2013

Describe what it feels like to hear a beautiful piece of music or see a stunning piece of art.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us BEAUTY.


Beauty in the eye of the beholder… hmm- let me think about that one…

We just lost a rugby game against New Zealand, but what a match! it hurts, but well done All Blacks, you are the best (at the moment…)  They would call it a stunning piece of art, I suppose… (Like Kieran Reed’s ears… 🙂  )

Anyway, while our hearts were breaking, my daughter had a lot of fun at Sun City…..

Beauty is Africa’s animals. And, like any dad would think- my daughter!

And like Forrest Gump said: That is all I want to say about that…
