Story time

 

Storytelling is part of my culture, my history, my past. I grew up and learnt my lessons by hearing stories and tales. Although mine isn’t worthy of any grand prize, they do convey a little of how I see life and its simple everyday experiences. Told with some colourful splashing, much like I would paint on a canvas, an experience unfolds into a memory, a story if you like.  Around storytime, we all have a canvas to paint! Our joys become dramas. Our hardships become lessons. Our embarressments become comedies and our lives become books.

  2. Ai Ronell……nou het ek darem daai storie van jou geniet ‘Mariaans vetkoek!’ Nou mis ek Stellenbosch….en die Boland! Het sommer so lekker warm gevoel gekry toe ek die goue stroop op die vetkoek foto sien! (Jy skryf baie goed….voorwaar n wonderlike talent!)
