Inspiration Avenue - Fantasy Vacation

One of the things that Madelein and I would love to do is to take a road trip around South Africa, stopping off at those little-known towns, visit the Owl House in Nieu Bethesda and see if we can spot the Uniondale Ghost. The trip would include seeing the Namaqualand daisies in bloom and a trip up to Mozambique to swim with Dolphins. The Tsitsikamma Forest. The bushveld.

Chickens and Roosters - Inspiration Avenue

Chickens and Roosters - An Abstract Interpretation

"I am Mishka the Fierce, Dissolver of Windows! Yah-Hah!"

"Now watch closely, Medeah, as I dissolve the window by licking it so that we can go inside."

"Mmmmm. Tastes like chicken."

A Meme - Via Kerry

Right now, I am updating my blogs

I’m currently obsessed with aliens. I always have been.

Cannot live without Coffee and cats. Not necessarily in that order. OK. In that order.

I’m reading The Richest Man in Babylon. In Afrikaans.

I’m listening to my mellow mix playlist on my iPod. 

Favourite place in Joburg de Ouwe Werf restaurant in (I think) Honeydew.

Favourite place in SA Tsitsikamma forest

Favourite place in the world Venice.

I’ve lived in Tel Aviv, Nazareth, Groningen, London, a rural English village and Johannesburg

Next up on my bucket list is to be super healthy

The last thing I crossed of my bucket list Shave my head

I realized I was an adult when I received my first real pay cheque

I realized I’d never be an adult when I received my first real pay cheque.

In the movie of my life, I want to be played by Janine Garafolo

Best invention since the wheel: iPod

A house is not a home without a cat

This week I’m crushing on art

I’m currently working on some art, two books, poetry, paintings and the business I have with my wife.

I’m really proud of my sense of  humour

You’d be amazed if I showed you my hats

I cannot survive winter without cappuccino

Signature dish spaghetti sauce

Guilty pleasure a bubble bath in the afternoon when I am all alone at home

When no-one’s looking, I put post-it notes up telling people how beautiful they are

In my next life I want to be a cat

Every morning, I cuddle with the dogs. It's the best part of the morning.

I believe that we are all one

I’ve really got to work on my health and fitness

Best advice I was ever given  was to pay attention to the Universal Baseball Bat when it's gently tapping you on the shoulder and before it swats you over the head

"Wishes" - Pencil sketch - by T - 5 June 2012

Sometimes we wish we had what someone else has, but we have no idea what their life is like or what they have had to do to be who they are. It's easy to think someone else has it all. Much harder work loving your life just as it is and enjoying what you already have.
