An Elephant in my Suitcase
I am a child of Africa, born in Zimbabwe and grew up on a beautiful tobacco and cattle farm. I’ve moved countless times and do not really know where I want to put down my forever roots.
My stories are short spurts of adventures through life all over, how and where I travel, funny happenings and the harsh reality of depression who most of us have met.
You are here to escape the humdrum of life and boring chores in small bites, between hanging the washing and going to the next office meeting.
You’ll discover I am cautious though adventurous. An extroverted introvert. And, just like you, hungry to discover new things, the why of the way we feel, new cultures and countries – and hey, ho – everyday life through fresh eyes.
My packing advice is to take your passport, medical kit, credit card .. and your smile.
The ups and downs of a week living through a science fiction war movie in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal. We are all rubbing our brows, wondering “what on earth happened?” 7 days of amazement, fear, foraging for food & fuel together with a healthy dose of miracles. July 11 – 19, 2021
Snippets of life as a farmers daughter in Zimbabwe in the 1970’s. What a joyful time spent with family and friends despite a terrorist war.
A frightened dwarf mongoose, lost and alone amidst a wintery landscape, is confronted by his self. Suddenly his heart settles as he hears his voice in the rustling leaves and big skies of Africa and knows he is able to hear his inner being as his companion.
