My man is away, on his surfing sabbatical *sigh. (That is a sigh for, I miss him) I just googled pictures of where he is. He's in the Tsunami devastated, malaria infested jungles of Nias. check out this perfect wave...

Tonight I am going slow dancing

I love pictures of people slow dancing. Here are a few of my faves...

I hope to look like this couple one day...aren't they gorgeous? 
A good venue for slow dancing in Cape Town is Pigalle.

This weekend I went to the premier of CREDO:A musical testament to the Freedom Charter, in Johannesburg, a ground-breaking multimedia oratorio, composed by award-winning Bongani Ndodana-Breen, and multimedia artist Andrew Black (my guy!) Together they have created a 67 minute production that explores the endurance of the human spirit over adversity, through South Africa's turbulent history. It was moving and beautiful and incredibly sad. I loved it, I hope you get to see it too. It's coming to Cape Town and then touring overseas.

things on your own: Going to the Theatre

One of the assignments from my writing course was to go and do something on my own, ie. take yourself on a 'writing date'. So I booked a ticket and watched London Road last night, at the Alexander Bar (76 Strand Street) What a special, well written play. It's about a Jewish 'mensch' who lives in a block of flats in London Road, Seapoint, and meets a Nigerian woman, and their unlikely friendship. Heartwarming and incredibly moving, it put life into perspective. Sad, funny, well executed, and amazingly acted, I cried ALOT. cathartic. 5/5 Here's the write-up, "The beau­ti­ful, poignant story of an unlikely friend­ship between two women, neigh­bours in a block of flats in Sea Point. Rosa is an elderly Jew­ish widow. Stella is a Niger­ian immi­grant cagey about the details of her import/export busi­ness. Their lives col­lide after an inci­dent of vio­lence, and grad­u­ally they dis­cover much in com­mon — fam­i­lies scat­tered around the world, old grudges, lost loves and a fiery verve for life. Funny and heart­break­ing with pow­er­ful, detailed performances."
