It is that time of the week again - and so I wish you: A Great Weekend!

Little Green Man.

I can't help liking this evil-looking little critter which appeared recently in a bus shelter near Simonstown. He is kind of cute, you have to admit.

Have a great week, everyone! And if you  take the bus, beware of The Little Green Man.

Have a great weekend, everyone. But do not eat too many cookies ...

We went to an exhibition (well, actually, three) at the SA National Gallery on Sunday. How pleasant to stroll through the Company Gardens afterwards. I haven't done that for a long time. Here are some trees for you - a quiver tree, a cypress and a ficus.


(Artist: Nature; Curator: Anairam)
Have a great week, dear friends. Hug a tree.

Bye bye.

A goodbye lappie I made for a dear friend who is relocating back to the United States.

Snous in Stellenbosch.

Laughing her head off at Beezy Bailey's upside-down sculpture ...

... and smelling the roses outside Milieu.

Word for the Year.

My word for the year is:

I would like to take a few courses and workshops, concentrating on acquiring new knowledge and skills, and perhaps polishing some old ones. 
I want to see every experience and conversation as something that I can learn from.
I want to learn from books, movies, situations, people ...
And I want to learn from you.
I wish you all a great 2012!
