This week, Warren Whiteley became the second most likely South African to be blamed or glorified for either the failure or success of the national rugby team. The steady decline and almost demise of the once-mighty Springboks since the disastrous Rugby World Cup in 2015, has been hard even for a reluctant rugby fan like me, to digest.  Especially in terms of what it has done to the overall morale in our country. In his Grade 5 life skills class, - Read more...

Om 'n boek te skryf is nie bloot 'n kwessie van gedagtes in woorde omsit en aanmekaar ryg om sinne, paragrawe en hoofstukke te vorm nie.  Om 'n boek - 'n noemenswaardige boek wat deur mense gelees wil word - te skryf, verg nie slegs kennis van woorde nie, dit verg 'n liefde vir woorde en 'n liefde vir stories. 'n Ware skrywer verstaan stories en om stories te verstaan moet die skrywer mense verstaan.  Annelie Botes is so 'n skrywer. Sy is een - Read more...

Chatterbox by Tanya Watson
“You can talk with someone for years, everyday, and still, it won't mean as much as what you can have when you sit in front of someone, not saying a word, yet you feel that person with your heart, you feel like you have known the person for forever.  "Connections are made with the heart, not the tongue.”  ― C. JoyBell C. - Read more...

For some odd reason I get a deep-seated urge to Springclean our garage in Winter.  Subconsciously, or unconsciously, I equate the dismal weather with the dismal scene facing me as I enter the hoarding precinct. Nothing can be less attractive than half-empty paint cans and brushes left to harden with last year’s pink used on flower pots. If that’s not enough, bottles and spray cans half-filled with poisons to attack armies of ants, cockroaches, - Read more...

Kantlyn | Margin by Cornelle Carstens
Daar is min verskil tussen ‘n openbaring en ‘n openbaarmaking. ‘n Openbaring kan beskryf word as daardie “aha-oomblik” wat in tekenprentjies soos ‘n gloeilampie bokant iemand se kop geskets word.  Openbaarmaking is soos om te vervel. Dis ‘n afsigtelike, dog noodsaaklike proses wat nadat die ongemak daarvan verby is, eintlik ‘n bevrydende geheelbeeld onthul. Verjaarsdae bring beide hierdie prosesse na vore. Een van die vrae wat ek mense die - Read more...

A great paper, one that flies off the shelves and is totally irresistible when you see the front page cover, is the ultimate goal of every one of us at the Knysna-Plett Herald every week. This paper should have a compelling story that you simply have to read on the front page, but it should also have many other elements. News of the town from municipal to crime, community stories glad or sad, letters, schools and sport are just as important as - Read more...

No sugarcoating by Kristy Kolberg
Tomorrow is my 34th birthday. Thirty-four-years…wow! Where has the time gone? I thought growing old will take longer. Now, birthdays have always been special to me and I believe you should be treated like a queen, but seemingly I've been living under an illusion. It freaks me out a little. My friends and I were still preparing for my matric farewell (prom) the other day. What to wear, having dresses made, who to take with, pre-drinks, make-up, - Read more...

Had a visit from two couples we hadn’t met for many years. Although they’re family we’ve remained good friends – probably because of the physical absence. Of the group, I’m the long tooth and considered the wise man, but it soon became evident the wisdom sprung from the three ladies. Not only were they more knowledgeable about world affairs, but also about sport (formerly the exclusive domain of men). Whatever we discussed, they’d pip us with - Read more...

Hierdie week het ek 'n dag in 'n plattelandse hof deurgebring en moes vir bykans twee ure sit en luister na uitstelle voordat die saak waarvoor ek daar was voorgekom het. Almal is doodverveeld, die tolk ingesluit en net voordat slaap ons oorval kikker die landdros almal op. Sy praat Engels, die omie wat in die bank staan praat Afrikaans en die tolk vertaal. Die landdros is ongeduldig want die omie het nie vir sy vorige hofverskyning opgedaag nie - Read more...
