‘We can’t live here anymore’

This is the headline about a father’s sentiment about his two young children who luckily escaped with their lives, after being bound and gagged, while mother nipped out to get some baby food a few minutes away. For viewers outside of this godforesaken Rock, I should explain that this crimeRead More

Exploiting the ‘dummy’ market

The ‘dummy market’ is about exploiting people who don’t know, don’t think and don’t explore options – for whatever reasons. They find life is too complicated, too short, and everything is too much effort. They want it now and they don’t want to think too much about it. They’re unableRead More

Balkanwood!!

Balkanwood? Like Bollywood nuh. Well – as some may have figured, the Cap is not one to be limited by original culture, race, mentality or whateverrrrrr…. I am as unapologetic in exploring new cultures, as I am of new ideas. But for those who know me personally, this apparent ‘flexibility’Read More

There is a video floating around on Facebook and Youtube that has caused me serious annoyance. Silly! The first thing that 99.9% of you will go is “Awww.. how cute.. that kid surely loves her dad.. how nice”. I responded to it quite sternly on Facebook – and you wouldn’tRead More

Thought for tomorrow

“What you are must always displease you, if you would attain to that which you are not.” – St. Augustine.

Helicopters

I was walking with a friend by the sea. As we walked we were talking about how important it was to identify things one really wanted to do in life and to set about achieving them. I told her how much I loved helicopters and wanted to ride in oneRead More

Doxiphemia, to Introduce Myself

I have always enjoyed accents and the sound of different words and languages. I have a habit of unconsciously repeating words I like to myself to enjoy their taste and feel and to fix the sounds in my memory . Perhaps it’s as a result of this that occasionally aRead More

His songs will never die – Rafferty

Almost all of the songs by the late Gerry Rafferty have been and remain my favourites. Ever so often I revisit the clips on YouTube. It’s so strange sometimes when a singer and the song, seem to resonate with part of your being. It’s like a horoscope – not veryRead More
