CHALLENGE YOURSELF: EAT, PRAY, LOVE IN BALI: THE BATTLE WITH GRINDYLOWS … FINDING NEMO AND THE MERMAID

Raising children = fear. For their safety, their wellbeing. We try to protect them, keep them safe, shelter them from harm. But in
the process we may not realize that we are unwittingly passing down our own fears and anxieties — whether it’s a fear of
something tangible like airplane travel, dogs, heights or anxiety over something less concrete like social skills. Younger children
react to what their parents do and say — whether these are good habits parents want to encourage, or bad habits they
don’t want to install.

(Grindylows are water demons that appear to us from British folklore. They were water demons that liked to wait in cold water for a victim to happen by – usually a child. When a child ventured into cold water, the Grindylow would pull him into the water with long fingers and drown him. It is thought that the Grindylow was invented to keep children from wandering off into dangerous waters…)Read More

DIVORCE: CHALLENGE YOURSELF – FLYING SOLO, BALI… EAT, PRAY, LOVE

Early Saturday morning. My car, the parking lot at the Mall. Couldn’t remember how I got there. One of those days… when
you don’t see… don’t hear… don’t feel. I wandered, looking listlessly at… thoughts elsewhere, far from the beautiful decorations. Stared unseeingly at displays in windows… magical beaches, palm trees, laughing people. Wondered fleetingly when last I laughed unpretentiously, spontaneously. No escape from… a sadness that enfolded… engulfed… overshadowing all joy… all happiness.

Hours later – found myself in the smoking section of the Spur.. on my 5th cigarette… staring in utter horror at the air-tickets in
front of me. A return ticket to Bali. Booked, paid. Flying in less than two months!!! What have I done!!! Have I lost my mind. Read More

CHALLENGE YOURSELF: WE HIKE WITH THE SAN … AND A FEW ANCESTORS…

(Note from author: The Shoreline of the San is a hike of not more than 17 km per day at a relaxed pace. By no means the marathon time in which I attempted to complete it. It is well organised and Silent Steps went out of their way to make it a most enjoyable experience.)

1981, 1h00 in the morning… from Kuil’s River to Stellenbosch. Me, in long evening dress, high heels, very cheerful. Hiking!!! Needless to say…. it had nothing to do with any road from Hell to Health!!! With no cell phone, Uber, 911…HAWKS to rescue! My last hike.

Now, a millennium later, my 2nd attempt…. 70 kilometers… Eland’s Bay to Strandfontein… The Shoreline of the San. It was mentioned by a friend… kept haunting me. This is what you need….meditating, clearing your mind, your thoughts… re-organizing life, finding your senses…. Mainly… a battle with yourself!!!Read More

I cannot take this anymore. The least HE could have done is fix the sinking ship before leaving… But NO.. couldn’t get away quickly enough!!! Now I’m sitting in this dump with a handyman that’s fast becoming a family friend… costing me a fortune. NO, NO, NO!!! It’s time for Hanlie D.I.Y to rise from the dead…Read More
