Not understanding the implications of that as a young child, this influenced many negative decisions in my life, leading to self-sabotage. After 30 years of repeating the same pattern, I decided to speak about it and get…

Rediscovered with Kelly Hoffman

She was eight years old, the phone rang. The news broke, so did she. Her idol, her everything, her father - just died. She watched her mom collapse from sheer shock. Overwhelmed by emotions far greater and bigger than her, she stepped outside. Not a tear. She didn't know how…

The Louw Flyer

They say once a horse breathes on your soul, your life is changed forever. I don't remember the first time a horse breathed on me, but I do remember the magic and the absolute conviction that something I could not live without. It is something I've been in pursuit of…

The Grand Café

I remember my grandmother taking me to town with her. We would have lunch together at a posh restaurant called the Grand Café. We would sit by the booth which had the most sun, so it was always warm. We chatted for long, laughed a lot, and she listened with…

The Mantis Monolgues with Kerry Simpson

When I discovered writing and storytelling for the first time, I was around 10 years old when my mom brought out my gran's big old green typewriter. You know the one with those big, heavy, clanky keys that you really had to hammer down hard on? And I remember feeling…

The Ocean of Awareness with Lucy Draper-Clarke

I remember my early years in Sri Lanka, where the serene footsteps of Buddhist monks contrasted with the hooting and chaos of daily life. After 20 years in the UK, I chose to live in Southern Africa, and it was there, on the cow dung floor in the Marico, that…

I See You with Shado Twala

It was in the late 1970s when the Johannesburg city streets were taken over by panga-wielding men who were killing anyone in their path. This was my first experience of black-on-black violence. It shook me to my core, and left me feeling a need for us to rekindle the spirit…
