    What if…

    What if there’s a brand new Mother and her newborn baby. What if she’s struggling so much and feeling so overwhelmed and needs emotional support. What if the only place she can find that support is out in the world, where other people live and where emotional support comes naturally, through conversations and daily ongoing’s with other human beings, where…

    Nobody can fix fucked.

    We sit in our houses, watching our screens, waiting for the President to speak, as if he has some sort of supernatural power to make this all go away. This concept of putting 1 human on a pedestal and expecting him to make a difference to our levels of anxiety in a time like this – that’s what’s crazy. What…

    I saw Dave smile

    While browsing through Instagram stories last night, I scrolled past a photo of an old friend, sitting in the Empire Café down in Muizenberg, with a massive smile on his face.

    Goals, pressure, insanity and love.

    This week was a stressful one for me. I’m usually not a very goal driven person. But this past week was different. I had set myself a goal to launch my newest creation on the 18th of July. And with that deadline came a load of pressure… I’m not a fan of pressure. Or deadlines. Or goals. I feel that…
