With new regulations all across the world forcing us to stay at home we seldom have that time where we can go out and enjoy an adventure of some sorts, perhaps even no time. So that leaves me with looking at the past and telling a story in which I was 'free'. If you have … Continue reading Mano de Dios
The beauty in between Above is an image taken on my Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini in the year of 2017. We were on the summit of Mias Poort, overlooking the mountains in the distance. Did we have a permit you ask? Huh, what's that? Anyways, I mentioned that I was using this ancient 'smartphone' of … Continue reading What remains is
There is a film that keeps on popping up in my head. It's called Point Break. I am referring to the latest one, the reboot in 2015. However the one in '91 with Keanu Reeves is not much different besides the obvious signs of a smaller budget.

For the month of April I decided I would challenge myself physically and do 100 push-ups a day. A very straightforward challenge however it can get difficult to do it day in and day out.

Some are more important than others and the older you get the … Continue reading Making the right choice is not enough
Upon reading Genesis I of course 'stumbled' upon the book of Noah. For the umpteenth time of reading it I had this question in mind: How long did it actually take for Noah to build the ark? It took me a while, and technically I don't have an answer, but a rough estimate. In the … Continue reading Landing on Ararat
There are some first impressions in life in which one never forgets. Whether it is for a bad reason, a funny reason or maybe even because there was something different about the moment. In this case, I'm going to write about when you see someone truly breathtaking. Over the years there are some moments where … Continue reading Looking for ‘You’
It's been nearly 2 months but I feel finally ready to write this. To finally put words on a paper. To know what I truly feel. 'Hi Dad.' 'Hey Jonno. I just want to let you know, Mommy died.'
