Hilda Smits: towenaar

Julle kan gerus na Hilda Smits se dig blog gaan loer by dignet. Sy is vreeslik goed, nee eintlik is sy briljant.

Ek is besig om ‘n website te bou teen trofee jag (by StopHunting.org) en toe vra ek haar of sy weet van ‘n natuur gedig wat ek kan gebruik. Sy het toe vanself met die stukkie magic vorendag gekom:

die trofees
die koppe teen jou kamermuur tuur glasig uit oor land en wier vas
gemessel sonder graf of steen jou vier mure demp die reuk van reen
soveel fier oe in jou tronk vermink verower die dag rus loodswaar
op sy drie pote maar jy klein man rower van die stom siel was jou
hande in bloed blind vir verstarde spoke snags soekend na reen

Dit het my sommer ‘n knop in die keel gegee. Rerig.

Our Parisian breakaway

Eiffel Tower (Paris, France)As you might have gathered from my previous post, we had a superb breakaway to Paris for the bank-holiday weekend. We saw many of the sites including: The Pompidou Centre, The Notre Dame, The Eiffel Tower, The Sacre Coeur, The Champs ElysTes, The Louvre & The Arc de Triomphe. Paris just has sooo much to offer. I really love this city. Plus the food is, what can I say, French.

This was the first time that we actually used the Eurostar and it makes so much sense. The actual journey time is maybe an hour longer than flying, but in reality it takes about an hour less door to door. Even more so fo us because Waterloo is only about 15 minutes away from Wimbledon (where we live). Check in/out is a dawdle as well. We’ll certainly be doing this again.

Please check out my Paris photos as well. My personal favourite is the guy sitting in his window sill with his kid.
