illustrator of my mind

my beautiful friend Rabbit has not only been blessed with a lovely heart but also the ability to illustrate exactly what is in my head- a good example of this is my business card that she did for me (and if she had a blog, this is where i would post the link) xx

"There are days when spelling Tuesday simply doesnt count."

A.A. Milne- what a biscuit! Currently reading a 1975 copy of "The house at pooh corner". It's really beaten up and in the worst condition but I like to think i've given it a good home after retrieving it from a thrift store for a bargain deal of 5 bucks. It's only 176 pages but I literally am breathing in every page as I spend more time smelling the old pages than actually reading them. It's full of great knowledge and original pooh illustrations which will have to be put up here soon. But for now, I leave you with this, from page 89:

"By the time it came to the edge of the Forest the stream had grown up, so that it was almost a river, and, being grown-up, it did not run and jump and sparkle along as it used to do when it was younger, but moved more slowely. For it knew now where it was going, and it said to itself, "there is no hurry. We shall get there some day." But all the little streams higher up in the Forest went this way and that, quickly, eagerly, having so much to find out before it was too late."

kalk bay- "where everyone has a story"

truly a wonderous place. amongst other things, the book shop is one of my fave's. it's so quiet, still and unassuming. selling the most up to date books in a building older than old. I just wish that the girl who works there would smile once in a while. surely life can't be all bad?

so i'll be on my way.

you're just a boy.
not a man.
and i'm not comming back.

Matthew 6:26

this flippin' lovely window display at Spitz in Cavendish reminded me of it today whilst the fear of never finding a job lay in the back of my mind.

Ok, after going out for nachos with a friend tonight at Cubana I have decided that, contrary to his belief, they are probably on the bottom of my list of best nachos in Cape Town. So if you're a fan of the cheeeeeeese, here's my nacho list of awesomeness:

1.) Fat cactus.
2.) Buena vista social club
3.) Panchos
4.) Spur
5.) Cubana

Yes, that's right, Spurs nachos are better than Cubanas. There, I said it!

Baden Powell Road- 19:34 pm

A mist slowely crawls off of the sea and wraps itself around the fishermen. They sit beside their poles- keeping their distance from the lap of water but staying close enough to hear the tug on the line. "It's going to be a cold night", carries through the breeze as the cars drive between each gentle blow. Their lights are hazy- drunk on the mist. Silouhettes of birds fly above, towards the gold behind the mountain- they are intoxicated by the light. I can smell the ocean.
