DIE OU VLAG

En Die Vlaglied nou wat ons as kinders so uit volle bors gesing het?  Mag dit seker nie meer sing nie. Sal hopelik darem as versagtende omstandighede gereken word by vonnisoplegging as jy betrap word dat jy die wysie net neurie?  ——————– Nooit hoef jou kinders wat...

RAAISEL VAN GEVEERDES SE BADJIE

Een van die raaisels van Sabiepark het verdiep.  Hoekom, wonder ek, verkies die diere om uit die klein voëlbadjie neffens die watergat te drink? Is die watergat dalk nie so aanloklik en gerieflik soos ons dink nie? Die water is in elk geval presies dieselfde. Tokkie...

KOL-KOL KERK TOE

van die vreugdes van ‘n vakansie in die bos is die Sondagbesoeke aan die karaktervolle kerkie in die personeeldorp met sy duursame inheemse hout oral, gewyde atmosfeer en natuurlike omgewing met ‘n reuse-reuse koorsboom by die een ingang. Aanbidding saam met die...

KLIPKOP, KOEBAAI

Seker so ‘n stuk of 60/70 keer in ‘n tydperk van twee dekades het die Honda (‘n 1999-model CR-V) die 500 km tussen OR Tambolughawe en Sabiepark heen en weer kafgedraf. Johannesburg was sy basis vir die Van D’s se bosvakansies. Sy staanplek was by Klipkop Car Care (in...

HIER’T, JOU VULLIS!

Roep hardop:   “swartmamba” of sommer net  “imamba” in een van die ander landstale. Kyk hoe skrik mense hulle oor ‘n mik. Gewaar jy die vreesaanjaende dierasie al-op-eens hier vlakvoor jou, is die skrik dalk nog groter. Met sy hoekige kop soos ‘n doodkis, vurige...

DERTIG DAE IN WILDEVY 154

Op ‘n galop is die eerste maand van ons wintervakansie van 2019 verby. Ons begin al vliegtuigroosters kyk. Wil nou weer Nelspruit ons basis maak. Maar darem eers die Laeveldse winterweer vir nog ‘n maand of wat geniet. Natuurlik was die eerste twee weke die lekkerste...

EEN AAND 50 JAAR GELEDE …

Die media is, tereg, opnuut gaande oor die maanlanding 50 jaar gelede. Op 18 Julie 1969 het ’n totaal onverwante insident op Chappaquiddick-eiland die VSA se geskiedenis waarskynlik oornag op ’n ander koers gestuur. So meen historici. Ek skerp graag die geheue daaroor...

BEELDSKONE BAAI

Vreemde woorde in vreemde tale – “magnifico” in Italiaans, “imposant” in Frans, “wunderschön” in Duits en allerlei verwante uitdrukkings van verwondering  in ander tale –  het skielik vir my betekenis gekry waar ek, op die dek van die MSC Musica die intog in die Baai...
