Ghoera deur Hennie Aucamp Afrika verse vir kindersImage

Hennie Aucamp se Ghoera met illustrasies deur Zakkie Eloff Is ‘n digbundel waar musiek op die voorgrond tree. “Die titel, Ghoera, dui op ’n primitiewe musiekinstrument wat deur die Boesman, Khoi en Koranna gebruik is… Alhoewel Aucamp in die subtitel na Ghoera verwys as “Afrika-verse vir kinders”, bied dié verse ook baie pitkos vir volwasse lesers. Die omdigtings van mites, verhale, sprokies en fabels spreek universeel tot die leser. Die panteïstiese ondertone in die gedigte in tandem met die sangerige aard daarvan raak aan ’n kosmiese bewussyn, gevoed deur die oorlewering van oerwyshede.

Unnatural Alliance Israel and South Africaby James AdamsImage

He shows how both states, for different reasons, became estranged from the international community and how in their isolation, they found unexpected common interest.”

May 14 – 24

 

May 14, is also Dance Like a Chicken Day. Also known as Chicken Dance Day, the goofy holiday celebrates the silly dance that is accompanied by the Chicken Song or the Chicken Dance Song.

Image result for chicken dance

“The chicken dance is a goofy, but fun party song and dance”

The song, sometimes also known as the Birdie Song, was composed in the 1950s by Swiss composer Werner Thomas. Accompanied by a series of movements, the song soon became popular in the West, especially in the United States, where it was performed at parties and weddings. The dance mimics the movements of a chicken and includes flapping of arms and wriggling of the body.”

May Day -Workers’ Day

1 May is a public holiday to commemorate the working class – the cogs that keep the clock ticking! Also Known as International Workers’ Day the holiday is widely celebrated, with as many as 80 countries honoring the date and what it stands for.  Historically it started with a striking workers protesting in Chicago, which resulted in law officers then proceeded to fire live ammunition at a defenseless crowd of unarmed strikers (sound familiar?). This public holiday serves as a stark reminder to governments of the power of the working class, but there is little to celebrate if you take the high unemployment figures, political chaos, and criminality in mind. But change is coming, as seen by the break-up of the  tripartite alliance, new unions, and public groups joining hands in mass protests. A   promising outcome is the court ruling against the recent nuclear project. 

There is a Chinese curse which says ‘May he live in interesting times.’ Like it or not we are living in interesting times. They are times of danger and uncertainty; but they are also more open to the creative energy of men than any other time in history.

 Please see our books available that reflect this phase in history:

Easter Blog – Books

Easter Sunday is one of the most festive events among Christians worldwide. It commemorates Jesus Christ’s resurrection from death, as written in the Christian bible. But he consumerist version of Easter – the one with rabbits and eggs  might be a money-spinner, but it does bring families together and reminds us to have a bit of childlike fun and festivity especially when  life is full of fears and the world feels upside down and politically chaotic .

If you’ve been bingeing on chocolate (like I did), try to detox and start eating foods packed full of fibres, protein and healthy fats into your diet. This will help to subside cravings and get your diet back on track and repair the damage done by an excessive amount of sugar.

It also brings out the humour in current situations as this cartoon depicts our situation:
