Charlie's Bird

living the dream with Charlie and Thandi and chirping all the way back to the nest.


…so yesterday morning I went to a breakfast hosted by the local Chamber of Business, and Zelda La Grange was the guest speaker. Man, is she not just stunning! An Afrikaanse boeremeisie employed by our very own Madiba; showing such vision in our young democracy. A move that changed her live 180°.

The message she had was stunning – Madiba was an extremely principled man – discipline, respect of all people and integrity were the ones she spoke about. The examples she used touched me, they were relevant and I was glad to hear stories that buoyed my belief in the old man; and some that challenged me too. One always likes to walk away from a talk like that thinking; which I was.

If only there were a bit of the older Mandela in all of us.

I have heard her on the radio last year. They were doing the crochet square blankets. Very inspiring to listen to, I agree.
