I recently discovered this video of Vanessa James and Morgan Ciprès ice-skating to Disturbed’s version of The Sound of Silence – please, watch it – it’ll make your heart soar! It’s the music and the silent gliding of their skates on the ice, interspersed with applause. It’ll leave you smiling.
Last week Che and I were still in KZN and not able to blog daily, so I decided to post a daily photo telling a story about our day. All taken with my iPhone.
On our way out of the Hluhluwe Game Reserve, we got some good sightings in a short space of time. One of those sightings was this trio of zebras out for a leisurely walk. I think we startled them a bit as you see in the video below.

It had been a while since I’d been to the Durban beachfront. I remember many happy holidays strolling along it with my family, stopping at all the vendors wanting to buy all they had on offer and running towards the ice cream vendor before he cycled away in search of groups of kids tugging at their parents’ sleeves, a clear indication that no trip to the seaside was complete without this treat.
It’s been such a daring experience so much so that all I’ve had time for was to photograph interesting posters stuck to the back of toilet doors. You know when all you have time for is to take photos of such things?
In any event, the daring poster above which someone dared to pin to the back of a toilet door set me thinking about what I have dared to do lately.
So I have to come clean…I wasn’t learning how to yodel but the .gif looked cool and I wanted to include it. But the part about only being able to take photos of posters stuck to the back of toilet doors is true. But only the one above.
It feels like someone has flipped the crazy button on the world and we’re on this crazy ride for who knows how long.
So all we can do is dare…
…to do the right thing
…to live in the moment
…to overcome adversity
…to love oneself
…to love everyone else
…to block out negativity
…to not watch the news channels
…to digitally detox
…to spend time with family
Have you dared lately? What kind of daring have you dared? What else can you add to this list?
