the old and the new

In our communities 'ou jaar' is ended off in festivities, family gatherings and going to 'church' at 11pm. Interesting things happen when pa or 'pe' (read 'puh'), daddy ('de') pulls out the old 'kerrim' bord, played on the big black 'drom'. What's this ? Soon however we all leave the Wii and Highshool Musical Singalong, or Mxit behind and we hear 'hy swem', 'kerrim dit!' or 'sit dit op sy bors'. Indeed, we can take from the past and take it to the future..a new inclusive future. May 2008 be a year of synergy between key elements from where we hail, with large doses of creativity, inspiration and hard work towards the lofty ideals we hold dear.
