No Plan B | Ivan Mashwengane

Ivan sat at the red light, taking the time to re-examine the interior of his brand-new Mercedes Benz S500. The tan leather was butter soft to the touch - and it smelled great. Its light colour was a nice compliment to the pearl white exterior of the powerful car.  He glanced out and up at [...]

The Saffron Road | Avy Bartosch

There’s no doubting that saffron is the most expensive and labour-intensive spice in the world. Remarkably, it is a difficult plant to reproduce without human intervention, and there is no way to harvest the delicate crimson filaments of the Crocus Sativus mechanically. The strands, or stigmas, must be carefully removed from the small violet blooms [...]

Gone Fishing | Bernadette

Serendipitously, there are events in our childhood that subconsciously teach us valuable life lessons and provide treasured foundations for the challenges we’ll face in adulthood. For CEO Administrator in Durban, Bernadette Trichardt, that activity was fishing. “During school holidays, our family always went to the coast to camp and fish. I used to catch a [...]

Plaas Meisie | Yolandi Tinkler

I look high, I look low, Looking for a home in the heart of the country. Paul McCartney Over half a century ago, Paul McCartney moved to rural Scotland to escape the post-Beatles public eye.

The Daring Adventure | Carlien Nienaber

“Her road is the road less travelled. ‘Vellies’ in the sand, red lips, and a glass of wine in her hand - the pureness of her heart mirrored in the sunset. Family and friends as close as she can draw them near.” Carlien Nienaber lives by the mantra, “If not now, when?” For her, life [...]

He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother | Ruaan Heunis

The ballad’s key phrase was originally borrowed from the Boys Town [...]

Fetch and Drive | Carl Ranger

The German shepherd looks lost – out of his depth - way out in the middle of a big Queenstown cricket pitch. He doesn't know where to look. At his owner? The crowd? That stupid dirt-cloud of fleece!? His owner urges him to herd. Commands are shouted: "Fetch" and "Drive." Still, the now-unshepherd German, looking [...]
