Before Now

Last weekend at a dinner party, some friends and I were talking about how things move so quickly and how technology has shaped and changed our lives now.  My friend, Leetil Lauren, said, ‘My grandmother arrived in Joburg by ox wagon, and now she reads books on her Kindle.’  I’ve thought about that all week.

I took some pictures of Joburg last night from Shine Studios in Braamfontein.  Gritty, surreal, a little bit scary, a lot wonderful, imperfectly imperfect Joburg.  I freakin’ love this city.

…And a dead umbrella…

Joel took this picture this morning, just down the road from Main Street Life.  The Rain, the scruffy pavement, the elephant, the umbrella.  Ameezing.

Twenty Second Friend

In town this morning I stopped at a traffic light, looked right and saw this little guy looking back at me.  I put my window down, lifted my Blackberry and took a picture.  He didn’t move at all.  As I was putting my window back up he lifted his hand and gave me a thumbs up. I gave him one back as I drove away.  Thank you for making my day little twenty second friend.

Three moments today when I thought about holidays, love, sherbet, living in a caravan for reals and what it would be like to be a Siamese twin.  Not really in that order.
