Cluck. Cluck. Cluck. Baby Photos.

Here they are. They photos of the absolutely divine Francesca. Oh my. This baby was an angel to photograph and be in the presence of. She would just stare into you. Almost straight through you. Still in between worlds perhaps? I’ll let you judge for yourself.

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela

A tribute to a very special man. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. Thank you.

Amandla!

 

Below are the lyrics to a song my talented husband wrote in tribute to Nelson (or Madiba as he is also known).

 

An African man
I am
Born into a Rainbow Nation
The colour of our skin no matter no
It’s the blood that-
It’s the blood that run

See my history could be better
I have never been much of a reader
but the way I, I see it
We grow all our Knowledge though experience
And I lived it
Watched it as a child every day
As an

An African man
I am
Born into a Rainbow Nation
The Colour of our skin no matter no
It’s the blood that
It’s the blood that run

From a family (repeat)

See for most of his life-time of 27 yr
They Exiled him to an island
out of fear
And they almost almost sent him blind
Through forcing him to dig down, down, down deep in the quarries of lime
For his “crimes against humanity”????
No, No they didn’t see
No, No they didn’t see
What is Unity

He was a visionary
He was a Visionary eeeeehhh!!

Then as as he walked out with his head held high
Screaming AMANDLA!!!(power in Zulu)
With his fist in the sky
Singin’ freedom for all
Freedom, freedom for all (repeat)

Cause we know that everything will be OK
one day
OK OK OK OK OK one day

One day…..

Belly Beautiful – Pregnancy Photos

My darling friend of many, many years has just had her first baby. She is gorgeous. So is the baby! But before we get to the photos of the baby, we must first look at the pregnancy photos. (I admit I was just going to put up the photos of the wee cherub and be done with it – she is adorable! – but I managed some self control and did not hit publish. The post is waiting patiently until we have had time to check out the super spunky mama. Here she is…….
