My old man sees himself as a realist. He has zero finesse at the bone. His idea of finetuning is running a kind of spit cloth through the barrel of his Colt 45, or measuring and adjusting the gap in his spark plug. He wants the spark to jump far … so it burns clean. I silently scorn his world of dabbling and dealing, of whistling at schoolgirls in skimpy skirts and shooting pool in murky bars, of totting up takings on a Lion matchbox and smoking fat Havana cigars.
I sniff the wispy smoke from under a just-unlidded beer bottle as if it is perfume. I love Parma ham shaved in opaque slivers. I linger in a cinema long after a film ends to ride out the vibe as long as I can. I enjoy arthouse films with their zen endings that hang in midair. I gaze into a lava lamp until I see flamingos and phantoms. I listen to indie folk and whimsical garage instead of hard rock.
All this renders me a moffie in his eyes. A free-verse fairy with a footloose soul. He has a point.
I got lost in the dusty labyrinth of his Latin American mind. All the thoughts I placed on paper somehow became poems … and a play. This is beyond imagining for Zero. He never goes beyond the Cape Flats without a map in hand. He loves to unfold a road map and follow the N2 all the way to Durban with a finger. Then to laugh at my fumbling bid to origami the map along the original folds again. Ironic, for a man of such hazy ethics to be so focused on compass points in a land where booming shantytowns render maps old overnight.
I curse him for exiling me to survive all alone out in Hermanus: boondock harbour town south-east of Cape Town.
Hatikvah: Land Van Hoop
My amigos pity me. And where will I be? In Hermanus, other side of Hangklip, far from the jazzy verve of Cape Town. Jero, my boy, you come from a long line of fishermen. Besides, my other grandfather taught philosophy. He taught in Vienna until Then he sailed for Cape Town.

He was one of the few lucky Jews. Lucky to have eluded the Nazis then. Lucky too to have keeled over before his daughter fell for a Muslim. I tell you flat, my boy, if you want to survive … you have to have something to trade. One hand palm up as if balancing the circle of the wheel and the other with fingers down tapping on his drum-taut gut , he may just remind you of Buddha calling on the earth to witness his moment of illumination.
Sekere boeke moet jy aandagtig lees. Ander gryp jou en los jou nie voordat jy by die laaste bladsy uitkom nie. Pieter Cilliers het my ingetrek in sy kinderjare in. Ek het saam met hom en sy denkbeeldige maatjie Loet aan die rooi koeldrank gedrink wat sy ouma vir hulle in aparte glase gegooi het. Soeker bestaan uit twee dele. The exhibition showcases the most highly recommended books selected by the judging panel Lindsey Stewart Chair , Gerry Badger and Gem Southam.
The book design incorporates braille and blank white pages along with the brilliant yellow of its covers to further emphasise the senses of sight and touch. It is a moving expression of loss — an exquisite photography book about not seeing. It is a handsome, well-illustrated book that discusses issues raised by the work of many previously little-known photographers and provides perceptive insights into the complex cultural mix from which their work emerged. This book introduces much previously unpublished work and the essays by Gochmann and Milroy, in particular, contribute valuable biographical, technical and contextual information which should help open up his work to a much wider audience.
It is an elegant production with a clear layout, combining research in detailed catalogue entries with high quality reproductions that enable the images, although inevitably small, to be easily recognised.

But, because I am using someone elses work, I will give him his due respect, and mention wherever I use parts of his material or even uses his thoughts in indirect ways. Keep this in mind if you read references regarding the person or the book. I will not make such a big reference every time as I have done in the beginning of this post, though. I am posting this in English and Afrikaans each time.
Feel free to read both, if you understand Afrikaans. During the holiday, I started to make an inventory of all the books that I have read through the years. The following list includes some of the books that I have read. It is not nearly everyone, but it is a start. As I continue to go through my books, I will be adding the books that I have read.
Die volgende lys sluit boeke in wat ek al gelees het. Soos wat ek deur my boeke gaan, sal ek byvoeg wat ek reeds gelees het. I started to make a list of the books that I have read in The list is not finished yet, because I made the list largely from the top of my head. As soon as I am going to get to my bookcase, I will edit the list….
Die lys is nog nie afgehandel nie, aangesien ek grotendeels dit uit geheue gemaak het. Sodra ek weer voor my boekrak staan, sal ek die lys hersien….
