To my sister, Ingrid (from the Norse meaning Fair, Beautiful)
It’s your birthday up in heaven
And I’m wondering what you’ll do.
Will there be a celebration
And some cakes to honour you?
Are the kitchen angels busy
Breaking eggs and sifting flour?
Is the angel choir practicing
As it gets closer to the hour?
Is there ice cream made from snowflakes
And some sweet things made from clouds?
Will it be just you and Jesus,
Or all the happy crowds?
I won’t be there to hug you
Or to count my many beers,
And I’m sure I’ll feel lonely
As I shed some birthday tears.
But I know your heavenly birthday
Will be your best one ever!
Just remember, I still love you –
On your birthday, and forever!
Missing you, now and always!

We live in a world of turmoil.
Here at home, it's politicians vs Jacob Zuma. Today, it's Grace Mugabe, 52, allegedly assaulting Gabriella Engels, 20.
In the USA, there's Trump, Twump and Thump – North Korea, Gaum, fake news, CCN, Russia investigations, KKK! …
In Britain, there's Brixit.
Then there's climatic turmoil, natural disasters, nuclear bombs …
Despite Twitter, Facebook, computers … We have no answers.
Despite modern technology, we have no cures.
My own body is in turmoil. You haven't heard or seen me in a while. Frankly, I'm taking strain.
The pain is wearing me down. My failing eyesight is disturbing. I'm walking with difficulty. My thoughts are not always lucid.
My emotions are a Disneyworld roller coaster ride.
Yesterday, I was better than today. Today, I'm better than tomorrow. Tomorrow, I'll be worse than today!
I'm thankful for every yesterday. I'm fearful for every tomorrow.
But, walls are not the answer. Not for Mexico, not for China, not for me.
Well done Hermann Kapp and Foodlovers Market

I have been quiet for a long while now.
Since I became ill, the last few weeks have been the most difficult. Physically, I am treading new waters. Needless to say, mentally, I have to paddle faster each day to keep afloat.
But I will be back. Watch this space …
