I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

      I told myself that I wouldn’t write or post for a few days. Seems I can’t res(is)t, haha. But I am trying to relax a bit more until after the new year.
