But to step off a 100-foot pole, not knowing, but having hope, and carefully not having a high expectation, there is so much excitement and thrill in that, a little adrenaline too. But that is just me, you only live once, so making it a life worth living, the worst that can happen is that you do in fact get hurt, but all you got to do is pick yourself up and move on, that is how we learn to live, and is too what makes life worth living.
So how do you step off a 100-foot pole, with care, with courage, and enthusiasm? You either want it or you don’t, you either get it or you don’t, but at least you will know that you tried it, and that you lived it.

Are we afraid of the wrong things? You cannot say that so generally because you do not know what it is that any person at any given time is afraid of.
There are many things that we can be afraid of, and then for the wrong reasons. I think that we are only afraid when we have reason to be afraid. I know that I am only afraid when I feel unsure or have no knowledge on what is just about to happen. There have been so many defining moments in my life, where I have been afraid – going to America just a year after 9/11, almost a week to date that myself and 9 other friends flew over, we were afraid, but it was that ‘what if’ kind of afraid. What if the plane blew up? What if we were held hostage? What if nothing actually happened? And nothing happened we were just afraid for the wrong thing – I learnt a lot about myself on that trip, and we all learnt a lot about each other. Boys get scared too.
I went to New Zealand, flying via Singapore, on my own, I was afraid not afraid of travelling so far on my own, but afraid of meeting a man that was not part of my life for nineteen years, and now wants to be part of my life. I’m afraid of what my life is going to be like once this man is part of my life. Is being afraid of that wrong? I don’t think so because I don’t know what is in stall, but because it is a journey, and learning journey, I think that it is fine to be afraid in this case, afraid to discover the journey – no I am going to embrace it.
We are not as we do but as we choose to be at any given moment in time. Yes, sure the things that we do define the person that we are, but those things that we do come as a choice, we think before we do, so what we are is not what we do, because sometimes we do what we do because it needs to be done, to get through and survive so that is what we needed to do.
We are not what we do, on a technical note, there are many people out there that are teachers, technicians, drivers etc, and they are not what they do because they are not enjoying what they do, they have no passion for what they are doing. If you are doing something because you have to and not because you have a passion for it, that is not what you are, therefore you cannot be what you do.

it can take you places you would never have dreamt of,
it sometimes stresses you out but most of the time it is magical,
it can make you calm and relaxed
all in an instant.
Then, when I'm laying on my bed and I feel the breeze come through my open window
and I feel the cool blue breeze flowing all around me.
When I'm standing outside looking at the night sky,
staring at the stars that are twinkling everywhere,
and I feel a wind that comes and whisks over my faces,
like a stream of silver that sparkles in the night,
together with the stars, it is amazing, and when it's about to leave
it sure to take a piece of me with it.
When I'm walking on the mountain, I look over the city and the city's wind
comes over me, like a flash of bright yellow infused with an orange burst
and strangely enough the city and myself feel at peace
all over again.

If I were the boss, the first thing I would do is take a vacation off the coast of
“What! There’s no harm in dreaming…”

I must be honest that I was quite dumb downed to our music industry at one stage; until my friends dragged me to La Med one evening and told me that we were going to see Goldfish live – I had never seen them so excited before, and was totally confused as to what all the hype was about, that was until Goldfish performed, I was blown away, and by the end of the performance was totally taken in by them. I am now a Goldfish fan, even owning their CD; I think that they are an amazing band with a difference, some really fresh instrumental sounds, that really get you going. I am also an avid listerner of the Parlotones, GI, and the Rudimentals, to name a few.
Our SA bands have their own flavour, bringing something fresh to the constipated music industry – you write one song and then have two or more remixes along with it, and that is the way artists make three times the profit…
