Robbie Williams: Angels

Hands down, Robbie Williams’ ANGELS is one of the BEST SONGS EVER!!! It makes me think of my mother and I can’t help but have it on constant replay. She is my angel and I know won’t forsake me! Below are the lyrics to this amazing song: I sit and wait does an angel contemplate my fate and do they know the places where we go when we´re grey and old ´cos I´ve been told that salvation lets their wings unfold so when I’m lying in my bed thoughts running through my head and I feel that love is dead […]

I’ve also spent a great deal of time looking through my photographs. Below is one of my favourites taken while on a hike to view the Seven Sisters. If you’re not familiar, the Seven Sisters […]

Black Venus (Venus Noire)

Earlier this summer I saw a movie that still haunts my dreams. Titled Black Venus (Venus Noire) it tells the real-life story of a black woman born circa 1770 who was turned into a sideshow attraction known as ‘The Hottentot Venus’. Born Sarah ‘Saartjie’ Baartman in South Africa, she was taken to Europe during the early 19th century and was exploited and exhibited as a part-human, part-animal attraction for both entertainment and educational purposes. And when her “act” lost appeal, she was tossed out on the streets like garbage and eventually turned to prostitution. She subsequently died of pneumonia and […]
