Cover your ears!

Can’t Stand Me

What do you find more unbearable: watching a video of yourself, or listening to a recording of your voice? Why?


Must say, I have never done either one of these, but I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that I love love love singing.  I sing in the shower, I sing when I clean house, I sing when I walk and, much to my co-worker’s dismay, I sing while I work.  I sort of go into this zone where I shut out everyone and everyone except for the radio and merrily sing along while I draft reports, track, trace, investigate and analyse.


Fortunately, I know that I can’t sing to save my life and usually nips it in the butt as soon as I realize that there are eardrums around, which might sustain permanent damage at the sound of my quacking.

A couple of years ago, Luke and I sat on the couch watching Idols and I (once again) whined:

If God knew how much I was going to love signing, why didn’t he just give me a good voice to go with the passion?

Luke (about 8 at the time) thinks for a bit and then pipes up;

Mom, I’ve got it!  When God made you he had to choose between making you clever and giving you a nice voice.  Obviously he decided to make you super clever ‘cause you really don’t sing so well.

The things kids say!

I am a free spirit born in the Free State, 20 years to late. I am Ying and Yang. I am the girl next door who prefers daisies and peace rallies, but can just as easily rock at a rally. I love all things Latin and am sure that in my previous life (if that existed) I was Spanish. The dark side of me, however, tells me that I lived in Mother Russia. I am an over thinker par excellence , in constant search of answers to all things that makes us human. What we do and, more importantly, why we do it. I hope you enjoy my rambles and would love to hear from you. If you like it here, please come back, comment and share. If not, let me not waste another second of your time. All I ask is that you respect my space, be constructive and leave negativity at the door. There is enough of that in this world we live in and yes, in my head too sometimes. Not everything here will be liked or agreed with. Some of it will be downright rude, crazy and straight forward. Not everyone will like me and what goes on in my head, but this is my life and my space. Enjoy the ride
