Creative Cookie - Cake-a-phor #3



“She tells enough white lies to ice a wedding cake” 
- Margot Asquith –

Margot Asquith was a British socialite and author, but having grown up in the country side and been allowed to roam free and explore she grew up not being bound by “societies” limits. She was considered a free thinker and often criticized for her outspokenness. I loved this quote from the first time I read it, but having found out a bit about Margot, it seems so much better somehow…



Big or small...a lie is a lie is a lie…and I am a very strong believer that the truth ALWAYS comes out. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but eventually it does. And more often than not, the damage and the size of the lie you tell, is amplified the longer it takes to be revealed.



Little white lies say so much about the brokenness we live in, doesn’t it? Are we a society where you do not feel safe to tell the truth? Or not a safe place where the truth can be heard? Why is truth not the first instinct when uttering a reply? And if we become a people that justify lies and the need for them, who will believe us when we tell the world about Jesus? How will they discern what is truth and what is lie when lies are acceptable and the parameters of when a white lie turns into a proper one are so very vague...? 


Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its 
practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge 
after the image of its creator. 



Therefore, having put away falsehood, 
let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, 
for we are members one of another.



For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, 
nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light.

THE ROAR

Dis lanklaas wat 'n fliek my so opgewonde gehad het dat ek my man wil afvlieg om die uitsending in George te gaan kyk. Die fliek waarvan ek praat is THE ROAR, 'n Frans Cronjé film, wat ek onlangs in Pretoria met die vertoning daar gaan kyk het vir resensie doeleindes. Die film stem so wonderlik ooreen met Nasie se leuse en hartklop...
Die hele fliek gaan daaroor om uit te vind wat jou lewensdoel is, dit raak te sien en om dit te bereik. Spreker, Gustav Gous was ook daar gewees. Hy praat gereeld oor lewensdoel en sy insprake was vir my baie spesiaal gewees. Hy het gesê mense dink hulle het net een doel, maar ons het eintlik ten minste 9 doele wat God vir ons elkeen uniek gemaak/gegee het. Dit was vir my 'n baie lekker ervaring en veral om te sien hoe opgewonde Frans Cronjé is oor hierdie film!
The Roar vorm deel van 3 verskillende films onder die Purpose Campaign. 6 Below wys reeds by lokette, The Roar en Victor is die ander twee en word die 2de Maart en die 13de April bekend…

Hennie Meyer Ceramics

Hennie Meyer is 'n keramiek kunstenaar van Kaapstad. Sy klei-kunswerke wek kalmte, nuuskierigheid en bewondering. 


1.Wanneer het jy jou passie om met klei/keramiek as medium te werk ontdek?
Ek is die jaar na matriek as Rotariër uitruilstudent na Australië. Dit was in 1984. Die skool in Australië het geweier om op daardie stadium ’n “wit” Suid Afrikaner in die skool in te neem. Die enigste tersiëre instansie wat bereid was om my te onderrig was die plaaslike technikon en ook net die kunsdepartement! So ek was baie gelukkig om heeltemal toevallig vir ’n jaar lank ’n diploma in keramiek te kon doen. Die medium het my perfek gepas. Ek het teruggekom en kunsonderwys op Stellenbosch studeer. Op Stellenbosch was ’n wonderlike dosent in keramiek, David Steele, wat my liefde vir klei verder aangemoedig en ontwikkel het.

2. Wat inspireer meeste van jou werk?

Die klei self is die sterkste inspirasie. Klei is ’n wonderlike medium. Wanneer ek met die klei werk is ek baie bewus van die proses. Hie…

The Roar and I

As I sat down in front of my computer to write what is burning in my heart, with that loathsome cape of self-doubt hanging around my shoulders – what makes me think that I’m worthy of sharing my views with the world? – a randomly generated Windows Spotlight Image greets me. Yes, as you can see a mighty lion relaxing in the sun, face into the wind. Powerful and content. I couldn’t help but chuckle and you will soon see why.

The recently released film, The Roar, tells a powerful tale of Louise (Almarie du Preez), a young woman who has to make some important decisions about her future. Not only her future, her destiny. The viewers follow her journey of discovery in the setting of the bushveld family farm and lodge ran by her father, Ranger (Frans Cronjé), who struggles with finding his footing in life after the passing of his wife. Not to forget her fiancé, André (Heinz Winkler), who is not only a pillar of strength to Louise, but her comrade in the day-to-day running of the business as …
