On Saturday April 19, I’m running my fourth Two Oceans Half Marathon to raise R10 000 for I Am Somebody! – a Cape Town-based NGO that uses nature based Rites of Passage programmes to do profound personal and community development work with young adults.
The monthly InZync Poetry Session has lived up to its name as “the place where the poetries meet”. This month is no different, with feature performances by local and international poets.
