I was born and still live in the beautiful city called Cape Town in South Africa. My view  in the morning includes the magnificent and stunning Table Mountain.

My birthday is on 25 December every year and I self published my poetry book called "Whispers from my Soul" in April 2012.

Writing is just a hobby for me and if someone walks away and are able to identify with what has been said then I am a happy person.

OMW!!! It's been a YeAr!!!

Blog Posted:5/31/2011 2:57:00 AM

I cannot believe this!! It's been a year since I added my madness to the "Broth"... There has been a little sadness and a whole lot of madness!!! Mostly laughter and friendship I have found..

A journey of discovery NO DOUBT, somehow I found my little voice in this huge

SOUP Pot..



I am trying to think what lead me to TPS in the first place... hmmm I just remembered, it was boredom at work.. That made me take the leap into the unknown and I have never looked back!!!

Thank you guys and girls for an amazing journey!!!

Ps: HAPPY 2ND BIRTHDAY Missy Lampshade :)

    Congratulations Wilma!! Time goes by fast when you're having fun. Do you mind if I have some of you're cake too I let my birthday of two years go by without even the first year celebration. I shouldn't have missed that, I won my first PS contest with my first entry. Poetry Soup has brought out a lot of creative work in so many worldly people. Looking forward to celebrating you're second birthday and reading so much more of your wonderful writings. Caryl
