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 (Now one of the 7 wonders of the World).


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.


"Happy Mother's Day"

Blog Posted:5/7/2011 11:34:00 AM

Been contemplating on what to blog about for a few days now... 

Figured what better reason then wishing the jewels of creation a 


I am still blessed to have my mom with me and I thank God for that blessing everyday 'cause my mom is my pillar of strength, the one person that understand me even when I don't understand myself..

So here's to all the gems out there, 

the one who comforts even from afar. 

May you be blessed on Mother's Day!!!

Never forget that you are poems/love'>loved

 even at times when you don't feel it!!!

Heya Wilma. Well look at that; your very first blog. And you did your first blog about Mother's Day. Great bio pic....almost looks like a 'glare', but not quite lol. So, are you going to be a regular blogger now? Maybe put up some controversial blogs? Anyway, happy blogging!

Dear Wilma, you are wise to offer your mother appreciation now. I hope you have her in your life for a long, long time, but we need to make the most of every opportunity to express our love. I did when my mom was alive and this has always brought me comfort. Happy Mother's Day to everyone! Love, Carolyn
