LightSpirit Rides Again…



I can’t believe that it has been almost 2 years since I have written – that is the problem when one writes for a living… by the time I have finished writing all day my brain is mush (post toasties with hot milk) and there is nothing left…

Recently though I have kinda been shamed into writing again… or maybe inspired… by a youngster who is just starting out on her “public” writing career and has just posted her first two blogposts… check out her blog, Chronicles of Fae  – I have an idea it is going to be famous one day…

So, quick catch-up….

Wrote for a few online companies, did some other work such as proofreading, copy-editing, proposal-writing etc for various clients and whatever else I could turn my hand to to make a living… I also created, wrote and managed a blog for a friend, SanSaw Kennels, The PEKINGESE Kingdom (and learned a LOT about canines) until she retired and stopped breeding…

I have also, as you may know, been involved in the background with the Little Fighters Cancer Trust (LFCT) in various ways for the past seven or so years… creating and managing/writing their blog, doing translations, writing articles, writing Little Fighters’ stories, writing a short e-book for a pre-school teacher to explain to her toddlers why one of their classmates only had one eye, what cancer is, that they should not tease her and that she is exactly the same as them (even though she looks a bit different), and that she will get a glass eye when she is a little bigger…

In November last year I was approached to take become the PR/Marketing/Fundraising Consultant for LFCT which I obviously agreed to with alacrity as, being a Survivor myself, being a Cancer Warrior is my passion – even more so because it is for children!

I have a love/hate relationship with my job – love doing whatever I can to make things better for the Children with Cancer and their Families but hate seeing them suffer! Childhood Cancer SUCKS!!!

Anyway, hopefully now that I have at least re-connected with my writing I hope to write more often again, so until next time…. watch this space!

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately,
to front only the essential facts of life,
and see if I could not learn what it had to teach,
and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

Happy Women’s Day


Today is National Women’s Day in South Africa, and this post goes out to all the Women of South Africa to wish you a very Happy Women’s Day!✨

Wherever you are today, and whatever you are doing, we wish you a day of Love & Happiness and hope that you are being treated like a Queen by your Loved Ones.

To those of you who are sad, stressed, ill or otherwise not in the frame of mind or space to celebrate Women’s Day we send out Blessings of Peace, Love & Light!

This National Women’s Day marks the 60th anniversary of the great Women’s March of 1956, where on 9 August 1956, about 20 000 women from all walks of life marched to the Union Buildings in Pretoria to protest against legislation aimed at tightening the apartheid government’s control over the movement of black women in urban areas by making them also carry “passes” like black men had to.

Great strides have been made since then to improve the status of women in South Africa, especially post 1994, with women taking up leadership positions in areas previously dominated by men, including both business and political. The National Policy Framework for Women Empowerment and Gender Equality was approved by Cabinet in 2000 and this was followed by a dedicated Ministry for Women in the Presidency.

Climbing Kili for Cancer Kids

Another great Fundraising initiative from Little Fighters Cancer Trust to raise funding to help them with their HUGE task of helping Children with Cancer and their families across South Africa. Please support!

Little Fighters Cancer Trust

Magnificent Kilimanjaro Magnificent Mount Kilimanjaro

Things are cooking here at the Little Fighters Cancer Trust ! Today we are introducing yet another Fundraising Adventure ~ Climbing Kili for Cancer Kids.

Mount Kilimanjaro, with its three volcanic cones, Kibo, Mawenzi and Shira, is a dormant volcanic mountain in Tanzania. It is the highest mountain in Africa and the highest free-standing mountain in the world at 5,895 metres above sea level. [Source: Wikipedia]

Four intrepid hikers are going to take on the trek to Uhuru Peak via the Rongai Route in July to raise Cancer Awareness and funds for Little Fighters Cancer Trust.

The Rongai Route is the only northern approach to Kilimanjaro, and offers a true wilderness experience on the early stages of the climb and a very tough final summit from the north.
