So, this is a blog dedicated to my own journey. Some call it a journey through being an expat, or journey of fatherhood or being a husband… but these are just facets, important ones. But there is more than that to self-identification. I feel like I’m waking up from a dream. One I’ve had for a long time. I can’t believe it’s nearly 20 years ago I left South Africa. I can’t believe my children are 4 and 1and a half respectively. They are incredible, but I know something already, they are their own people. I don’t understand how some parents feel that their job is to fill “empty vessels” They are such intricate people. Such full people and truly their own people.
Yeah, that’s the introduction, bad writing and a weird stream of consciousness, and maybe I’m doing this as some form of catharsis, or maybe this is me trying to improve those skills I never practiced in school. Maybe I’m able to really learn how to write what I’m thinking. Maybe that’s a bad idea… let’s find out together.
