A positive take on a charmed life in an amazing part of the world. MyBrightlife is about simple living in a small coastal village in South Africa – a nation of troubling contrasts and complexities or the Madiba rainbow painting of complimentary combinations – all depends on the headlines of the day which I try to ignore as much as possible. At times tiring and often very frustrating, living here grabs you by the proverbial balls and demands that you engage – which to me is the very essence of life. This blog explores the day-to-day that makes South African society so rich, along with other bits and pieces – family, community, adventure, travel and such, – of my truly bright life…..
So that is how this blog started out – but a couple of years down the line there seems to have been a slight shift in direction. It has become more a record of us,our family and our personal adventures. Dreadfully weary of ‘the personal’ at first – I am now braver and have decided that if this blog is anything at all, it is a personal account of our lives simply for me – the Mom.
