Of Land, Sea And Sky

Length

11 Hour & 58 Minutes

Description

Ordinary people can have very interesting lives whether they are famous or not. This autobiography has the added insight in that the audio version is read by the author. Of Land, Sea And Sky was my first book. It started life as a testament for my daughter, but grew from a simple autobiography to encompass much about the various activities I've been involved with on the land, on the water and in the air.
There should be something here to interest anyone and I gave it the subtitle 'escapades of a modern day adventurer and entrepreneur'. It's all there, from relationships to business, from dancing to skydiving, from car racing to sailing and more besides. Not least of which are narratives about people I've come across on my journey who have inspired me.
A follow on book about my latest adventures to be called 'Mostly Of Sea' is in the planning stage.

Latest Poem

My great grandfather was a Slave

My grandfather was a Native

My grandmother was a Bantu

My mother was a kaffir, Nigga, Negro

Names imposed by shackles

But an Afrakan I am

An identity my forefathers were deprived of

 

An identity I am now polluting with the fumes of cigarettes

In dope I am giving it another face

In ecstasy I am giving it a comical image

My drunken stupor gives it an unstable belonging

My borrowed accent contradicts what it represents

My imitated dress code conceals its beauty

My adopted religion undermines my intellectual prowess

My language deafens my ancestors

My values are valueless

My mind is discriminatory

It repels anything indigenous

Whilst absorbing all that is alien

None can identify with me

Even those I am emulating

Patriotism I reserve for my kind

I look down at my patriots

If I were xenophobic

I could have been my own victim

I pride myself in my slanted inferior education

An education promptly deleting my true history

Ignorance is my custom

I am dreaming dreams my forefathers cannot interpret

I am singing praise songs for my dying culture

I am branding a heritage

I cannot inherit

Knowledge of freedom is embedded in my subconscious

But suppressed by fear

Fear to develop my culture and identity

Fear to be rejected by the world

Fear to be different and still love myself

Yet with no identity I remain
