you so much for sharing this article with us! I wholeheartedly agree with your
sentiments regarding National Geographic’s very sensasionalistic graphic
‘kill’ orientation. I will forward this further!

Built for the Kill is precisely the kind of TV programme I avoid as contaminating. Besides, I hate anything that reflects animal life as "brutal, nasty and short" or depicts cruelty or violence. Still, I can't claim to be going bugs about bugs - I tolerate ants as part of the domestic landscape; some people I know are constantly wanting to eradicate them as dirty (which they are not), like spiders which keep away flies and other flying insects. I found a huge beetle outside my office that had died and been sundried, and I sent it to my granddaughter in the US and she and all the kids at her preschool went nuts over it, so I suppose we should never lose our child-like awe of Nature. But there is a great social and cultural pressure among humans to be 'grown-up' - even teenagers can't wait to be 'grown-up' - and, hell, what a forking waste of time that is - it is like excising part of one's mental capacity in order apparently to be able to think rationally. And we all know where that has recently taken us - into the depths of suicide bombers who only want to be commemorated with their photo as an honourable comrade among others in an Islamic fundamentalist rag sheet! What ambition!
exciting novelist i have recently discovered is Haruki Murakami. You might
enjoy his latest novel, Kafka on the Shore.

Adi Cloete, our friend in Cape Town, who won a Commonwealth Busary to study jewelry in India sent a fascinating letter perfumed with the flavours of India - here is a sample:
at the institute i am busy doing a project with a class of students, that involves beading. the project is to make a bracelet, combining beading and kundan( traditional indian style of setting) : and the theme of inspiration is oriental.... combination of 3 different cultural inspirations! the students love the beading ! and have started to do their own explorations, coming up with some rather fun ideas! also gives me a bit of a chance to get to know some of them better. and i now have invitations to visit just about all over india: i must just say when, cause this one has family in this city, and that one has friends there.... somehow i have a feeling( and a big hope!!!) that this is not my last visit to this wonderful country!we also had a demo from a kardigar( hindi for craftsman) , showing us how to do a kundan setting. quite a process! layers gold foil is gently rubbed around the stone, again and again, and yet again till stone is set! very old technique. very time consuming and patient process!have ordered my own set of tools to do this, maybe in future....
