Why does Buttons look so worried? And have you ever seen an uglier pair of ugly sisters?
We are off to the Zimbabwean Reps production of Cinderella pantomime tonight..accompanied by the grand babies from the bush, who love dressing up and play acting so much but have not yet been to a real theatre!
This show is in aid of Childline Zimbabwe….worthy cause for children at risk, and we will all take Christmas gifts for the Childline hamper. Well done Childline for your endless dedication to our Zimbabwean children in need……
The cast of the Christmas Pantomime:
All family who can be in Harare are going along, first gathering at 214 Brooke Drive for an afternoon of mince pies, and a supper of roasted cherry tomato pasta.
Roasted cherry tomatoes in the pan, slow cooked food at its tastiest, with Olive oil and a pinch of sugar….tomatoes home grown by my brother Steve and sister in law Clare…..
Before we head off to the Panto, Kelli paints Jade and Rayne, they both decide to be Hello Kitties! too cute……
hello, cute Kitties!
The Save Valley Conservancy stretches along the upper reaches of the great Save River in the south east of Zimbabwe. The Gonarezhou National Park laps against the southern banks of the Save River and between these two nestles the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve. These three celebrated wildlife areas form part of the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area, (GLTFCA)- a unique wilderness jewel which is home to the “Big Five” (endangered Black and White rhinos, elephants, buffalo, lion, leopard) and the ”Little Six” (Klipspringer, Suni, Duiker, Steenbok, Sharpe's Grysbok and Oribi). Endangered African wild dogs, Cheetah, Brown hyena, Bat-eared foxes and a host of special birds and plants contribute to the immense variety of this ecosystem. Communities around the GLTFCA contribute to innovative partnerships with National Parks and the private sector, forming a sound base on which to manage social, economic and environmental issues.
This is home to artist and writer Lin Barrie and her life partner, conservationist Clive Stockil.
Expressing her hopes, fears and love for this special ecosystem with oil paints on canvas, Lin Barrie believes that the essence of a landscape, person or animal, can only truly be captured by direct observation.
Lin Barrie states: “Through my art, and my writing, I feel an intimate connection with the natural world, and from my extensive field sketches of wild animals, people and landscapes, I create larger works on canvas.
Lin's work is in various public and private collections in South Africa, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Australia, England, Canada, Sweden and the United States of America. She is represented by galleries in South Africa, Zimbabwe, England, Kenya and Florida, USA.
