About: Nostalgic Reflections. Short Stories about South Africa and Abroad

The short stories I share with you in Nostalgic Reflections: Short Stories about South Africa and Abroad come from my personal life experience. These tales span a lengthy period of time, from my birth and first awakening as a child, through puberty, young manhood, to adulthood. The fabric of these tales is true, but they are also interspersed and embroidered with liberal helpings of originality, humour, tragedy, heartbreak, a smattering of melancholy and sentiment as well as a breath of inspiration and a long stretch of imagination. Some of these stories end abruptly, leaving you dangling, perhaps disappointed and wondering why? This is why I prefer to call these writings short stories: they invite you to participate, to imagine, to experience, what they have to offer and then to finish them in anyway you choose.
