Renostermaan… Ek was die eerste keer uitgenooi na ‘n Renostermaan (Vrouemaand, 2018), waar ek niemand geken het nie. Ons was ‘n klomp vroumense saam in die bos, na ‘n naweek is ons almal vriende daar weg! Ek kom as ‘n reel baie in die veld. Eks mal oor diere en buitelug, het nog altyd bosvakansies verkies.

Around January 2016 a cow on this specific project of “Renostermaan” (Rhino Moon) was shot by... Read More

Renostermaan tydens Vrouemaand – Augustus 2018

Wat ‘n ongelooglike ervaring om deel te wees van iets wat so groot impak op jou siel kan laat. ‘n Vriendin van my het my voorheen vertel van hulle ongelooflike ervaring tydens ‘n Renostermaan dat ek nie twee keer daaroor gedink het om te gaan toe sy my uitgenooi het na die Augustus Vrouemaan Renostermaan (wat ‘n mondvol, maar...
