The La-La-Nurse Is Back

December is when everything falls in place. My year planner is laid out with holidays, crazy days and work. And I know I only use a day-planner Jan-Feb-March but it makes me feel my ducks are aligning.

I decided to share my one song that stood out as a duck not to be missed: ‘Twee Tasse en n paspoort’. It is a song of belonging: because one is found daily by people around you. This Christmas I will be back in Canada to shake hands with the people who walked the miles with me for ten years. Super excited about seeing snow- hey! I might just offer to shovel someone’s driveway… I still remember the day the neighbor across the road started building an igloo with his frontyard ice bricks collected from a Saskatchewan snow dump harvest. #TheseCanadiansAreCrazy #ThatsWhyILikeThem

This year I am thankful for all the people’s feet I was able to wash. Nursing has opened so many doors for me. Created opportunities to sing, write songs and learn from others and their life experiences. Wow what a journey it has been! And the music has gone beyond to places like Australia, Spain, Italy, England, America, Canada, South Africa… even Katmandu, Everest!

Sometimes just to sit and touch somebody’s feet is everything because it connects you with the world- THEIR world and it is all energy: molecules vibrating.

And as you know it is not over until the last high note is sung(and all the music goes digital): tomorrow is Gin & Jazz day at Die Bôrdienghuis, Wellington. I will be joined by Bram Potgieter and his band. We will be looking for Summer and rainbows. After that it all goes digital🎶.

> Twee tasse en ‘n paspoort –youtu.be/Lbh9-d5S7vU
The song I wrote when we were moving back to South Africa from Canada.
Vers1: Hier staan ek nou
Gebrei deur wind en weer en hande
Gereis oor seë en kontinente (instr)
Vers 3: Hier staan ek nou
Met twee tasse en ‘n paspoort
En ek wonder waar my hart hoort? (Instr)

Koor: Die mense wat aan my lyf klou
-Kom groei aan my vas
-Maak plek vir nog mense
-Voel of jy altyd hier was
Dan soek ek ‘n antwoord
-Is ek die –
verlore seun, verlore mens
Gevind deur jou?(Instr)

Vers 3: Hier staan ek nou
So gevorm deur my mense
Wat kom loop hier deur my lewe (instr)
Vers 4: Hier staan ek nou
Vetrek met taxis en `n vliegtuig
En dis vir jou wat ek vaarwel wuif (instr)
Brug: Nou bly jy in Duitsland
En Liezel in New Zealand
En ek bly in Kanada
en tussen ons is seë

Vers 5: Hier staan ek nou
So geanker deur my mense
Wat kom loop hier deur my lewe (instr)
Vers 6: Hier staan ek nou
Met twee tasse en ‘n paspoort
En ek wonder waar my hart hoort? (Instr)

Koor: Die mense wat aan my lyf klou
-Kom groei aan my vas
-Maak plek vir nog mense
-Voel of jy altyd hier was
Dan soek ek ‘n antwoord
-Is ek die –
verlore seun, verlore mens
Gevind deur jou?(Instr)
