Today one of the comments today on the OneLove web site was from someone who initially asked for help to break up with her married lover. She wrote to say thank you to my site readers for their support and advice, and mentioned that they helped give her the strength to break up with the guy.
Statistics of people who visit the sites I work on are nice. But few things can beat a personal note of thanks, from an individual whose life you have affected in a positive way. So yeah, this morning I feel warm and fuzzy, despite a hectic schedule, lack of sleep and self-created stress (parts of the writing is not going well because I'm overthinking things:-).
Anyhoo, if you're somewhere in Southern Africa, watch out for a series of 10 short films that's going to b broadcast on national TV stations as part of the OneLove Campaign. Each 30-minute film depicts a slice of life and speaks of love and desire, secrets and lies in a time of HIV & AIDS.
These Love stories, showcase films from Swaziland, South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique, Malawi, Zambia, Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Tanzania and Namibia. All films have English subtitles.
They have already begun to broadcast in Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Lesotho, and will broadcast in South Africa starting on Wednesdays from 17 March 2010 on SABC1 at 20h30.
Anyhoo, please let me know if you end up watching the films and tell me what you think about them.
Also got a load of photos from the Kwanda Klothing team, who recently went to the US and had a "trunk show." The show was a success, and I'm going to publish the pics on the site in due course.
