Black History Month Specials

Black History Month is special for me this year. It’s the first time I’ve managed to catch some of the shows in the Afrovibes Festival. A troupe of South African artists who come to Britain bi-annually to share there considerable talents with us.

I saw Rainbow Scars at the MAC and was stunned by the quality of the writing and performance. I took part in the Q&A session afterwards in the Township Cafe – the Arena Bar South African style. I went along to hear what other people had to ask and ended up asking most of the questions myself.

Met the delightful Sandra Hall of Friction Arts and discovered new possibilities for performance spaces.

I was gutted that I wasn’t able to make it to see award winning band The Soil and all female group Mamela but I need not have worried. They were performing as part of the end of Afrovibes party at the Drum on Saturday night. And they were amazing.

It made sense to take in Rhetorical, a play based on Thabo Mbeki’s speeches while he was president of South Africa. Not a moving as Rainbow Scars but touching in places.

It was a feast of a night as I’d also arrived in time to see a ballet performance of Flat Out (a community dance programme).

By the time I staggered home in the wee hours of the morning I was happy that the clocks going back would give me an extra hour in bed.

I’m planning to see Solomon and Marion at the Rep next week.

Becoming a numerologist

It felt like I was pulled to the Tree of Life Festival at the weekend – despite my reluctance to make it a priority. Having applied twice for a free ticket and not been successful I’d put it out of my mind. Very late on Friday night I realised I had, indeed, been granted a free ticket.

Exhausted from the night before I didn’t make it till after midday – but it didn’t matter because the people I’d been drawn there to see were not speaking till the Sunday.

Listening to Nicolas David Ngan talk about using numbers to decode your soul contract using your birth name (i.e. on on your birth certificate) was fascinating.

But it was Sonia Ducie and her use of numerology to analyse dreams that drew me to the training courses offered by the Connaissance School of Numerology.

Their certificate and diploma courses offer just about everything I’ve been looking to learn about numerology using an esoteric approach.

When I explained to Sonia Ducie that the numerology section of this blog gets the greatest hits, and that the information there is taken from Numerology Gems she said ‘I wrote that book.’

Did I need any more reason to sign up?

The certificate starts on the 17th November. I’ll keep you posted on how I get on.
