Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moment

Twins

For just a fleeting moment

in this everlasting time called youth

I am you and you are me

my brother, you are me

The first summer rain

Our own roundabout

Weekly Photo Challenge

    • Thank you Tom. I write in Afrikaans, which is one of the 11 native languages of South Africa. It is closest toe Flemish. and is derived from French, Dutch and a bit of Malaysian (don’t ask). It’s the youngest language in the world.

      Thanks for stopping by!

        • Afrikaans started off being spoken in the kitchens of Dutch an French slave owners, whose mostly Malaysian slaves spoke it on farms and vineyards in the Cape Province in the late 1600’s. It was a colloquial language which started as a mixture of above languages in practical terms for everyone to understand each other. Therefore, interestingly enough, a lot of our words used from the Malaysian language, are for foodstuffs.

          The biggest contributor is Dutch, with French, German, Portuguese and Malaysian influences. (See the colonial trend?)

          Today it is spoken mostly by the descendants of the Malaysian slaves, who are today one of the most vibrant and interesting groups in SA, and the Afrikaners. Also Afrikaans has a long and dark history and is seen by many as the ‘language of the opressor’, because it is the language that was used by the Afrikaners (descendants of the Dutch and French settlers) to write in Apartheid laws in the 1940’s.

          That’s the long and short of it.

          (Sorry for the overload, I told you not to ask!!!🙂

          Read more here. We that speak it, love it.
