I RECEIVED the loveliest feedback on our story about the doctor who charges patients only what they’re able to pay (YOU, 4 July). People were so amazed that someone would do something so inherently selfless and it struck me how little kindness and generosity we see in the world. I’m sure it’s there but it’s not always on display. It doesn’t take much to be kind. To be mindful that someone might be having a bad day. To realise that a person who’s looking a little less than friendly might be down on their luck or have heard bad news or is struggling to cope with a crippling health issue. Sometimes we’re that person and we wish others would just cut us some slack and give us a break. But when we’re…

thank you, my darling wife

THIS is a letter of gratitude to my wife. We’ve been married for 24 years and look forward to our silver anniversary next year. But this isn’t a formal thank you note. It’s a heartfelt missive conveying how much she means to me. Not only did she marry me when I wasn’t too well off, but she helped me build my business to what it is today – a going concern. But that’s not the real reason for this letter. Rather it’s to honour her for her loyalty through good times and bad, particularly when things haven’t gone smoothly. I suffer from bipolar disorder and severe rheumatoid arthritis and for the past few years also ill health. As a result my business has also had its ups and downs. Through all this she’s stood by…

THE ART OF BLACK AND WHITE In this era of fake news, YOU is my go-to source for accurate information – and still has the power to shock me. Take the story Throwing Shade (YOU, 18 July) about some black people who believe being light-skinned is an advantage. This is shocking, not just because of the terrible legacy of apartheid but because it’s now an influential, worldwide celebrity phenomenon, where beautiful black people are using skin-lightening goo that could have health risks. Here’s the thing: as an artist I’ve learnt never to use pure black or pure white paint. Black has tints of blue, red, orange and, yes, even white. Similarly, white is also best used as a blend of different shades, even black. Please, please, forget skin tone. Celebrate your uniqueness. Rather focus…

about meghan and harry

The recent flood of negative stories and the backlash against Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, in the media (YOU, 18 July) are disappointing. The reason they’re trying to keep their child’s life as private as possible is probably a mixture of the sad consequences of Harry’s mom, Diana, being hounded by the media and the fact that baby Archie isn’t an immediate heir to the throne. There are quite a number in line ahead of him. Britain’s The Guardian newspaper recently published an article about the hype around their home, Frogmore cottage: £2,4 million (R42m) was paid by the taxpayer but the property had already been earmarked for renovation. The Sussexes are coming to Cape Town later this year. I hope people concentrate on that lovely positive piece of news instead…

in brief

Peter Bachtis reckons cellphone usage among the young will cause a reduction in the birthrate (YOU Say, 11 July). It seems to me this wouldn’t be such a bad thing. South Africa is overpopulated as it is. INGE, SMS Regarding the letter from the woman who was conned by a foreigner (YOU Say, 18 July): these men who prey on single women aren’t always from overseas. I ended up marrying a local man and was his cash cow for five years. CONNED, SPRINGS To Louise whose son might lose his vision because of a botch-up after his birth (YOU, 11 July): be strong. Renier might outgrow some of his vision problems. I was a remedial teacher for 43 years and saw many kids grow stronger – and a healthy immune system helps. HAVE HOPE, SMS Oh…
