EVERY week we’re reminded of the fragility of life. Whether it’s in the pages of this magazine, in the stories on our website or in the realities of our friends, family and colleagues. Sometimes people battle with financial issues. Other times their challenges have to do with their health. In some cases, it’s problems in their families and they struggle with the difficulties that come with trying to help loved ones while they have their own burdens to bear. In those moments, I remind myself I should be grateful for being healthy and happy. I’m reminded I should let petty things go and focus on the good because there are so many people who face hurdles I can’t even begin to imagine. When I was younger I used to roll my eyes at…

a real-life guardian angel

WE WERE on our way to visit an old friend at her newly built retirement home on the outskirts of Benoni when we got lost, driving around for more than an hour. We stopped at the side of the road to read a signboard and a delightful young lady pulled up in her car to help. She remarked that we were old and needed to be safe, then went out of her way to help by insisting we follow her. She stopped at an estate to ask a security guard for directions and drove ahead of us for about 20km until we reached our destination. And she refused petrol money. I asked her how we could ever repay her and she replied, “By just saying thank you.” I established that her name is…

THE NAUGHTY PRINCESS Over the years I’ve seen three photographs of Charlotte where she’s cheekily “pulling a tongue” at the public (YOU, 22 August). Kate is a beautiful, gracious, dignified and classy woman – a good mother who long ago should have lovingly disciplined her little girl’s rude behaviour and actions unbecoming of a princess. Every picture tells a tale and the tongue-pulling may be because this little girl has heard her parents speak about the paparazzi in a negative way and she’s making her own “statement” in support of her parents. But this habit should be disciplined. There are many other well-behaved ways to express one’s character, opinions and thoughts. SHAN BRADBURY, EMAIL Sticking one’s tongue out like Charlotte did is bad manners, even if you’re a princess. SYDNEY, SMS KEEP YOUR COOL ON THE ROADS Road…

such a cruel disease

I was drawn to the article about dementia (YOU, 15 August) as I so admire Deborah Moggach’s writing, and was intensely interested in her experience with her mother’s illness. I had a longtime friend who developed dementia in her late seventies. Before she became ill she was a bright, sparkly, intelligent person who’d had a career teaching English and maths to primary school learners. So you can imagine how distraught I was when she became forgetful, even to the point of not recognising her family or her friends. When we visited her she’d say “hello, my dears” and you knew she had no idea at all who we were or what impact she’d had on our lives. Eventually she moved to a retirement village to be with people who could take care of her…

in brief

Northern Cape premier Zamani Saul, you’re an inspiration (YOU, 22 August). How I wish you were in charge of our country. I salute you! ELLA, PARYS If we had more honest premiers, mayors and councillors like premier Zamani Saul, we’d be the nation Nelson Mandela dreamt of. What a good example he’s setting.
