editor’s letter

(TIAAN’S PHOTOGRAPH: VALENTINA NICOL.) About four months ago my wife and I – with our son Raf, of course – moved into a new house, a change prompted by the fact that we wanted a bigger garden for Raf but, equally importantly, it was a move into a place that embraced its garden and allowed for greater outdoor entertaining. Our previous home, a typical post-war Parkhurst cottage, was perfect in every way, except for the fact (one we realised only after renovating it) that we more or less ignored the patio and garden completely.The patio was beautiful – with its herringbone-laid slate floor and the carefully curated pots of herbs – but overall it lacked personality as well as proper space in which to live outdoors. It was also way…

As a student I stayed in Port Elizabeth, East London, and then Johannesburg all in fairly quick succession, before choosing Cape Town as my home towards the end of 1999. Then there was a time when Cape Town and I almost broke up. In 2007 I decided to move back to Joburg to work at the head office of a major clothing retailer.I’d visited Johannesburg a few times in the years since I left it in 1999, and had a somewhat romantic, nostalgic recollection of the couple of years I spent there as a student, living in mid-to-late-’90s Yeoville, and later, Norwood’s Grant Avenue. But something in me was different when I landed on 16 July 2007. Years of coastal…
