Being there.

Such a simple task that means so much.

You don’t have to move mountains, or wear a cape.

You just have to page through your favourite book next to me,

While I lay across from you, watching my favourite show.

Being there.

So simple.

Just make a funny face at me from across the room.

Being there.

It’s easy.

Listen to me while I’m replaying the events of my day dramatically.

Laugh at the right places and roll your eyes on cue.

Being there.

Just do it, don’t think.

Don’t ask, how or if you should.

Sit with me in silence when I’m sad.

Hold my hand and don’t.

Being there.

Just be.

Smile at me,

Give me light when it’s dark.

Scold me when I’m wrong.

Hear me.

Embrace who I am.

Just be there.

And  I’ll be there too.

I scratched at the paint of the memories,

Its colours so vivid.

It itched as it floated to the ground,

Swirls of colours I despised.

 

I began to peel away the new skin I climbed in,

That hid who I was.

I was searching for something to fill the void

And I lost myself in the maze of it.

 

I just wanted to be seen.

I walked away from what I wished you saw in me,

 

Now, I see myself again.

My canvas is blank.

I lift my paintbrush,

I see the colours I love again.

It is beautiful.

It is freedom.

Review- Crumbs and Cream

Imagine you are swinging at the park as a child without a care in the world. The wind is airing your face, you are flying back and forth without a care and best of all you have a sweet, creamy, ice-cream in your hand.

Now imagine this. You are biting into a, sweet, chewy, freshly baked cookie. You taste bits of chocolate, nuts and a comforting oaty flavour. Could it get any better than that?

At Crumbs and Cream, they’ve taken that challenge- wholeheartedly.

As I walked into Crumbs and Cream, I inhaled my childhood days when something sweet provided endless happiness. When I saw the bright shades of hot pink and bright blue on the walls and the stripy rainbow counter covers, I fondly thought of Charlie and The Chocolate factory, and candy canes of course.

Based in Sea point, Crumbs and Cream is situated in the perfect spot. After a leisurely stroll from the beach or after browsing lazily through the many quaint shops it has to offer, making Crumbs and Cream your sweet heaven pit stop, is a great idea.

Although there are clear instructions painted on the walls as to how the Crumbs and Cream treat works, the friendly staff explained that you choose any two yummy cookie  flavours and then any ice cream flavour which will then be squashed between the two cookies and sprinkled with a variety of toppings to tickle your fancy, even further.

I tried the Café Latte flavoured ice-cream, spread with Nutella and spooned between a brownie and chocolate chip cookie and lastly, sprinkled with Oreo dust.

The size of the cookies and the creaminess of the ice-cream made this treat a bit difficult to eat, but once you’ve ploughed away some of the ice-cream, squashing your sandwiched cookies together and biting into it, seems to be the most fun and easiest way to enjoy this special treat.

I would be part of Hansel and Gretel’s story if it leads to Crumbs and Cream…

Besides the delicious original treat that this quirky dessert joint has to offer, slush puppies, single cookies, coffee and other warm drinks are also on offer for those looking for something other than their traditional treat on offer.

The atmosphere is fun and relaxed, which makes it perfect for a short breakaway. This atmosphere is driven by the friendly staff, fun items on offer and of course, the brightly painted swings!

I thoroughly enjoyed myself and felt my stress levels of the week drop to negative one and I swung myself happily while enjoying my ice-cream sandwich.

Crumbs and Cream might not be an everyday treat (unless you are a sweet tooth!), but it is definitely a must-visit and a must-go-back-again.   If you are unable to visit the main store, you can always follow the cookie trail their fun Tuk-Tuk store at The Waterfront.

You can find Crumbs and Cream’s melt-in-your-mouth delights at two locations:

  1. 16 Regent Rd, Sea Point, Cape Town, 8060
  2. A Tuk-Tuk at the Waterfront
  3. Pop-up stores ( follow @crumbscream on Twitter for updates or location)

The sky is painted with hues of soft pink

and the world stands still for a while,

While we whisper and repeat the tranquil sounds .

And there’s the call that brings us back to earth

And our hearts feel contented.

And we rinse our souls of the day’s events

And remember the point of it all,

As we are brought to our knees and humbled.

And our secrets and hopes are spilt from our hearts

as we converse with

Everything greater than ourselves.

And we gather our broken pieces and wounds we

have collected from this life.

And a weight is lifted as we realise this is all temporary and it

will be worth it in the end.

And we lift our hands and ask for guidance on this tight rope we call life.
