Have been getting alot of these lately. While I do appreciate the feedback from people, I find them rather odd in that they mention nothing about my work so it’s weird for me to have people sending me such mail. I love all the people who come to my space becuase they appreciate what I do, who feel inspired and aspire to be whomever they want to be through my works, really I appreciate that. But this is odd :

My experiences at the National Arts Festival

I have been out of this space for some time now. Life has been taking me to different places and have not really had the time to sit down and express my thoughts as I would like.

As it is I am at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape (EC). I have been here since the past Saturday and after helping my friend out with her thesis we will head home. I am beyond tired as I have been running around like crazy :). I am well though so I am not complaining.

I am here as a delegate for the WordFest, which sees novice writers, experienced editors and publishers in the same space in an effort to develop, hone and improve the skill where possible as well as to give strength and encourage one another.

The trip has exceed any and all of my expectations in that it exposed me to a varied network of creatives in literature, language specialist and all different types of books. The knowledge gained here I can never be thankful enough for.

I managed to find a store here called ‘Under The Arch’ which  is now selling my jewellery line. It is located at the gate of Rhodes University, EC. So now whenever you are in Grahamstown you can always go there and ask for Miss Understood Jewellery and Nadine will be happy to assist :) .

The WordFest also afforded me the opportunity of showcasing my 12 minute documentary on spoken word (Poetry), Unspoken, much to a delighted audience. This has motivated me to press on as much as I can as an expressive activist and storyteller.

I don’t think I will get less busy, instead where I can I will make time to share my thoughts with you. I really appreciate that you still take the time to visit my space and read my ramblings.

There are new key developments however, more of that when things are concrete.

Remember : Success is a journey, not a destination. Stay free.



Miss Understood makes it on the Daily Dispatch (News article)

Hi guys,

You may or may not have heard about this. A local (Eastern Cape, SA) newspaper, the Daily Dispatch wrote an article on yours trully.

I thought I’d share it with you so for those of you who never got to read the article yesterday, here is the link :

Maximum Love,


Life, Peace and Blessings

Music is so much in my head right now, it fascinates and scares me. It’s like everywhere I look I see it. In rainbows. Isnt that the craziest thing you ever heard? I keep thinking not to lose focus and I cant really tell if I am or not. Weird vibes. Normal for me I guess.

Im trying to learn how not to be under pressure and I dont know if its working. I suppose time will tell? Who knows.

I am here now and life is unfolding as it should.

Life, Peace and Blessings,


…the Essence is in YOU… by Unathi Magubeni

…trust your dreams, they have chosen You as much as you have chosen them…all knowing is within, there is no out there separate from what’s
within…You are connected to the Source,be humble and let the Supreme within You reign…believing is reality and reality is existence…all is being revealed to You now; honour the present, it is a gift…all of these things are happening to You now, smell the flowers and marinate in the glory of the moment…anxiety creeps in when we spend too much time in the perceived past or too much time in the perceived future and create a perceived gap of uncertainty; remember, both have no reality of their own outside the Now…presence is virtue…the timeless is in the present, be rooted there…external sources including me can only point at the truth of the meaning; but please know that You are blessed Now…the general direction your life is taking presently will lead you to the desired outcomes…please always remember that the magic of life is now and not in the perceived future or past…both past and future are projections from NOW; they are both halo effects of the now…never underestimate the majesty of now…never underestimate the human spirit, especially yours…just like the rays of the sun are not separate from the sun, you are not separate from the source…be conscious in being…humble yourself to the force that carries You…the journey is within and the master is You…

the story of being


Strongly needing to revisit this…thought I’d share…

In the beginning there was hunger and hunger was hungry for desperation. At the time desperation had been walking the dry kalahari desert, searching and searching not forgetting to look every plane for longing. This went on for centuries. Meanwhile longing had been sitting at the oasis of yearning. Now these four had never known each other yet each knew that they were searching. Then came along Word who had long observed. He knew all the four knew. At this Word spoke and said :Unite! Indeed it was so. Word saw that it was good and manifested himself in the combined four. As a new creature they all decided to give themselves a new name which shall name, identify, combine and unite them. The name was Being. So Being lived a good life going and doing as he pleased.

Yet , always when he was asleep he would have dreams…
