Amid graceful ambience of sparkly faces and anticipation of what was to take place, Friday 20th April 2007 marked the day of the first official launch of Daughters are Diamonds, in Polokwane where I spent the most formative years of my life. A tribute to inaugurate a current project at my alma mater. Life the Journey, is speckled with reflective spots in the shade. Polokwane is one of these shady places for me, where I can often find time to recollect my thoughts, to paint and to write. The programme for the evening commenced at 8pm, at the Office Suites in Library Gardens, arranged by the property magnates, Moolman Group. About 200 guests were greeted in a lavish foyer amid frivolty, soft drinks and book sales/ signing. The response was phenomenal with above 50% sales on attendance, and the discussions engaged in during the Q&A were charged and deeply encouraging. Heres hoping that the momentum carries forth much energy to the string of an author tour ahead!
