The place to expand your mind

Coen Van Wyk

Retired from bureaucracy, I am a storyteller, always ready to disagree with any opinion, question any long-held belief, and seek the good in anyone. I am passionate in fighting for those who cannot fight for themselves, because often that is where the truth lies hidden. In the dark, quiet corners of the world, where people are sure they have no value, nothing to give, nothing to contribute, that is where the treasure lies.
And in the forgotten valleys where animals die of thirst, living creatures strangle in plastic, hope chokes in chemical residues, that is where our happiness will be found.
In a past life I was a pirate, seeking the freedom of the seas, pillaging the rich to buy wine for the poor. Nowadays I wonder if they would not have preferred whisky.
