Greetings from Johannesburg, South Africa. Although I have a doctorate in psychotherapy, my main passion is advocating for nonhuman animal rights. I condemn all cruelty to nonhuman animals and therefore follow a vegan lifestyle. I would like to connect with other animal activists from all over the world. The fur trade is one of the most abhorrent practices on this planet. Innocent animals are subjected to prolonged suffering for a trivial fashion item. As the chairperson of Fur Free SA. we campaign towards ending the global fur industry. This might not happen in my lifetime, but even if I leave one footprint behind, that is one step closer to the goal. This blog is a forum to discuss all aspects of the fur industry. It also raises issues around animal activism in general. Johannesburg is a crazy city and I need to escape from time to time. This photo was taken next to the magnificent Zambezi river.

For a while now, there has been a buzz about the plight of bees. The number of bees, essential to pollinate plants that supply the world with food, are declining.

This Feel Free Friday post focuses on this year’s comrades marathon, which has just passed. Held in South Africa, the comrades marathon is an internationally recognised ultra-marathon, 90 kilometres long. Every year thousands of participants take on the challenge of running this marathon.

You might be wondering how this links to bees?

Well, this year one special Rastafarian, Farai Chinomwe, ran backwards to raise awareness about the plight of bees. This is quite a feat, as it is difficult enough to run this race forwards let alone backwards.

Farai is a bee-keeper himself and I thank him for drawing attention to bees in this way.

BTW: There is a vegan blogger who “joggles”. This is juggling while jogging. Check out his blog @

    This is a really worrisome problem. The “services” bees provide to us are worth somewhere in the billions of dollars. Thanks for bringing this to everyone’s attention, and thanks for the mention. What a race that is, and backwards? Wow!
