Oh….I had a huge belly full of baby when I watched this movie and read the book. I recall how hard my belly became, how I worried about the kid I was about to bring into this world before watching and how much more afterwards. Sweet lawdy lawd…

That reminds me I wrote a slave novel (if you can call it that years ago when all I had was words to comfort me, before music). Written in English, Afrikaans and a bit of Dutch. Filled with ghosts, seers, history and time intersecting on one little farm.

I sat with a friend and we played a thought experiment called ‘If we were slaves what would happen…’ And that’s how I started writing. Everything starts with one’s imagination after all…

Anyhoo, here’s the trailer for Beloved.
