WINTER DELIGHTS

It's nearly the end of June and Bulawayo looks pretty drab and dry. The rains were not good this year, but somehow that winter dryness is always so very special. The jacarandas in the suburbs are losing their tiny leaves heavily. All the gardeners are sweeping furiously on the verges in a never ending battle but enjoying the camaraderie of the collective yet daunting effort. There is however something very comforting about watching them do this laborious sweeping year after year.

Soon the competition will begin as to who will spot the first jacaranda blooms !!

The dryness has its own peculiar beauty, the aloes and succulents are budding now, the beautiful echeverias, kalanchoes and cactus of every size and description, and the bougainvilleas always look their vibrant best in winter.

City sounds change in winter, there are the sounds of different garden birds, the Heuglins Robyn is less vociferous and yet the barbets seem to call more. One of the most evocative winter sounds is that of the red-eyed dove, she softly trills her monotonous yet intriguing call hour after endless hour. Sunset comes early as the shortest day of the year approaches; the brown hooded kingfisher raucously announces his retirement for the night earlier and earlier. Then there is the endless sound of chopping wood, and always the clang of the metal dustbin lids. Other countries have wheelies, or rubber bins or plastic bags, but somehow those metal dustbins of ours seem to be indestructible.

City smells are different too, smells of wood smoke and dry grass, smells of soup cooking and pot-roasts. It's a hazy languorous smell, which comes with the bitterly cold mornings and ends up with balmy radiant sunshine by noon.

The much sought after sunny spots are collective catchment areas for chilly folk, lawns, verges, pavements become somnolent sun traps and suddenly the toasty car is a pleasant place to be. Grey days are few and far between in Zimbabwe, we never suffer from that real condition SAD or Seasonal Affective Disorder like so people in so many countries, two grey days in a row would have us totally confused !! Our dress code in winter calls for the layered look. Coats and jerseys first thing in the morning, one can shed an article of clothing every hour or so, and by midday we are down to a single layer and literally frying. As the afternoon wears on, we start putting out layers back on again slowly one by one.

Aaaah such a tough life in the tropics.......

Its at this time of the year that there is a definite yearning to head for Hwange or Mana Pools or Ghona Re Zhou and inhale the sights and sounds there, its easier to see the animals in winter with less dense bush and the concentration around the less dry water holes.

ROSSINI: PETITE MESSE SOLENNELLE / BERLIOZ: TE DEUM
Friday 29 June in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
Rossini's 'Petite Messe Solennelle' was originally written for just twelve singers, two pianos and harmonium, but he subsequently orchestrated it, and this version for soloists, large chorus and orchestra was given in the Leipzig Gewandhaus conducted by Riccardo Chailly on the 140th anniversary of Rossini's death, 6 November 2008.
After the interval comes a stunning performance of Berlioz's 'Te Deum' recorded in September 1992.

Thursday 5 July in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
To celebrate American Independence Day (a day late, admittedly) Leonard Bernstein conducts music by George Gershwin and Charles Ives, two composers very close to his heart: 'Gershwin remains one of the greatest voices that have ever rung out in the history of American urban culture...

JEWELS
Friday 6 July in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.

Clive Barnes wrote of the ballet's premiere that, 'It is open to doubt whether even George Balanchine has ever created a work in which the inspiration was so sustained, the invention so imaginative or the concept so magnificent...' Jewels will be preceded by Kenneth Macmillan's one-act ballet, Concerto, also pilotless and danced by the Royal Ballet to Shostakovich's Second Piano Concerto. Supper available during the interval.

54 OLD GWANDA RD, FOURWINDS, BYO TEL. 0774096081 EMAIL. bmaacademy@hotmail.co.uk

What a great start to the year for the BMAA and its Fight Team. In February i took a Judo team of eight to Harare to enter the first National Ranking event of the year. My team was a bag of nerves as it took on the Zimbabwean National squad and other Harare clubs, but they stood firm and held it together, taking Silver and Bronze positions in all their weight categories. I was so proud of them, the work they put in, the six nights a week of training for months, the bumps and bruises the skinless toes the cramping fingers and the glowing red ears, it had all paid off. we put Matabeleland on the map that day for Zimbabwean Judo.
With help from Debi Jeans, Pat and Brian Warren the national coaches, our relationship as true fighting venues has done nothing but blossom, all three recognized the talent we had as a team and the potential we had as an Academy and put forward a proposal for the BMAA to get a full set of Judo mats from the Judo Association of Zimbabwe (JAZ), the mats came and the Judo got better and the number of fighters grew.
When the team came back they hit the training even harder, and in March they competed again, this time with even better results, Matabeleland was making its mark. In May they fought again, it was an excellent competition, the standard was far superior to the February and March events, the Judokas (fighters) hit each other hard and fast all day, no single fight went the distance, every fighter was there to win. It was the challenge my team needed, and a challenge the team rose to producing wonderful results.
There are another four National Ranking events this year, and we hope to host the September event, when we'll be making a huge effort to support our fighters on their home soil. contact us on 0774096081 for details.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Mon 1730 Sat 1245
Without any doubt, we have the best BJJ fight team in the country, and look forward to proving that later this year in Harare and next year in PE, where we will fight it out in open events. If you're interested, start training now, this a very aggressive and complex fighting sport, and we're looking to expand our fight team. And having now been given the nod from the IBJJF I will be grading fighters this year.
Judo Wed 1730 Sat 1100
Special announcement; BMAA is losing a fighter to the National team and we couldn't be more pleased, Chase Nel (16) from Petra High school will be representing Zimbabwe in JUDO at the Youth Games in Zambia in December. This young man has turned heads since his debut in February, he has put a tremendous amount of work not just into his fight game, but into the development of a Matabeleland Junior team, and has a very promising future as a fighting athlete. We all be supporting him whole heatedly and wish him well.
In March the Judo Association of Zimbabwe (JAZ) asked me to take over as president of the Judo Association of Matabeleland, and i'm honored to fill the position. It's been agreed that to better serve the Martial Arts; Judo and Jiu-Jitsu (traditional) in Zimbabwe and keep the sports taught correctly and under national and international syllabus that all clubs register with the relevant authority. Any club in the Matabeleland area wishing to be officially recognized please contact me on 0774096081, putting a directory of registered and affiliated DOJO's together can only benefit the sports and the athletes. This is a Zimbabwe wide project, that starts with regional registration.
Judo Juniors,

Dusty Smith, after a great year passed the team captaincy onto Mark Naisbitt at Mays national ranking event, Dusty lead the team through three national ranking events, three Kye gradings, one charity event and he was directly responsible for our first contact with Debi Jeans the National Coach in Harare. we'd all like to thank Dusty for all he's done and wish Mark all the best for his Term as captain.
Boxing Thurs 1700
The boxing is great class, the fighters are very respectful of each other, and because of that they train hard and learn quickly. Having just upgraded my coaching courses we can now officially teach women this wonderful sport. Boxing is not all bloody noses and cut eyes, (although it happens) boxing taught correctly is wonderful for fitness, co-ordination and confidence.
Open MA Fri 1730
This is the chance to come in and use the facilities to go over any of your training, under the eyes of qualified armature fighters and trained professional coaches. Boxing, Judo, Jiu-Jitsu, Kick Boxing and Self defence are among the items covered. Its a great way to end week.

thePoint Power of Presence Seminar 'Awaken a new way of Seeing, for a new way of Being'

With Stephen D. Norval Evolutionary Emergence Educator Awaken - Transform - Emerge

Please join us on thePoint, a 4-day exploration into the Power of Presence and the Science of Expression with Stephen Norval, founder and creator of the truePoint Conscious Emergence Seminar series.

Stephen, who has been teaching conscious transformation for 28 years, guides us through a process leading to conscious emergence: a perspective on Life beyond awakening and transformation. This is a perspective of natural intelligence - how it informs our action and is the source of authenticity within all human relating. This perspective is current, profoundly liberating and deeply encouraging as we meet and deal with the challenges we face in a rapidly changing world, individually and collectively, in relationship to ourselves and each other - personally and professionally.
This is a learning experience in which you will:
Gain clarity of seeing that will empower you with the intelligence of higher creative potentials. Verify your natural intelligence and strengthen your capacity to relate with all e.g. family, children and colleagues. Learn to hold authentic power in a way that empowers those around you to co-create what works. Be introduced to the 'Wheel of Emergence', consisting of the 6 Fundamentals & 6 Imperatives of Conscious Emergence. It is a practical way to engage the action of self-realization. It is the guideline of true integrity and leads to an absolute and authentic expression of the true essential self. It cuts through to the essence of transformational work and is the next significant step in the (r)evolution and emergence of our highest potentials. When we have true perspective we stand firmly in the realm of the unimaginable, inspired to create what is most required by the heart, at that moment, for the sake and the benefit of the Whole. We are directly connected to purpose and meaning, which translates into an ecstatic urgency to contribute to life and the living, by expressing the Power of Presence with an Open Heart. Seeing thePoint of it all - The unimaginable becomes possible! 'Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible and soon you will be doing the impossible.' When: 5-8 July 2012 Where: Bulawayo, Zimbabwe

IMAGINE
Most people will have experienced the pain of a toothache and will agree that it is one of the most unpleasant experiences. No matter what painkillers you take, the pain does not go away. It keeps you up all night, makes concentration during the day almost impossible and eating and drinking anything, unthinkable.
Now imagine if you felt that kind of pain ALL day - EVERY day.
Imagine that the pain has robbed you of your livelihood. You can no longer go out and earn a living to support your family. Imagine that the pain has left you bed ridden and that no matter how much you wish you could get up and run away from it, you can't.
Imagine that even though there may be medication that can ease your suffering, you cannot access it.
Imagine that your loved ones sit day in and day out watching helplessly as you grow weaker and weaker unable to help and comfort you.
Imagine losing all hope and praying for the release of death.
This is the reality for more than 80% of our hospice patients.
After months of battling on, and 31 years of loyal service to the people of Bulawayo, our hospice is faced with imminent closure.
The Bulawayo Island Hospice has no money to cover running expenses nor to pay staff their June Salaries. Furthermore, as stated in a recent press article, acceptance of new patients stopped as at June 1st .
Our local donor base had shrunk -many Bulawayo businesses are struggling . International donors have in most cases diverted their assistance to the living BUT who will care for the dying?
Our hospice Nurses and Social Worker travel over 5,000Kilometres every month visiting patients - administering drugs when available, providing food as it comes in from donors, assisting patients with end of life care and counseling loved ones in their bereavement. We cannot provide full in-house patient care as other hospices do but the little that we can do makes a difference in the lives of the +/- 180 patients we attend to every month.

I ask again: Who will care for the dying?
It sounds so clich d to say 'every person can make a difference' but if we all sacrificed that coke for lunch or that packet of crisps and donated just $1 it wouldn't make too much of a difference to us but what a world of difference it would make in the lives of our patients.
Will YOU care for the dying?

HOCKEY ASSOCIATION OF ZIMBABWE

20 June 2012

PRESS RELEASE

Ram Petroleum / Dharwizi Transport National Hockey League
The Hockey Association of Zimbabwe is pleased to announce that the National Hockey League resumes this coming weekend after a break of seven years. The National League had been a major feature of the hockey season since its establishment in 1970. It was sponsored by Rothmans from 1970 to 1989, and by Lonrho from 1990 to 2000. Thereafter it was sponsored by Saltrama Plastics until 2004. The collapse of the two national hockey Stadia (Mgamba in Harare and Khumalo in Bulawayo) in 2005, coupled with the tough economic environment at that time, saw the suspension of the National League.

The Hockey Association of Zimbabwe recognises the sponsorship from Ram Petroleum / Dharwizi Transport for the 2012 National Hockey League. With this support, and with new artificial pitches in both Harare and Bulawayo, the HAZ has been able to resuscitate the National League, a significant boost for domestic hockey in Zimbabwe.

May I correct an error in your recent posting about the Queen. It was not the Queen who opened the Centenary Exhibition in 1953, but the Queen Mother, who was actually accompanied by Princess Margaret. I was there!

Prior to that the Royal Family consisting of King George V1, his wife Queen Elizabeth and their daughters Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret, toured Rhodesia in 1947. We little Coghlan School children, along with children from most Bulawayo Schools, had to line the road from Government House to Bulawayo to wave and cheer as they drove past. The excitement was thrilling and we couldn't wait to see them. We were given small union Jacks, but after waiting for ages in the hot sun when the open top vehicle approached we were struck dumb and watched open-mouthed, flags down, and then they were gone. What an anti-climax!

King George V1 died in 1952 and Princess Elizabeth ascended the throne, but her Coronation as Queen was in June 1953.The Queen Mother opened the exhibition in July that year.

The Queen visited Zimbabwe in 1991 for a heads of Commonwealth meeting. I was born in Bulawayo, but left 32 years ago, and now live in London. However, when nostalgia strikes now and again I do read Morning Mirrors from time to time and always enjoy them.
Best Wishes

THE city of Bulawayo this morning (20 June 2012) received a donation of three refuse compactors under a programme that includes a partnership between the Bulawayo City Council (BCC) and the German government through GIZ and Australian Aid. The donation was handed over to the Mayor of Bulawayo, councilor Thaba Moyo by the Germany ambassador to Zimbabwe, Dr Albrecht Conze in a ceremony that was attended by members of parliament, councilors, senators, BCC leaders and heads of department, representatives of Non-Governmental Organisations and residents representatives. The compactors are expected to go a long way in alleviating the problems that the city has been facing with refuse collection in the past few years. The programme is an extension of the Bulawayo Water and Sanitation Emergency Response (BOWSER) project which hitherto has been focusing on water sanitation and solid waste.

As mankind fills up every last space of the planet with houses, lights and machines, two additional things will sadly disappear:

10. Darkness (and thus stars). 11. Silence.

So perhaps you should rejoice in Bulawayo's occasional power cuts - if only you could get rid also of:

12. Generators
Yours gloomily
John H.
