I will not be held to ransom, not by the crooked Knysna DA and their associates, not by my own desire for possessions. I don’t have much yet i almost lost most of what i had due to a court case last week. Thankfully, I won but it’s important that i don’t feel that pressure again when i face more court cases (which is guaranteed to happen).
Consequently, i made the difficult decision to giveaway approximately 400 CDs and 450 books. My video camera too (but i can borrow it when needed). My speakers and couch were already given away when i moved 7 months ago.
I was in the music industry so had a killer rock ‘n roll selection, including over 100 South African CDs, rarities as most of the bands have broken up. Most of the books were bought at Hospice and Red Cross, my way of donating whenever i had money spare.. but also because i hoped to one day escape politics and do the things i most enjoy again, reading being foremost.
But i haven’t read a novel this year and i seem to only get to listen to music once per week…
So i let it go of my dust collectors and worldly possessions, the agonising decision becoming surprisingly easy once done. I doubt anyone will love those things as much as i did but hopefully they’ll be used rather than be wastes of my pride.
Advocates may try for my computer equipment again but i will have the legal argument for it being my tools of trade. They also can’t take essentials so my clothes, bed and mini-oven should be safe too. The fridge and cupboard comes with the rental.
Anything major i need in future, at least for the next couple of years, will be loaned from another i.e. it will not be in my name.
I don’t know what will happen in Parliament, with regards my allegations of corruption against our politicians but even if it becomes a positive, there will still be court cases ahead.There’s no silver bullet cure for the situation i’m in as my activism attracts enemies.
So i let go…. so that i can focus better.
