Maya Angelou fed other writers her logic, her simple yet earth-moving vocabulary and her generously shared wisdom. To this giant of woman, I can only send countless greeting cards from my heart to the special place she now calls home, thanking her for her influence and congratulating her for leaving a permanent mark on history.

It saddens me to have to come up with words to honour Shakes Kungoane, the South African soccer legend who inspired coach Paul Dolezar to drop this unforgettable quote: “Shakes confuses my players; he looks that way and passes the other way.” What a joy to watch him on the pitch! Shakes Kungoane is no more but he leaves us with smiles on our faces as we reminisce about his glorious soccer moments.
