De Beer Necessities

Fatman on social media:

Writing about the arts and life as I experience it, is my passion. This is what I am doing on my blog which has now been running for a few years.

I am sharing the things I love, that change my life, living in a country that shows its uniqueness best through the arts and the creatives.

And even more.

What I have discovered is that this space allows me to write quickly about the things I want to share, encourage others when possible also to experience something or simply to share insights I might have had because of what I have witnessed on stage, or in the arts sphere – perhaps even in a book.
