Born with Wings

Visionary Fiction – Book Review

Book Review: Born With Wings by Bianca Gubalke

“I recently finished the incredible work of visionary fiction by author Bianca Gubalke.
It’s one of those rare books that starts off immediately in the spiritual realm. From start to finish, this is visionary fiction at its finest and most bold. Swept up in the tale of incarnation, life, struggle, and purpose we follow the beautifully drawn characters as the author weaves a wonderful tale. An injured gosling and a little girl come together in lush and magical South Africa. There’s a call from ancestors and a drive for purpose, and danger’s never far away.
It’s a captivating tale, a journey of emotions through life, death, and rebirth.”

Piu Piu of Noordhoek

Piu Piu is back!

Incredible, but true, our wild Egyptian goose, Piu Piu, is back! And even more exciting: he brought his mate, Poline! If you followed how the story of Piu Piu started HERE and – apparently – ended HERE, and if you’re an animal lover – and you wouldn’t be reading this if you weren’t! – then you can feel the joy! It’s just too beautiful for words!

Piu Piu of Noordhoek

The amazing thing about ‘Piu Piu of Noordhoek’ is that he not only came to visit us, but also the family who originally found the little abandoned chick! Now how cool is that? Stay tuned as this new story evolves… while the book on the Life of Piu Piu (adventure fiction) – is already going through the pre-publishing channel.

Lots more to come…


Piu Piu of Noordhoek

Piu Piu of Noordhoek

The 20th January was the last day Piu Piu of Noordhoek watched the glorious sunset together with me – this is his last photo! Piu Piu never understood why I did not lift up into the air together with him and fly those beautiful rounds above the valley, far out across the wetlands, the ocean and the mountains… I had taught him how to run, spread wings and fly… and then I never got up above the ground myself! What a fake goose – duhh!

Piu Piu of Noordhoek

He had become a very strong and courageous goose. Besides, it was clear that his hormones had kicked in; he kept listening to voices from deep down in the valley, where the other geese met before leaving for lusher grounds as here the sun had licked up every drop in the dam and the little Piu Piu Pond was fun to dive in but nothing compared with the water and reeds he had experienced so abundantly in the dam.

And yes, there was that aggressive single female goose that came after him; I could not really decypher her intentions. Perhaps geese ladies have to be bad-tempered to be cool following goose etiquette. I don’t know.

What I do know is that on the morning of the 21st of January such a ‘rendez-vous’ took place on the lawn and since then he disappeared. We had hoped he’d return perhaps at night to cuddle his ‘cow’, but no. Oh, he would sure be back in the morning for his early treats… but no. Clear enough, someone or something else has taken over – and despite the pain this truly caused, we hope he’s finally where a wild Egyptian goose belongs, happy and enjoying the thrill of life. We were blessed to experience his first few months, of which I have documented each day. There is a whole story waiting to be edited to go up on YouTube – one day.

Of course, nothing would make me happier than seeing him visiting one day… and who knows? This may well happen!

Have a wonderful Piu Piu Day!

PS: Meanwhile, the novel “Piu Piu of Noordhoek” is complete and being revised! Watch for updates!

Happy Birthday Piu Piu : now I am proudly two months old!

Piu Piu of Noordhoek - Day 40

Piu Piu of Noordhoek – Two Months old

As you see, my feathers have developed perfectly and my once thin and rather wobbly legs are now strong and supporting me well! I still eat a lot of  ‘rabbit pellets’ and I also prefer to sleep inside, on my blue pullover from Chelsea and with my little cow, but once the terrace door is opened early in the morning, I just take off and fly! Sometimes I fly far off into the valley and do a really big round, or I just zoom off to my pond! I sooo much love it! I have taken full possession of it now! I chase away any intruders – be it the hadedas – sometimes five at a time! – or whoever I did not invite! Of course, MadMax is always my friend, we so much enjoy each other’s company! And the lovely dragon flies are always around…

The only thing that really gave me a scare was the big black eagle… he was clearly coming after me and was already very low and I ran as fast as I could – but my ‘angel in boots’ came at the right time – PHEW! That was a narrow escape!

Yesterday, we worked in the berry garden, tending to the blueberries and black berries. When the thought came up to open the tap to water them, I just flew up to the tap and waited, until my ‘angel in boots’ came all the way walking up! I wish I could carry her on my wings, that would be far easier than all the schlepp on the ground!

Perhaps I continue growing… and one day I will!

Have a spectacular Piu Piu Sunday!

Piu Piu of Noordhoek also wishes a Happy New Year 2014 – and as you can see on the picture, he’s making his first flight attempts… yes, lifting completely off the ground and tasting the freedom in the air… and this before he’s turned even 2 months old! Nature is miraculous and amazing… and there’s so much to learn from it!

2014 will be the Year of Reinvention – I like that! So off we go… and who knows, we may just suddenly meet someone we’ve always known ?!

Piu Piu of  Noordhoek –  Day 13

Piu Piu of Noordhoek – Day 13 already – WOO!

Yesterday, my ‘angel in boots’ started my first “flying lessons” by making me run across the lawn like the mad mongoose was right on my heels! Yuuuuih! I promise that – one day – I will fly much faster than she can run! Then we’ll try it the other way round! Yes, I told her that… but she just laughed, saying she was flying already…  So let’s see what she’s up to today? She won’t chase me up the roof next to the messy hadedas, I hope?

She says I start looking like a real goose… what do YOU think?

Piu Piu of Noordhoek - Day 13

Before getting into all that hot flying stuff, I better spend the day in the pond! The sun is lovely this morning, although the mist is already rolling in from the sea. Just right for me…

Piu Piu of  Noordhoek

Good news: Piu Piu of Noordhoek – the novel – is completed and currently going through the editing process.  I can’t wait to see who I was before I became who I am…

Does this make sense?

Anyways, Life is Bliss … and I wish you all a super Piu Piu week!
