The second corner of the Earth

The life and times of BB

These are the travels and the stories of Ronald Bartels, born a South African.

The four corners of the Earth are where we have been, where we are, where we will be going and where we end up. When I was a baby my parents told me I was attached to my bottle and would not give it up. They concocted a story that they had to give it to the elephant in the Bloemfontein zoo to feed her babies. That was the last I saw of it, but every family gathering they would have great pleasure in retelling the story. never realizing that it wasn't appropriate to retell traumatizing events.

This article was originally published over on LinkedIn: The second corner of the Earth where you can read the full set of stories.
