– a collective pseudonym –
that allowed us to put aside our egotisms, our blusters, our vanities,
and find a group of people whose similar ideals and different talents
create beautiful solutions for a remarkable new world.
that is frankie
wonderfully similar. beautifully different

He remains involved at the University of Pretoria where has given workshops and acted as external examiner for many of the programs, including the ML(Prof) year.
