Notes and References

Below are some explanatory notes and references to themes often found on my blog:

Jasper Mouton: A fictional character created as part of the “Fruitful Dark” blog. Loosely based on someone who may or may not have been one of the early Dutch settlers of the Cape of Good Hope. Jasper is a wise person who, being relatively unknown and without a face or history to be criticized for, can say things that I normally cannot say with the same authority without being called out by my closest acquaintances for being highly opinionated. What a man!
