Joy: "I live in Cape Town, South Africa. I am a mother, a web content copywriter and a part-time mermaid. I love taking photographs, walking in the mountains, coffee, the smell of rain and pine trees. I am inspired by my son, the sea and the lives of others."
Ruth:" I left South Africa many years ago and now live in Holland. I love good friends, good photos, good food, reading, my husband and my boys, pottery and snail mail. I am a non-practicing perfectionist, and I think the world is full of beautiful things."
Joy and Ruth think they have known each other since they were about 8 years old, but they may be wrong about that.
