Blind and practising bonsai

Post  Jaco Kriek on Tue Nov 10, 2009 7:16 am

I want to pay my respect to a remarkable man by the name of Koos Robbertson. Koos is blind, but not withstanding that he practises bonsai. At a regional bonsai club gathering held recently in Gauteng province South Africa, one of the activities was that clubs had to do a demonstration on a tree to best represent their club logo. Koos represented his club, the Rustenburg Bonsai Kai. Just compare the logo on his shirt with the tree Koos styled and notice how close he came to showing his clubs logo. Koos also attends workshops, exhibitions and goes on digs with other club members. I hope Koos can inspire all of us who can see and often complain.

What a truly inspirational story. Hats off to Koos. And thank you for sharing this remarkable man with us, Jaco.

I'd love to see more of his work, if possible?
