walk talk fire food
|youngest son K. making fire with Salaton|
|Yesterday chief Salaton from Kenya came to visit us. We went for a walk, talked a lot, lit a fire together and shared a meal; nothing out of the ordinary, but of course it was quite extraordinary for me and my family to meet this man from another continent and share a moment in time in our backyard. He also came into my studio and touched lots of my paintings and pieces and liked what he saw, which was nice for me.|
As I said, it was special.
The website for his community is www.majimoto.org
P.P. yes, he was cold before the walk and once we got the fire going he was reminded of home....
such a surprise!!!
and as you say so little of the
circumstance of his visit, i am
going to just imagine that he
I have, since i was a child, been
attracted to this part of Africa
and this particular culture. i
would be so honored to receive
a guest from his people. i looked
quickly at his website and need to
go back and spend more time looking.
and yes. i think a fire outside
is one of the most in common things
we have. so beautiful.
thank you for sharing this....
