Faces of Africa – 13



Her husband died last year and their house was swept away by the rains. She lives with her children and grandchild in their former kitchen, only a bit of land with corn for food. Her son attends the primary school we visited. But she bears her burdens with pride, dignity and in silence.

Posted in Six Word Saturday

Half a century plus one year minus one day

My Saturday in Six Words:

Last day as 50 year old




And what a year it has been. A couple of high & low lights:

  • the road trip to the southwest of the US – the tremendous birthday gift I got from my darling V-man;
  • also the year my youngest son decided to live with his girlfriend in the UK;
  • recently my educational expedition to Malawi, Africa, together with 41 special people;
  • and the year that I have to take this warning sign off my wall.

Luckily my V-man assured me he will still be attracted to me tomorrow. 😉

Have a happy Saturday!
