My greatest fear is that I'll never return, like Isaak Dinesen after she left the continent for the last time. At the end of Out of Africa, when the words appear on the screen: "Isaak Dinesen never returned to Africa." How sad is that?!? I don't want that to be my fate. And I'm determined that it won't be. I'll be back. And if I have anything to say about it (and you know I do), I just may stay.
Here's the short piece I wrote last year. It still doesn't do justice to the real thing. I've only visited two of her beautiful countries, but I'm certain I'll love every other one as much as those I've been lucky enough to have seen and experienced. I know there's more out there, hidden deep within the bosom of Africa ... beautiful and quiet and waiting to be discovered ... by me.
Animals Matter. Africa Matters. We All Matter.
