I am still somewhat in limbo...somewhere in between where I am going to and where I have come from. Literally and existentially speaking. And in the end, it´s really not such a bad place to be, in the very present moment. Everything tastes better, seems more vivid, more tangible. I was watching the clouds today and I could have sworn I saw a hippopotamus floating above me accross the African skies. How lucky to be a hippopotamus and a cloud at the same time.
I spoke to the nurse in my project today. Things are busy and I am anxious to arrive. But I am also happy to be here, watching 60 little African schoolgirls dancing and singing in miniature tailored dresses made out of the most beautiful pagnes. I wanted to take a picture but it wouldn't have captured the moment.
Life is good. Or as someone recently wrote in an e-mail...Everything is WOW!
