I have become a good shock-absorber, cultural or otherwise. So, my life is now an important reservoir of long-standing beliefs, and of fresh, unused experiences. All to be seen in a pleasantly consistent whole, some day. As growth. An African writer who wants to move into a realm of content that exemplifies humanistic expression, wholly involved in the search for spiritual and intellectual heights that are universal.
I am back from our family's South Africa 2010 holiday. And I am an evolving long-distance traveler - Johannesburg to Dubai: 8 hours; Dubai to New York: 13.5 hours; New York to Atlanta: 2.5 hours.
I admit, I do not possess an unbiased eye, and frankly, mimicking passengers at airport security checkpoints, customs and immigration, has worn me out. Yet it inspires a flowering of thought, stories to feed the soul. Slow eater that I am.
Now, the World Cup 2010 Final is upon us: Holland and Spain. And I am routing for Holland!
