look behind you
follow the leader
I’m leaning over
there are lollipops
I have the littlest frown
I see you!
mama’s busy with the farm
rain blocked the way
we jump life’s puddles
we cross them together
today on my back
tomorrow holding hands
The Acholi are hard working and determined people. The women will work the farm during the day, clean up , then carry their produce to market each evening. The young girls sweetly care for their siblings even those still in diapers. What determination we see in those so young. So proud of the kindness of children.
Are you doing the A to Z challenge? Are you determined to finish strong?
We are near to the halfway mark – bravo.
Simultaneity is today’s Napowrimo topic
The Definition of Simultaneity is the relation between two events assumed to be happening at the same time in a frame of reference. According to Einstein’s theory of relativity,simultaneity is not an absolute relation between events; what is simultaneous in one frame of reference will not necessarily be simultaneous in another.
so eager to meet us
always a big smile
a treat would be nice
can you stay for awhile
children so welcome
a great big hello
one word I can say
in their languages I know
In the market, in a small way station, at the petrol station we are always greeted with such kindness by the Ugandan people. The children always have a big smile for us.
Today is week two of great blogging and poetry. Say “Hello” to someone you haven’t read before!!!
chased by waves
blowing up a balloon
hide- n -seek with daddy
chasing the moon
lung for the ball
reach for the sky
wonder on her face
gleam in her eye
We may never figure out exactly what a child is thinking but isn’t it fun watching them?
It’s one week today with A to Z and Napowrimo and I am meeting (as always) some talented and kind bloggers/ poets. Enjoy a month of great writing.
Some must visit blogs:
feet joyfully tap
vocal chords follow
babies wiggle their feet
boys jump in the air
hard not to move to the beat
we’re in church
place in my heart
sun rises with daily greeting
The prompt at the wordpress photo challenge is Smile. Our friend’s boy Danny is a constant joy. We always want to bring him home with us when we leave Uganda.
Alive with color
enamoured by this small creature
smile on her face
We use the puppets named Bethany (butterfly) and Judah (Lion) to help teach our lessons. Puppets have an amazing ability to involve even shy children.
One of the first Acholi words I learned was La Fou Fou (Butter fly)

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal.
