  1. This is lovely Kari. .The words hold much significance for me. Karen Blixen is really one of the greats! I shared this with my significant person once: “If I know a song of Africa, of the giraffe and the African new moon lying on her back, of the plows in the fields and the sweaty faces of the coffee pickers, does Africa know a song of me? Will the air over the plain quiver with a color that I have had on, or the children invent a game in which my name is, or the full moon throw a shadow over the gravel of the drive that was like me, or will the eagles of the Ngong Hills look out for me?” Karen Blixen. Africa really is like that…and she has the sea wrapped around her almost heart like shape. It is not always a simple place to live; with its sometimes sad history or struggle to survive for so many, but it’s soul and rugged beauty is unique. Have a fine day, regards Marina

    • Marina, thank you so much for sharing all of this beautiful words – I don´t know Africa, but I feel it, I smell it…sometimes we belong to places, to people, we recognize ourselves…we see the mirrors, as we pass by…
      …and welcome to my little room…
