His day is done. Is done.
The news came on the wings of a wind, reluctant to carry its burden. Nelson Mandela’s day is done.
The news, expected and still unwelcome, reached us in the United States, and suddenly our world became somber. Our skies were leadened.

His day is done.
We see you, South African people standing speechless at the slamming of that final door through which no traveler returns.
Our spirits reach out to you Bantu, Zulu, Xhosa, Boer.
We think of you and your son of Africa, your father, your one more wonder of the world.

There is a “dagger” in my Heart.

R.I.P Nelson Mandela

NelsonM5The “dagger” turns each time I will Remember You.

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (Xhosa pronunciation: [xoˈliːɬaɬa manˈdeːla]) (18 July 1918 – 5 December 2013) was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary and politician who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the first black South African to hold the office, and the first elected in a fully representative, multiracial election. His government focused on dismantling the legacy of apartheid through tackling institutionalised racism, poverty and inequality, and fostering racial reconciliation. Politically an African nationalist and democratic socialist, he served as the President of the African National Congress (ANC) from 1991 to 1997. Internationally, Mandela was the Secretary General of the Non-Aligned Movement from 1998 to 1999. – – continue Reading on © Wikipedia

Tonight’s post is about two women full of wisdom living in Samburu, Africa. During my journey to Africa, my all time goal was to photograph a traditional portrait of a modern masai warrior, male or female. To my witty luck my wishes were granted and actually had a full on photoshoot with two women from a local village! These two women are single due to their attire and topless features. – – Read more… Continue reading
