"Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you....For I am the Lord, your God...." Isaiah 43:1-3

I miss this life every day

waking up to the sound of this bird knocking on my window
sorting beans and rice with Grace
githeri for lunch
kids everywhere 
kids swinging
the smell of smoke, beans and people 
colors everywhere
bright sunny days
rice with stones
hot nights
late night parties with tomato-butter and eggs
new friends
working on the down-farm
lizards on the walls
 sleeping in my room with open door
red concrete floors
 dogs silently walking around at night
the feeling of the dust between bare toes
 kids playing with my camera
wearing jeans and hoodie in rainy days
dinners in darkness
sweet kisses and good night prayers
