you cannot ever leave completely... nor do you want to...


watercolor

'You cannot leave Africa, Africa said. 
It is always with you, there inside your head. 
Our rivers run in currents in the swirl of your thumbprints; 
our drumbeats counting out your pulse; 
our coastline the silhouette of your soul.' 

-Bridget Dore
from the poem Africa Smiled
