Kenya and Mothering

I received this post card from Hollee upon her return from Africa.  Recently, another friend, living on Pender Island enjoyed an exquisite experience of Africa and took some beautiful photographs to record the events.  When I look at the images, they feel other-worldly.  While we grow up with images of Africa and other continents, sometimes the media, while bringing these places close to us through our screens, can exaggerate the distance between places through their extreme differences.
