Muda Mrefu

Writing again?

I have not managed to write since August, since it took less that 24 hours to raise the money for Noel’s windows.  I guess starting a new school year, teaching a new age group, raising a baby, fighting intestinal bugs, going to the bush a couple of times, all that takes time!  It certainly leaves little time to tap away at the computer.

The short rains are late, and so everything is covered in dust.  Our house is at a fork in the Ilboru road, so we are flanked on two sides by dirt roads, and every time a car, Land Rover, or 7 ton Isuzu lorry rumbles by, clouds of dust (as fine as flour) are raised high in the air.  We, along with everyong else who lives on this road, are praying for the vuli, the short rains, to come soon.  Apparently it has been pouring in Nairobi.  We’ll see.
