I have set some rules for myself.  Everything I write about is based on a real person or event.  I carry many people with me from my life in Africa and France.  I want to give them voice and only hope I can do them justice.

I grew up in Zimbabwe where I worked as a lawyer.  I left 10 years ago and now live in rural France.  I specialised in human rights with Amnesty International and have worked for them and various NGOs since.  I have five children – 3 teenagers, a 4 year old and a 2 year old.

I will be moving to Canada with my family next summer.

    “rupture my solitude”

    This is a great line! Not what he was likely meaning, but it sounds like a poetic (though painful) way for his lonely seclusion to be broken :).

    Thank you for following my blog! I would love to know more about yours. I enjoyed what I read here today!

    • I’ve been thinking of this old man all day. Wondering if I should try and contact him and knowing that he is looking for a companion and not a hurley burley young family who will leave in summer. He lives about an hour from here. Thanks for visiting and leaving your thoughts.

  3. What an interesting life you have! Amazing!
