my thoughts on whatever comes to me--including cravings for iyan and egusi soup--as i write.
this, "tekere", is my favorite song by the marvelous salif keita; i dance (sitting, standing, lying) whenever i hear it. and the women in the video make me proud that i am one of them. watch the one at the 4:26 and 4:55 marks--she knows she's got it. and it's so good to have it. the confidence of her body makes me smile...
