Hiatus – July 14, 2006

I’m not entirely sure why I have taken a 5-week hiatus from writing here, but I have one suspicion.

When I first began writing here, my head and heart were full of powerful recollections and reflections about the time in Lui. I was eager to “get it all down” so that others could sense some of what we saw and did and felt and experienced. But as I get closer to telling about the end of that journey, it becomes more difficult to recall and to relate. The more I try to write, the more I become aware that no narrative can faithfully capture the reality of that experience. One just has to be there to understand that world.

Now, with four months having passed since returning from Lui, I am more aware than ever of how poor my words are.

But I'll do my best to try to tell the rest of the story of my time in Africa.
