god saw eye

-- child's poem: aged 5, pictured god in the shape of his big toe, unintentionally convinced by Gori-Maamy, big and good and fat grand-aunty; so,warm and kind ,he was convinced she was god in disguise, and he never misbehaved, around her. When Gori-Ma prostrated(sijda in prayer on her mu's'allah), her shape in burkaha paralled the 5 year old's big toe, bent, bowed; 'twas was the queerest, beautifullest thing, as god was; like Gori-Maamy

...for that reason we (may) pray without cease, "rab'bi zidni ilman war zuqni fahman."

Karen demure

fortunate to journey to the UK in '73, at 16, to complete school, there, people, measures too countless to enumerate, the hydra of the apartheid beast. What glares through the complex haze of that ageing young mind:  my English peers bar none swam, a legal requirement incumbent on schools(i was told at least at mine; think they were conning me?) to ensure that by age16 every student water-safe. To expect the fine nuances of a system of forced racial/class segregation to be savored by anyone who hasn't lived it, I found to my detriment to be ridiculous; far easier it was to allow ridicule on a genuine bewilderment at a soul from a continent, S Africa was the continent, of sun, water & Outspan oranges. Not so stark, perhaps, if they'd also not heard of the Springboks( rugby, earlier bewilderment: South Africa, rugby! Absurd man, just play!). In the context of swimming, even they knew that someone brought the Outspan oranges, Karen Muir ( On my flight back home 3 years later, reeling with things still to pass, I had a window seat, and savoured the privilege
