Life is a Theater, find yourself a role and play along:
On my way back to my US base in California, it was great to participate in the celebration of the beginning of the US holidays, marked by Thanks giving on November 28
. That one of the top celebrated holidays of the year. For fun, I joined the movie crowd and saw two movies in a row that moved me.
As a champion of Women and girl's causes, I was immediately attracted to watch the new generation of the fearless
Charlie's Angles, an action/adventure movie which had the added bonus of being directed by a woman.
their act to save the world, they took on the toughest jobs anywhere - even in the normally male dominated spy business.
The other movie was
Queen and Slim, a romance genre, also directed by a Woman,
a story that can be backed by real life event, where an unfortunate incident of self defense takes a couple into a pain staking journey in search of Justice. Let's not spoil it with the ending, but reminded me of MLKs saying
"the arc of the moral universe is too long, but it bends towards Justice".
Well, when one has watched a journey of injustice so close to the eye, be it in a cinema or real life, and find that justice was delayed or denied, you know in your gut that someone, somewhere along that long journey has subverted it's course. For the trained eye,
such tragedy can only happen due to moral injustice.
In real life, until this is unveiled, the perpetrator goes unpunished.
This later reminds me of our .Africa court case,
which for the past four years has been
in the corridors of a trial justice. The fight has now moved on to the court of the appellate justice. We will keep you updated as major things develop.
Where to during the Holidays?
Holidays are always an exciting period where everyone is
thinking where and what to do.
This year, I will be spending
my Christmas and New Years in snowy Denver, Colorado,
USA among family and friends.
I plan to take stock of what were the great things I have done, overcome, and also the best times I've had for the past 10 years. Then think of want I want for the the next 10 years, God willing .
I plan to suggest to you and everyone around me to do the same
. On Xmas day, we'll exchange notes and provide support and courage to each other and to laugh out loud!. It is a great process to center oneself and allow others to comment on our journey in life.
If you find yourselves around where I am, as always give me a holler and
I promise you a treat of Colorado's best - a taste of craft distillery paired with Rocky Mountain Oysters.
Wishing you a blessed Holiday Season and New Beginnings for 2020 from all of us at DoTConnectAfrica,
