I promise this new blog on culture, conflict, and causality in Africa will most definitely will include aphorisms that:
Always use the word ‘Africa or ‘Darkness’ or ‘Safari’… And, ‘Zanzibar’, ‘Masai’, ‘Zulu’, ‘Zambezi’, ‘Congo’, ‘Nile’, ‘Big’, ‘Sky, ‘Shadow’, ‘Drum’, ‘Sun’ or ‘Bygone’.
I promise to also remember that Africa:
Is hot and dusty with rolling grasslands and huge herds of animals and tall, thin people who are starving. Or is hot and steamy with very short people who eat primates.
And, I will never forget that:
Monkey-brain is an African’s cuisine of choice, along with goat, snake, worms and grubs and all manner of game meat.
So, here is to new blogs, writing on Africa, and futures filled with monkey-brain.
