till next time...

I am definately leaving with mixed emotions. So looking forward to being home, saddened by the news of the death of a good friend, neighbour and supporter of this project, Jon Bergvinson. My heart is heavy for Cathy.
The photograph was taken this morning. We climbed the hill above Kabala. We could see the school site clearly. I am thinking of that painful passage from Cry the Beloved Country where Kumalo goes to pray for his son and for Africa. So much beauty and so much pain. So much to rejoice about and so much to pray for. The bricks should be arriving at the site as I write this. The walls should be going up. Blessings all ours and 10 thousand beside. Farwell Kabala.
