Christmas in July

Sort of...

sunny 32 °C

Hello again!

It is Christmas here in Africa, and it feels more like July than it does December! (Although I am not complaining about the lack of snow :))

Today's post is just a quick message (I am a bit tired from 'partying' till 4 am... Here in Africa, they go till 6 am!) (and by the way, this is not due to a hangover... just in case anyone was wondering...)

Yesterday, I wrote a poem. Much of the inspiration is from the experience of being here in Africa... It has opened up a whole new world for me!
Here it is:

The Human Element

Unlike any other, unique.
Individuality we seek.
But to deny humanity as one kind,
Is to commit the ultimate crime.

That which science cannot reinvent,
it has chosen to forget.
That which medicine cannot cure,
it has chosen to ignore.
That which war cannot understand,
it has chosen to command.
That which countries cannot respect,
they have chosen to reject.

That which cannot be erased,
It is time we embrace,
The Human Element has one fate.

Last but not least: Thanks to all of my friends and family who are reading this blog... or anyone else too! I hope you are enjoying it and that it brings you comfort to know I am safe and sound and having the time of my life!

Thanks for the support!

Till next time,

Jessica (Sena) Blank ;)
