14 April 2012 – Easterland

Greetings to all of you,

It hasn’t rained yet, but many other good things have been coming down to us. Here’s a basketful of our Pascal benefactions.

Here’s to some order in a world that can use all it can get. From Lucky and Johnny to you.

Happy Easter Season,

    Killing me with that nyama choma shot.

    Hi Martin,

    Double kill – the Star Cafe has shuttered its doors…well, if it had doors…for good. No more beans, cabbage, chapo and chai.

    In mourning,

    Aunty Fiona let us view the photos on this rainny afternoon.
    God bless you all.

    Tina, Abigail and Jennifer.

    Well, David, I don’t think I’ve ever seen an instance where both “fat & beautiful” were applied to a goat, living or dead. Seems appropriate, though & I consider my horizons expanded…All Love to you…Bob

    I enjoyed the pictures so much. It looks like Easter was quite a celebration.
    Especially loved the girls hair — Tina, Abigail and Jennifer, you all look beautiful.
    Love to all,
    Mama Peggy

    Ah, want a wonderful rhythm to these days and photos. Combing through those flat, woven baskets seems like just the right pace for a daily task to have.

    I remember our dear friend Rob Suarez once saying to me as we looked over a too-busy campus and day: “Where is there a place (ie a “time”) for these guys to ever play?”

    That is actually, of course, a very significant grief in the way most school days go now. It’s a joy to see Red Rhino avoid the loss that Rob so wisely lamented.

    Hi Bob,

    I should have added toothsome to the list, too. Sweet meat. I’ll bet Maritza could match it. We’ll see this summer. Fat, beautiful love to you and all the beloved in SD.

    Hi Peggy,

    Easter was great. And now the kids are off for a month. It’s a grand time here. We even got some rain yesterday. Need buckets more. See you soon!

    Hi CL,

    I think Rob would have been an excellent lentil comber, and I will think of him in that process from now on. We’re usually busy, but not hurried, occupied but not preoccupied. When I say we, I really mean the folks who live and work here–minus me. I am often unsettled and internally revved up over one thing and another. But I think I’m getting a little better…kidogo, kidogo.

    I have some good reading ahead of me. Thanks.

    Hi Girls!

    What a nice surprise to find you here…new hair and all! Tell Auntie Fiona well done. See you a little later today.

    Daddy David
