Shadow of the Sun Penguin
'Only with the greatest of simplifications, for the sake of convenience, can we say Africa. In reality, except as a geographical term, Africa doesn't exist'. Ryszard Kapuscinski has been writing about the people of Africa throughout his career. In a study that avoids the official routes, palaces and big politics, he sets out to create an account of post-colonial Africa seen at once as a whole and as a location that wholly defies generalised explanations. It is both a sustained meditation on the mosaic of peoples and practises we call 'Africa', and an impassioned attempt to come to terms with humanity itself as it struggles to escape from foreign domination, from the intoxications of freedom, from war and from politics as theft. The Beginning: Collision, Ghana 1958 More than anything, one is struck by the light. Light everywhere. Brightness everywhere. Everywhere, the sun. Just yesterday, an autumnal London was drenched in rain. The airplane drenched in rain. A cold, wind, darkness. But here, from the morning

"[In the late 1960s] there was a chap called James Norbury, who had his own knitting show on the BBC. I sat in on some of the programmes, and good stuff it was, too.

Sky Mesa Journal Resource Publications
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Jesus told us where he ""lives,"" and that he would prepare us a place there. Is our death the entry point? Must we struggle on, trying to be perfect? At a heavy pain-point in life, Judith was given a summer at an old, run-down ranch. And she wrote. Sky Mesa Journal is the account of a soul's unraveling and reweaving--and the simple metaphors of nature that moved her forward. The birds and beasts and ragged hills spoke up--in paradigm. They told her what she had never really known of that sacred understanding: God's Kingdom. It happens down deep or not at all. This mysterious inner ""landscape,"" she discovered, is the summation of our best intents and dreams and fairy tales, the answer to our hidden poverties, our inexplicable wanderings. The hills are alive! They have spoken! This is the gist of what happened on Sky Mesa Ranch. This journal is about life lived on a larger scale, for having seen the small signposts raised before her. The journal simply tells how it happened for one disheartened soul. It has been many years since that summer; for Judith, nothing has ever, ever been the same. ""During a sojourn at a ranch named Sky Mesa, Judith Deem Dupree sat daily to record not simply what she saw with her eyes, but felt with her soul. These observations, remarkably personal and therefore encouragingly human, are the music she created, solo pieces played before an audience who quickly discovers the harmonies in their own passions, 'not the cheap stuff. . .but something Spring-clean.' What a blessing she is."" --James Calvin Schaap, Author; Emeritus Professor of English, Dordt College, Sioux Center, IA ""In Sky Mesa Journal, Judith Deem Dupree invites us into her journey of discovering the abundant gifts of slowing down, attentiveness, curiosity, and compassion. With the heart of a mystic, Dupree gleans profound wisdom from the humblest of places and calls forth a holy/ordinary way of gently and radically befriending ourselves, one another, and our world."" --Brianna Van Dyke, Editor-in-Chief, Ruminate Magazine Judith Deem Dupree has authored three books of poetry: Going Home, I Sing America, and living with what remains. She founded and directed Ad Lib, a former workshop/retreat for the arts, and created Mountain Empire Creative Arts Council in her home county. Judith taught creative writing at various workshops and conferences before retiring. An avid environmentalist and gardener, she is a fervent observer and blogger of the flux and flow of life.
