Decorative border Title: Lehua's Tales

"Writing is neither profession nor vocation but an incurable illness.  Those who give up are not writers and never were.  Those who persevere do not do so from pluck or determination but because they cannot help it.  They are sick and advice is an impudence."
  Hugh Leonard (passed to us by Patrick Noakes)


Wakeful Morning

We don't forget, thought Mma Ramotswe. Our heads may be small, but they are as full of memories as the sky may sometimes be full of swarming bees, thousands and thousands of memories, of smells, of places, of little things that happened to us and which come back, unexpectedly, to remind us of who we are. And who am I?
... who is there to write down the lives of ordinary people?

"... the sound of subdued yet excited chatter began. The tragedy was being turned into a story. Before much time passed the story would be worked and reworked by subsequent tellings until it became legend. Storytelling was the way humans assimilated tragedy, made of it a thing that, instead of defeating, became strengthening: a cautionary tale, a teaching story, a rallying cry for the troops, a builder of pride and a sense of brotherhood."
