Family is Energy

For more than a week, the waters of our creek Oko’pia have been chalky. Villagers say each time this happened, an animal (Atah – Alligator) is digging away at the source. I don’t know where the source is and honestly if I knew I wouldn’t go. 😐

Our farm lies further away from the village, and we always cross Oko’pia to get there.

Yesterday we went to dig up yams, and I got these images.

Now it’s almost time to go back to town. Work will resume in a few days! I had fun helping my family on the farm and seeing good old friends. I feel refreshed and revived for work. Family is energy! 😌

I have a piece of advice for everyone this new year: Never forget your family and good friends.
