What is your most important word with the letter A? America, Africa, Antarctic? Anxiety, anger, aggression? Automobile, A-bomb, armchair? AFRICA is in my reflections because it is (for me) a reminder to basic feelings: to love colors, dancing, strong emotions. It’s sad, that Europe is blocking boat people, who had the personal courage to escape from bad African conditions, trying to immigrate to Europe. What a loss of chances, to change European lifestyle by learning to express more emotional responses. I adore the “Ladysmith Black Mambazo” project by Paul Simon, who worked together with South African musicians.
