Zululand, my beautiful home!

To many, Zululand is a place whose story does not mirror their own
To us it is a place we are proud and blessed to call home,
Despite all its challenges; poverty, disease and illiteracy.

We take comfort and pride in knowing that wisdom gleaned pre-colonial times has stood the test of time,
Our fields forever fertile
Our people just as beautiful and interesting beyond the colorful masaai beadwork
We need no photography, for our images are beyond beautiful
Nor theatres for our daily lives are theatrical;
Unrehearsed
Unscripted
Full of Tragedies—Personal and Collective
Disappointments
Achievements
Homour
Life
Love
Hope
It’s a place where a child is raised by a village,
For we are one people

Here we roam at will, and marvel at the history of our Kings,
Heroes and Heroines;
Jama,
Senzangakhona,
Shaka,
Cetshwayo,
Dingane,
Mpande,
Mkabayi,
Nandi,
Dinizulu,
Zwelithini,
Mkhosana ka Mvundlana Biyela,
Gala kaNodade,
Ndlela KaSompisi,
Ntshingwayo kaMahole Khoza,
The mighty Zulu regiments; Ingobamakhosi, Uve, Ukhandampevu,
and many others….

I’m yet to find a place that blesses and touches my soul like Zululand
A place whose drumbeat draws one into the pulse of Africa
Even if we have nothing
This place gives us everything!

With this, Happy 2015 and I hope you join us as we dance away https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQmRG0cUaJc
