Some-one says that the whole human world begun from Africa.

And some claims that all humans are from somewhere other place...

Sorry for my error, Bill.
I wrote "I have my vote" instead of
"You have my vote". The theme of this kukai was "afrocentric" and not "egocentric" :)
Best regards, Iris.

Thanks, John.

Tikkis, thanks for the ku.

Thank you, Juliet.

Gillena, your comment means a lot to me.

Don't worry, Iris, I had interpreted your intention correctly. But "afro-centric not ego-centric" is delicious.

I like line three ("from home to home") very much!

The reader (well in this case me ...) can feel the strong tie,

Best wishes,

Good to hear from you, Angelika, and thanks for the visits.

When an Irishman says "home," he always means Ireland, no matter how long he's been living somewhere else.
