        Happy Holidays

        Have a wonderful Christmas and a blessed New Year. I know I've been in a funk for a couple of months, but I'm sure I will be out of it in the New Year.

        A word of appreciation to Andrew Heavens of Meskel Square and Sokari of Black Looks for being so supportive during my misery. Special thanks to Andrew for meeting me in Addis in short notice and was gracious to sit on one of those uncomfortable dinky stools listening to my whining. Actually, I was meaning to follow that up with a post about mourning and blogging (how I felt that it was my God given right to write Andrew and Wonqette of Weichegud Et!) It was, however, too fresh in my mind and just the thought of blogging about my loss was tiring.

        I am all geared up to survive the holidays, put kids back to school and start blogging – so help me God.

        The face of VAW

        Kamilat - victim of acid burning The face of VAW - violence against women. It should and can be stopped with enough commitment. Helping one woman at a time is a start.
