Caribbean Thoughts

Ghana

Each time I told someone I was moving to Ghana, the response would be the same.

“You’re moving where?”

“I’m going to Ghana.”

“Guyana?”

“No, Ghana …. in Africa.”

“How do you feel about THAT?”

How do I feel about moving to a new country where people
    dress
        eat
            talk
                live in ways far removed from my understanding of reality?

How do I feel about a country that my ancestors left behind
    centuries
        eons
            even light years ago

but where my spirit finds comfort?

How do I feel?
    Excited
        Exhilarated
            Ready for an adventure!
