I found this blog by Evelyn Rodriguez a while back when I searched for Malidoma Some. She too was excited by his work (see Malidoma Some ). He's an African shaman and scholar/author who's book, The Healing Wisdom of Africa, I was engulfed in. With this book and her blog, so filled with artistic journeying that I've lost in my midwestern years, these kindred spirits are drumming up a whole remembrance in me that was nearly lost in the translation of adulthood. I'm so thankful.
