Whither goest thou?

My gosh, it’s been a while!

What to write about? I tap my foot and think.

Holidaying in La Biennale de Venezia and pre-EU Croatia, Helsinki beaches crammed with happy faces, ice cream and days of endless sunshine?

Trayvon Martin (the injustice), gang rape in India, Egypt’s re-revolution, Boko Haram’s massacres, Zambia’s crackdown on media freedom or the US’s ever constricting laws against the right to abortion.

Mandela and memories of the apartheid era? Kenneth Kaunda and Zambia’s collective amnesia?

Royal babies, Swedish or other – the one thing I certainly will not be writing about.
