Upon the sands of the dry riverbed of the Runde River at Gonarezhou, Zimbabwe, beneath the Chilojo Cliffs, I am gifted with an oval stone, worn smooth by hand and water. It is a grandmother stone. For grinding grain. For rubbing over the body. For healing, kneading, softening, soothing.
I sit upon the earth from which this stone belongs as night falls - and see the grandmothers, daughters and women sitting, held in soft light of fire and flame, shadows playing on the rock wall upon which they rest - laughing, speaking of events of day, cradling babies, tending children.
Our eyes meet, her eyes shining dark filled with light.
I see you she says. I see you seeing me. Through time and space we meet here in the distant past. Please remember me and know I am still here.
