I went to Zambia last January to visit the children at the Mama Bakhita Home and make art with them. It is an experience that I always treasure. The children love to express themselves by painting and working with clay, with no one telling them if their work is right or wrong. What a pleasure it is to see their interactions, and their joy in the freedom to create.

My support of the Mama Bakhita Cheshire Home began in 2002. It is the only facility in the Livingstone area that educates and cares for children with cerebral palsy and other debilitating conditions. To raise money for the Home, during my yearly visits I purchase items at the nearby Victoria Falls Craft Market to bring back to the U.S. to sell.


I am having 2 weekends of porch sales at my home in West Tisbury: July 21 - 22 and August 19 - 20. Please follow the African Craft signs that begin at New Lane in West Tisbury to our home at 20 Road to Great Neck.

You will love these uniquely beautiful and useful crafts, and your purchase will help support young people with disabilities and their families.

So far 4 of our goats have given birth - a total of six new kids! At this rate, the number of the goats we purchased can double in about six months!

Sometimes you choose what you want in life, and sometimes, life chooses you. When my oldest daughter told me she had had a mystical experience at the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, and asked me to make that pilgrimage with her again, I was ready to have an adventure. I had no idea that it would affect the rest of my life, creating an alternative future, both for myself and for a small Zambian community.


I'll be giving a slide show and talk about this journey at three Martha's Vineyard libraries:

Saturday, June 3, 2pm at Aquinnah Public Library

Saturday, July 8, 11am at Edgartown Public Library

Tuesday, August 15, 6pm at Vineyard Haven Public Library

Please join me! It's free!
