After my grandmother died three years ago, her cousin sent me a book that had belonged to her, “A History of the World”. I haven’t really looked at it since then, but today I opened it up, and inside found a map of the Southwest USA. Inside the map I found a note from her cousin: “I’ve marked the New Mexico towns where your grandmother and great grandmother were born…” Quite fitting, as I will be celebrating my birthday today (though my birthday is in a few days time.) Today is Freedom Day in SA. And so the world turns.
