To shine out like shook foil...

--Gerard Manley Hopkins

Requiem: Habb Nelson

(excerpt from, “End Of Years”, by D’fils)

…and then I write his poem, thanking him for thanking enough…

It was 16 years ago; we were burying a youth named Clayton. When the time came for eulogy and reflections an old man got up to the mic and told his quivering voice-story about a grandmother who had passed, and how he had thanked her many times for all her kindnesses while she was alive. He ended his reflection for us with: ‘I am sorry only that I did not thank you enough.’ And he sat back down next to me, and I looked over at him, unshamedly crying in wonderment of his words.

And I cry still for the many children I have loved who took the time, while grace lingered, to live my learnings and to thank me enough. For just one of their 'Thank Yous' was always enough.

Brian is a special friend of mine. He and I have been writing together for several years. Even though he lives in Uganda, our correspondence has been very long and prosperous.

Brian Duncan Kiige now resides (as of September 2012) in USA and is finishing his Masters.

In his own words about his book:

"If you have ever thought of a book which could cause a positive change in your life, then read my recent book LIFE ISN'T A GAME BUT A REALITY , it covers all aspects of life, what can you talk about in life which isn't in this book???"

In my own words about him:

He has always called me Mukisa, which means 'blessing' in his culture. And that I have been to him. Though he has meant much more to me, and many more words and in many other ways, I support this 'son' as I have my many other 'sons'. Though he and I have never met physically--God, willing, that time can come, we shall enjoy all that our two lives have meant to each other. What a day, that.

My colleague and I were entertaining how to get our students interested in their future… we determined, 'we would need a past…'

I'm met a baby at one of my graduations I attended this past June. I said, "Hi! I see you have a new baby brain." He smiled back at me, his tiny palms tightly surrounding air as if he knew now—after only two month-moments of breathing--that it was air that was to be highly prized and that breathing and air worked greatly together. He just held his fists on both sides of this little tyke of a body and kicked his legs vigorously at me. And I googled again toward him, "And you smile. Good. Keep smiling, it'll make your brain grow. And don’t forget to smile at all the bugs and all the toys and all the frogs and all the books and all the girls and all the buses; then your brain will keep growing until it is a man-brain, and then you will certainly do a lot of good in this world."
