This quote from ‘A poem to our Grandmothers’ has become a talisman for me. And a constant reminder that there’s an entourage of ancestors, guides and angels that move with me wherever I go. That are in service with me, and serve thru me. I do nothing without this awareness. I often think of my grandmother Mam’Tyilibe and I imagine here showing up with her squad of 10 000, saying “come, let’s go serve, we’ll pour our love into this vessel and serve thru him. So when I show up I always remember that I show up as all those people. It’s such a humbling realization. That these people, still show up for me. These are shoulders I lean on and without fail. They catch me. This is a reminder that we’re never alone, never have been and never will. May their light continue to guide out paths. Makukhanye.
