As Above so Below….. The Yoni-verse
AFRICANGLOBE – Imagine a Jamaican scientist being offered US$100 million for a patent, in relation to cancer research done on a local plant. Imagine further that this offer has been rejected because the earning potential for this breakthrough is estimated to be even greater than that which has been offered. That’s not just a hypothetical scenario anymore.
It’s too easy to forget how to be gentle with yourself,
to rest easy in the warmth of a familiar room
surrounded by your own beloved things
It is too easy to forget to use your hands
to give comfort and simple praise
to forget to give thanks
for the miracle of your own skin.
