Akuaba, Jena and Me

This image is a replica of the Akuaba doll of Ghana. The Akuaba is found among the Akan people and represents fertility. As a matter of fact, a woman would carry this doll on her back to assure pregnancy and to assure the attractiveness of the child. This is my own Akuaba doll that acts only as a model for my photo. Besides, my wife has not agreed to carry it on her back.

I've been working on a few things lately and they are all keeping me busy. Teaching is great. I learn so much as a teacher. Actually, I would be better described as a "lead student." I hope that you all are doing well. My prayers go out to the six young men and their families down in Louisiana. I also pray for all who went there to support them and for their journey back home to be a safe one. Peace~
