Ubuntu speaks about our interconnectedness and the fact that you cannot exist as a human being in isolation. We are not just individuals separated from one another; what we do affects others which in turn affects the whole world. -Archbishop Desmond Tutu
And still the rains hadn’t come. We were on vacation and privileged to be able to spend a whole week at Umlani. So we were not about to complain about keeping dry. But it speaks to the richness of the Umlani experience that by the end of the week, we too were praying for the rains to start. For our week had taught us that that Ubuntu is not just about humanity but our fellowship with other kinds of creature too. The solidarity of life. And these other wondrous creatures needed the rains to come.
