Community

“…to know someone who thinks and feels with us, and who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.”
– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Recently, I was fortunate enough to visit the Langa and Gugulethu townships in Cape Town. During my rather brief stints there, I had flashbacks of an often-forgotten chapter of my life during which I lived in the Queenstown township of Ezibeleni before relocating. Watching my extended family and the locals, I was reminded of the playfulness and innocence of youth. But more than that, I was reminded of – and began longing for – the sense of community missing from the suburbs in which I now reside. It is this camaraderie that I tried to capture (and failed, but I tried regardless):
