What a long, strange trip it's been...

First, some thanks Because I'm a writer, I will put my thoughts about this collection in writing. I have so many thoughts and feelings about this project that I think I will make this reflection a series of installments about this experience, which started back in 2009 and 2010 as I planned a trip to Lubumbashi and then made this life-changing visit. So thinking about wrapping up this project feels like wrapping up a chapter of my life.
