Learning Wolof, Our Czech Painter and Singing with the Inglehearts

23 Jan

1  Last night Daniel gave us our first few phrases of Wolof to learn and we’ve been practising. I particularly like the greeting, ‘Yangui si jam?’ (Are you at peace?) and the reply, ‘Waw, mangui si jam.” (Yes, I am peaceful.) We will need some Wolof as well as French for our trip to Senegal in April.

2  Veronika, our Czech painter (of ColourGirlz) has been here today painting the woodwork in our hall. She is a meticulous worker and is so appreciative of my home baking.  I had made her some of my Mum’s Mocha Crispies.

3  Singing with Claire and the Inglehearts has as usual lifted my spirits even when I didn’t realise they had any lifting to do! We sang a beautiful new piece composed by Claire which was moving enough in its initial learning and will be amazing when we have learned it all. I am so happy that we moved where we did so that our lovely neighbours could introduce me to Claire!

    Sue, I really hope so! It’s to be a prelude to singing Yenamanormanoah but I don’t know whether Claire will be wanting one choir to start it off with the drama of the whole 100 singers following on with Yenamanormanoah. I do think , however, that she has mentioned LiLiLi.

    You’ll love it if we do. It’s haunting and beautiful.

    See you Thursday xx
