I recently received a wedding invitation from a fellow member of my art committee. Her daughter was marrying a fine young man from Kenya. In addition to the invite, she also wanted to know if I would assist her in creating the wedding decorations. She was aware that I had an associate degree in African studies and thought it would be a nice touch to have the young man have his roots represented at the nuptials. I jumped at the chance. I had some tribal paraphenalia from my my last trip to Kenya stored and was thrilled to uncrate them and put them to good use. When he saw what we did on his behalf, he literally sobbed and wouldn't stop thanking us.
