Another day for laughter and another day for tears. I found out last night that the lady in the middle of the photograph passed away last year.
Mea was the Pastor's wife at Boera Village and she spent her time leading a women's group that would get together during the week and just simply engage with each other. Some days it was craftwork, some days it was simply tea and cake, some days it was consoling a loved one that had passed and some days it was full of joy and fun.
But it was the same when we would visit, Mea would always make room, make space, stop things and start things so that she could offer her voice, her smile, her warmth.
