These flowers are my tribute to spring. The daffodils actually grow just under my back door. Not only is it spring, but the Hot Docs festival is in town (Toronto) for the next week. Last night I saw Mama Africa,
a film about the life, music and political activism of Miriam Makeba. It was a wonderful film about a woman of remarkable talent and courage. Over her adult years, exiled from her country, South Africa, she advocated around apartheid at the United Nations. She achieved fame in the U.S. and around the world with the help and support of Harry Belafonte.
