Dziwe la Nkhalamba, Mulanje

Wow! This beautiful picture by Menno Welling, an archaeologist with Catholic University in Malawi.
Heavenly and looking so cool,calm and collected. Myths has it that a "lucky" one would see an elderly man with white hair and a small beard in the pool. Others talk of "ancestral spirits" leaving brand new robe-like clothes and material on the rocks way back then. Such encounters definitely no longer happen although some traditional healers believe a certain rock there is a door to a different astral realm housing a royal family and beautiful place. These beliefs versus science. What a contrast!!!

Tracing footsteps to lead me home

Greetings from the Warm Heart Africa, Malawi.

I'm a Malawian journalist who grew up in many countries including South Africa, Belgium, then West Germany, UK, Washington DC and New York in the US and I love New York.

Trying to come up with the production of my life and by compiling some of my 1000 poems into a book called ‘Tracing Footsteps’ to lead me Home with excellent photography.

I also plan to film award winning documentaries based on the history of this ancient land called Malawi and the mysteries of the Sirius star.

.....watch this space.
