Deeps has been a young woman that has been interesting for me to get to know through her blog. Interesting and always enlightening. Her spirit of Ubuntu comes through in the words that she uses in such a loving and genuine way. She is a person who expresses her love, devotion and loyalty to others without flinching.
That being said, Deeps is also deeply private in many ways. Even though she posts her thoughts and feelings in her posts, she keeps a bit of herself close, not wanting to give it all away. She needs to build trust with others, but once she has built that trust, you have a person who is loyal and a friend for life. I have that feeling about her in only getting to know her through the blogging world……
Deeps has had to face some pretty serious, and frightening events in her life and her country. Events that I cannot even imagine. Yet she perseveres….. she gets angry and frustrated in how others feel the need to commit violence, but in that I also sense a real feeling of hope, that all is not lost, and that the world will get better and be peaceful.
Even though Deeps likes to travel, I think that she likes to have a home base to come back to. She enjoys adventure, and sees every day as having an opportunity for learning, growing, and then sharing with others. She also has a great sense of humour and likes to have others laugh…..
Deeps is also a deep thinker I believe; and, I think that she reads many of our blogs without commenting; she likes to mull over what is written, take it in and have it make sense to her, and then write about its influence. She genuinely cares about this world, and what is happening in it, and wants to spread love and joy to those that she is able to reach. And, she doesn’t feel like she has to do it alone; she has friends all over the world that she wants to help her share the dream of human connection…….
Deeps is a genuine free spirit, and loving human being…… it is a pleasure to get to know her over these last few months. And Ubuntu shines through her eyes and her smile….. truly…….
