Obama Obama

Obama Obama

On my birthday, I was eating a breakfast of chapati with avocado and
strawberry jam and left -over spinach salad when Liza came into the
room and announced with a smile, "Obama won!" I joined her in her
smile and we hugged in celebration and relief. Who could ask for a
better birthday gift? I thought.

As the day spread its wings, more priceless moments made me feel like
I was walking on air: Jackson, a boy I had met in town,
enthusiastically came with yet more ideas as to how to coordinate and
fund an educational program of Tanzanian crafts at Umoja and I
couldn't help but feel hopeful that he might actually have the
initiative to make it happen; at Makumira University, where I am
teaching courses in European Music History and Tonal Theory but more
importantly a new member of their African Ensemble, my students
spontaneously sung me the most harmonically complex and in-tune "Happy
Birthday" I have ever heard in my life; then during African Ensemble
class, when I became the student and they the teachers, Ng'oko called
over the dancing beats of our drumming, "David! You must drum as if
you are celebrating!" David, who had the fattest drum tilted in front
of him, let loose the energy of his arms and body and raised is voice,
"Obama! Obama! Obama!" filling the room with the smell of burnt hide;
the class ended with yet another impromptu Happy Birthday, this time
accompanied by drums and bells and in rhythms I couldn't even begin to
imagine in Western notation.

Yes, the whole world did seem to have their arms raised to the sky
that day, drinking in the hope of sun. And the stories spread - of
Obama's voice waking my friend in the wee hours of the morning,
blaring from not her neighbors radio, but from the neighbor three
houses down; of Kenya wanting to oust their president and hire Obama
in his place; of smiles and hugs exchanged in more places than Umoja's
art room.

But as more talk saturated with Obama's name fluttered around me, I
realized that the arms raised to the sky were not in celebration but
in asking. At a local bar, another friend had sat talking with the
barman and a Tanzanian Masai about Obama and the Masai man had asked,
"Is he circumcised?" And that seemed, for him, to be the only thing
that would determine if Obama were a worthy president or not. The
mother of Francis, an 8 year- old Tanzanian cello student of mine,
while admitting that the election of Obama was indeed good news, had
said, "Now we will see. We will see if he can do what he said he will
do." And just today, I was sitting on the ground with a bunch of
pre-teen girls, and I asked them, "So what do you think about Obama
being elected?" "Oh! It's great!" "Yeah, it's really cool!"....."But
he's probably gonna get assassinated." "Assassinated!?!" "Yeah, you
know like King....and with all those crazy people out there....." At
that moment, unnerving chills of foreboding rippled down my spine and
the girls went on to discuss security and the time when former
President Bush waved at them from behind the bullet proof car window.
Attempting to clear the clouds that had darkened my thoughts I said,
"Can you imagine how hard it must be to be his wife?? I mean, she now
has to be the model woman for both beauty and intelligence," which was
met with general agreement and more speculation about how it must be
for his kids, until one girl said, "But I really don't like his
wife." "Why?" asked another. "Because she's ugly."

So, just as the drum misrepresents the whole of African music, Obama
(and his wife) are mere icons subject to dismissal and unrealistic
expectations. Knowing that the world is in truth holding it's breath
with drums quiet and waiting, the time for unrestrained celebration
has yet to come.

But I did celebrate the end of my birthday with a batch of homemade
oatmeal and coconut cookies.....eating all of them at once, save for
half a dozen which I promptly ate for breakfast the next morning.

All about the Coconut

All about the Coconut

While there is no coconuts on this tree, there were coconut trees along the coast abundantly at the farm. Coconut is used for SO many things, but the age or ripeness of the coconut and one's ability to whack a coconut open correctly really make a difference in accessing the varied medicinal properites, and edible and botanical skin care uses too. Juice from the young coconuts, the small green "pipa," is excellent for hydration and was used as a replacement for blood in IVs somehow replacing lost red blood cells--check Wikipedia to understand how that worked because I don't! Pipas als are good for fending off bladder infections and work well as a laxative if you drink an ounce of so daily. Coconut oil has antifungal properties for dealing with athletes foot or ringworm and it has an SPF of 8--though its use in tanning oils in the West have been LONG emphasized. To make coconut milk and shredded coconut etc., you want to crack open an old coconut (the stereotypical Western image of a coconut: small, round dark with a little husk on its shell). Milk from an old coconut can be brewed with oregano as a nice tea to help soothe coughs and colds.
Medicinal uses aside, there are all the edible uses from old coconut's milk and shredded old coconut meat (which you have to do to make coconut milk anyway). After you extract the coconut meat from the hard husk with a machete or another serious blade, you shred the meat (or you can just eat a hunk if you like) with a HUGE, special coconut shredder. The meat will still have a thin brown outer rind that is totally edible and a waste of time to bother peeling for aesthetics. To make milk, you mix the shredded coconut with water and strain it to create coconut milk. You can use the shredded coconut again for a second weaker batch of milk. We'd often mix the two together for the best consistency. The remaining coconut at this point is best fed to the chickens or sent to Gandoca for Illiana's pigs to eat as the flavor is GONE. So if you wanted flavor full shredded coconut to toast for a rice dish, to mix into cookie batter or sprinkle on your oatmeal, or for a cake or cake icing--you better separate that shredded coconut before it gets made into milk and added to rice dishes, soups, curries, and other kitchen creations.
I can go on about all the other uses of coconuts around the farm that don't have anything to do with natural medical use, eating, or skin care, but maybe not here!
