Our Dear Dog Copernicus Grieved All Day Long

Poor Copernicus is deeply traumatized over the loss of Cassi. He escaped in the rain this morning. Then when I was getting ready to drive Luah to the BART station, he escaped again and got right behind the car. Luah warned me and held Copernicus. I put him in the back of the car and we all rode through the rain to the BART station. He stayed with me when I went to buy the final Christmas cards. We came home and he wanted to be by me every minute. Animals understand death and and love deeply. This has been such a sad time. Imagine how much more painful it is to be a parent who loses a child in a war like Afghanistan or Syria; or in a car crash.

I am a man who has lived n 6 of the 7 continents. I first arrived in Africa on April 18, 1981. Africa has been a part of my life since. I spent 8 months living in a Xhosa village in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. I was given he nickname Tatamkulu Africa. In Xhosa it means "Grandfather Africa." In April of 1994 I was allowed to vote in the first democratic election in South Africa..I was honored to be part of such a historical moment. It was a beautiful and a magical day.
