As we travel to another distant corner of our world, we meet the Maasai. Here we open our minds and experience a culture deeply rooted to the Earth and its majesty.

The Maasai are a nomadic, cattle-hearding people of Southern Kenya and Northern Tanzania. The Inkajijik (Maasai for for house) are loaf-shaped and made from mud, stickspillow shams floral, grass and cow dung and urine. Inside the home, the family typically sleep (all) together on one or two beds made of stretched cowhide secured to the ground with wooden posts. Typically, there are two beds: one for the father and older children and one for the mother and younger children. The larger bed is also used as seating during the day. There are no pillows, mattresses but they may use cowhide to cover the sleeping platforms.

As we make our bed in homes that we may inhabit for years or even our whole lives, the Maasai never live in the same home for any extended period of time. Instead, as nomadic peoples, they re-home themselves every few months. They live the land and have a different appreciation of what it means to be at home.

"It takes one day to destroy a house; to build a new house will take months and perhaps years. If we abandon our way of life to construct a new one, it will take thousands of years."

--Maasai belief.

In addition to working on WeAllSew.com, I also edit Through the Needle, BERNINA of America’s online magazine.? Jane Crowley’s “Magical Paradox”?article in Issue #15?(pages 4-7)?was my introduction to Zentangle? designs, and I’ve been drawing them ever since. They’re addicting! And have been an easy and relaxing way to work on my sadly-neglected drawing skills. (Thank-you, Jane and Delia, for getting me started!)
