‘God Alone Knows’
“Lubangakene” is the name my Ugandan sister, Sarah bestowed upon me. I wish I could convey the warm accent with which she spoke.
‘Lubangakene means that God alone knows who you are.’
It is not possible to know, the blood of too many – in me – has left me confused, mixed up, shaken, yet decidely unstirred.
In the wonderful book, “Meeting of the Waters” by Kim McLarin, a character notes that in Brazil there are two rivers that converge and yet do not mix. From World Travels.Com:
The Meeting of the Waters
Where the dark waters of the Rio Negro join the lighter muddy waters of the Rio Solimoes a natural phenomenon is caused: the separate shades of water run side by side for a length of more than four miles (6km) without mixing. The separation is apparently caused by the difference in temperature, density and flow rate of the waters from each river.
Run side by side without mixing.
