I am an Australian woman in her 30’s who is married to a Ghanaian man, now back in Australia in the remote north. I am a teacher, performing artist, Buddhist, wife and mother, who is moving into public health. I am also the director of a culture and arts Cooperative between Ghana and Australia (see unitycraftcoop.com). I’d like to be a midwife too. I don’t believe in being defined by these things but nor do I mind the definitions that come with them.
I have lived in a few African countries and have always enjoyed living in our small town in northern Ghana in the traditional family house. I was pregnant and gave birth to my daughter in Ghana and my years there amongst sisters, extended family, expats, women-like-me-with-children-like-mine, etc. left me pondering the concepts of Sisterhood and connectedness in Africa, in Australia, with African women and with Australian women.
This blog is about those two concepts: Sisterhood and Connectedness.

The "Rants" expressed are my own, and generally unpopular with others.
