A Kichaa* . . .

Starts every day with a piece of chocolate

Enjoys the here-and-now

Values what came before

Can't wait to see what happens next

Likes a pop of red

Makes a mean red velvet cake

Reads Jane Austen

Upholsters the walls

Can't live without friends

Pairs Eames chairs with Grandma's antique dining table 

Loves cut flowers

Climbs mountains

Speaks her mind

Listens to her heart

Controls her destiny

*"Kichaa" means crazy person in Swahili.   Guilty as charged.  Crazy is good.
