I recorded this story, one I made up and told to my son on a cabin porch, as a “perk” for donating to the Heart of Africa film. I offer it here as a gift and/or an invitation. Feel free to download it or listen to it (best done on a cabin porch). If you choose to donate to the film, we will happily accept that. Donations are tax deductible. See the link above.
A Gift for my Readers
