It’s been nearly 40 yrs since we (the Taidam) arrived in the US. As a child, I vaguely remember the Taidam song Sip Ha Phi – unsure of its meaning then, the melody embedded itself into my subconscious calling me to discover its message, its calling. And through a series of fortunate events, our elders including my parent, found their final resting place here.
It’s a few more months before I depart, yet I feel it calling me to return to land I have never been to and to see with eyes unclouded. And when possible, I hope to ease the journey of others along the way. Sonla – how I long to see you..
