About the work


The wet, the ground waits and the frogs give warning and sing their songs. When the rains come, the land is awash and the skin of the soil changes. The rock ngaama hole on the hill is filled and brimming, and the salt-river is flowing between the salt marsh. All is refreshed for the coming summer and the heat ahead.
