He came to the capital city of Kenya to talk about trees, trees in all sort and shapes and meanings. A tree for a chief to set down with people of the village, a tree that shadows his surroundings, a tree that a family builds, a tree that smells like a poem.
A tree that reminds us of the other Nobelperson from African soil: Wangari Maathai. She planted trees. She encouraged to plant. She is remembered for her staunch rootedness.
Words about this meeting and speech have been rooted on paper, made from trees. You can read it in a digital way.
