Wise - Another IF (NaBloPoMo #8)


Three Kings


I've decided to use this painting for my Christmas cards this year. It's a tribute to three very wise men - Luca, Emmanuel and Vincent. They are proud Ugandan gentlemen (in the true sense of the word) who each added invaluable words of wisdom to my own personal volume of 'Life's Little Philosophies'. All three of them had little formal education, but their words held enormous resonance for me. Waybale Nyo, sebos! I miss you more than you could ever imagine.

Beautiful image. I thought about the three wise men too, but your image looks way better than what mine did in my head. Love it.
