Like Herding Goats

Reedview, Northwest Province, South Africa
27 January 2012

Friday afternoon: the other teachers knocked early, leaving me to lock up the school. I finish grading and pack my bag. As I walk outside, I notice a yearling cow and a dozen goats gamboling about the school grounds. Some village boy is going to be in trouble if his father’s livestock get locked in the schoolyard. I pick up a stick to chase the animals out. Time for the weekend: I head home.
