Mashigo reminds us that we are anchored by the soil that we walk on, guided by the dreams of our ancestors and motivated by their ancient battle scars of slavery, colonialism, patriarchy and all manner of oppression. It is in Mohale Mashigo’s writing that we come full circle and realise that indeed we are our ancestors’ wildest dreams coming true.

The Yearning is for me a reminder of the complexities that healers go through because of the truths that are kept away from them, to protect them or otherwise. It took me back to that one recurrent dream that for a long time defined my reality – lost and alone. It made me think of the women in my life, those – although alive – I have failed to find again on this path called life.
