The time had come to depart from the sacred land. And on January 30, 2016 at around 1:00am, the last personnel of the Spelman College Alumnae Association, said their goodbyes to Egypt, from Cairo’s International Airport.
Beauties and appreciation for the journey, and the involvement of their Spelman Sister, were spoken. Their time from Aswan ended on the afternoon of the 29th–a number where balance meets compassion. Having left from the area of the dark mysteries, lessons had been learned, pleasures had been celebrated, and legacies of the sisterhood would soon prepare for another international adventure.
From their initial entrance into the country, their expedition, trips throughout the market scene, and other adventures, the women of the Spelman College Alumnae Association showcased to Egypt what anyone graduating from Spelman grounds represents. Diversity. Elegance. Intelligence, Grace, Success, Empowerment. And overall PHENOMENAL WOMEN!
Cultured, alluring, spiritual, and mystical in their demeanor, reflections of the Dark Goddess had made their mark. Their presence had been a blessing in the space. Having brought knowledge, while embracing it. Their travel legacy and herstory, in having come here, will be preserved by 2 other sisters based in Cairo: Dynamic twins who have (and have had) a longer journey in the Universal task ordained for them.
And so having headed to the airport, the leader managed to stay in contact with the base. Articulating the pleasures they had experienced, the memories they will treasure, and (for a later date), the observations they had made.
Another blessing for Spelman College, as they had traveled the land, breathing the air, and becoming still among the water. The knowledge was implanted prior to leaving Cairo. Hopefully, such became a sparkling tool for their explorations in Cairo, Karnak, Kom Ombo, Aswan, Abu Simbel, and Luxor. A tool that would come back to guard areas that welcome their existence.
Parting is such sweet sorrow. But their mission had been completed. For not only did they bring healing to the space, but they (in turn) nourished, and amplified, the Spirit of a young soul; half way on her journey. Providing her words of the elders, love, and encouragement, she would have all the needed tools to go forth in completing unfinished tasks; as the Spring 2016 semester at the American University in Cairo were to start.
There is so much to discuss. The many details left unspoken. For now, they were to enjoy their voyage back to the States. And having returned, they would convey the colors of the experience to the ones, they had left behind.
More telling words were to come of their adventures in Egypt’s midst. Until then, they could enjoy the ecstasy of flight in the phenomenon of slumber.
