Among the giants

This photograph was sent to me by Maryam Ali Ali, a poet/novelist friend who (like me)is a member of Association of Nigerian Authors. You could see her among some of the leading Nigerian intellectual giants - Prof. Emeka Anyaoku (former general secretary of the Commonwealth), on her right, and Prof. Wole Soyinka (Nobel prize winner). The photo was taken in Ibadan last year during the ANA collequiem in honour of Prof. Soyinka.

I wonder just what she was feeling at that material time. I'd feel like an ant among the poplars!
