Annie Lennox updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@annielennox) on Monday (April 5), discussing her visit to South Africa. The Eurythmics singer writes:
I’ve just been very quiet over the last couple of days since I came back from Cape Town. It’s good to recharge.
We spent ten incredibly productive days there, filming, recording, observing, learning, and altogether being engaged with a whole variety of people and projects.
This time our encounters were more about “positive /productive” responses to issues, rather than focusing on the overwhelm of despair.
Going back to Khayelitsha is always a resonant experience in all kinds of ways… and I keep getting flashes of images that have made a lasting impression.
