Aber mit der Heimat
geht man immer herum,
durch die Welt,

He consented to be described, and restored the fallen image to its former beauty.
We confess and proclaim our salvation in word and image.

Thanks for the cartoon. If I followed rat's advice down here in the Eastern Cape I would turn into a Trappist monk!
