my santa letter – (en)

Dear Santa Claus!
I am a little girl. My papa ain’t no work, so we won’t have no Christmas. My little brother is satisfied with anything you will give him.
I wonder if ever people have hurt you when nobody wants to talk to you. I don’t want anything. I’d only like to have a friend I can talk to and not feel so alone. Don’t forget mamma. I hopy you will live till next Christmas.
Good night dear Santa Claus.
My Santa letter – by Dugutigui … and Merry Christmas to all of you!




About Dugutigui

In the “Diula” language in Mali, the term « dugutigui » (chief of the village), literally translated, means: «owner of the village»; «dugu» means village and «tigui», owner. Probably the term is the result of the contraction of «dugu kuntigui» (literally: chief of the village).

    An extraordinary one, but not far-out at all.

    Merry Christmas to you.

    touching letter.
    seems Christmas
    and it’s expectations
    are like everyday
    only more so! 🙂

  3. In simplicity can be found beauty and reality.

      I’ve been quite busy. Sorry for the delay answering you. Simplicity, as the difference between art and intellectuality 🙂 🙂 .

    feliz navidad, after 8 days in Gran Canaria, olé! 🙂

    otherwise, this is what I really think of X-mas, but I do respect my fellows’ faith – as long as they don’t try to impose it to me… 🙂
