The new adventures of Courasche… prologue

CourascheSo, dear readers, a new adventure is about to begin… I’m being posted to Africa… the deep dark heart of it… a regional job that will have me foxtrotting from one coast to the other across the continent…

It’s tale that began some time back but embarking on this new wave of adventures, I think I’d like to chronicle it… to reflect on what it is to be a single mobile working mother today, on the global stage, on the fields of the multinationals… a new strand to my blog postings…

Through the ages there has always been a Courasche… she is every woman really, isn’t she… I wrote my masters thesis many years ago on Courasche that old 17th century Grimmelshausen character who later inspired Brecht’s Mother Courage, reinventing her in a 20th century context…  so herewith begineth the new adventures of yours truly in the role of an early 21st century Courasche… and the challenges of protecting my child and earning a living on this modern day battlefield… will see how it goes anyway…
