    Maybe you know my grand-daughter, the one with the non-Somali name - Marilyn. You won't believe it, but she was named for me, and my own is Maryam. She tells me that Marilyn is the name of a famous actress who's now dead. You know the young these days, bringing mysteries and foreign ways into our lives.
