It's that Time...

“Wisdom is wealth! One thing I respect deeply about Africa is the treasure of wisdom our ancestors have handed down to us. While some of our leaders may have forgotten them, the rest of us don’t need to. From prudent sayings on wisdom itself, to judicious encouragements, warnings and even quirky advice on learning, patience, unity, wealth, poverty, community, family, love and marriage, these quotes will inspire you to be the best you can possibly be.”
~African Proverb
Beautiful African Sunrise
 It’s been quite the week with many emotions going all threw me. Something when you know that your time is running out that it comes into play. I feel that my moods have been sporadic to show that these past few days. For the first time in a long time, I actually have felt liked I actually belong where I was. I wasn’t fighting it, so to speak, like I did during heavy seas many moons ago, but rather came to terms to embrace it. I came into a group of people who were my new family & just embraced it rather quickly for me. I was in alignment…I saw that some were very much like myself; where as others I just trusted my inner light on what I told them from the start cos there was a connection that just felt right, others might have taken me longer to warm up to & some I might not ever had a chance to connect cos it’s was not in the cards. It’s all perfectly normal. The felling in my solar plexus now that is all too familiar to me when I know that I have to say good byes to people who I actually do LOVE. It’s not easy. I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t feel the emotions & release them with tears of love.
The fact that I have African soil running threw my veins with all of the seven continents I’m not going to be the same. I’m dreading going back to the States & my family cos I don’t see the world like the mainstream. Something about travelling makes you open your eyes to a higher awareness that you wouldn’t just get if you just sat at home in front of the telly watching the National Geographic Channel thinking what your seeing is what your actually experiencing, but in reality it’s not cos it’s not your own personal story, it’s a story of another person. The dance of your own life is actually missing cos your not experiencing it for yourself. Get rid of the fear that is holding your back; take that leap of faith into the unknown to embrace the moment. Nothing is holding your back except for your own ego. It’s all about breaking the old train of thought that kept you safe, but in fact it actually kept you from living your best life.

Well, you know

Sundowners Sunset
 My week has been rather unique, again I’m still chasing the light with seeing a herd of elephants, the famous lion prides, capturing data for research (clipboard first then camera), teaching an eco system lesson at the Mafa School, working on another Facebook Post for Research, conservation work, embracing an 3 AM drive with the most beautiful sunrise, sundowners with a gin & tonic to watch the sun go down, stargazing the night sky, hanging out with everyone & embracing the silliness’ factor. I’ve been busy with editing photos like usual on top of creating lesson plans & working on creative research projects. It’s been nonstop action like the Energizer Bunny; keep on going & going & going…Long days with a labor of love these days is how I’ve been living.
