Breathe

Breathe!

Too often do we let ourselves forget that this world was meant for our appreciation, as we tend to lose ourselves in the chaos of our lives demands.

So I tell you this, every now and then, go to your highest mountain or your most sacred sanctuary, sit there and breathe! Breathe like your soul depends on how deeper you stretch your breaths. Breathe like you are taking in the magic of the world and taking out your magnificence to the world and beyond.

Just, breathe!

Up the Ngong Hills We Went

Having lived in Nairobi, Kenya for over three years with now and then visits,it was refreshing to see the other side of Kenya that was green and serene. Up the Ngong Hills I went to celebrate my good friend and Doctor Hurksy’s graduation with her family and little was I prepared for the beauty that was waiting up there.

Imagine fresh air, breezy silence apart for the distant cow bell chimes as they grazed far below and a stretch of nature that makes you sit up there for hours as your mind quietens. The Ngong Hills, seven in total, are part of the Great Rift Valley and the term Ngong comes from the Maasai phrase enkong’u emuny meaning rhinoceros spring (via Wiki). They are a famous hiking destination for tourists as well as athletes training grounds. I couldn’t help but admire the dedication of the few runners who passed us on our walk and imagined the medals they might be winning for this country one day.

Thank you Hurksy for showing me your beautiful home. I look forward to watching the sunset with you next time up there 🙂

thank you

The Wisdom of Mt. Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro from a distance

On a beautiful Saturday evening, with skies so bright and air so fresh…
Stand and look in a place where roots are found; whence natives came and whither admirers flew…
Idyll it stands as majestic as it can be, beckoning to the observer..
With promises of a spirit renewed, and a mortal’s presence in the heavens…
Look not,human, at how far the road goes, but how one you become with it…
As you make your way to its three peaked hearts…
Let it reward you by showing you its beloved Continent’s face.

Turning This Ocean View Into An Office

DoubleTree Working ViewWhen you get to work in the midst of such a breath-taking, thought-provoking, soul-smiling, heart-filling, serene-inducing sight that makes you feel like you can just reach out and touch that beauty in your hands!!..who would want to go back to a confined office space?

This ocean has surely heard and felt a tidal number of thoughts, wishes, dreams, laughter and sometimes even tears from the many who have stood by its shores and let themselves get drifted in to its magnificence.
