Those quiet, precious moments when all you hear is a child's laughter and not another sound for miles... these are the moments I'll never forget. 😍 My connection with these kids isn't quite something that can be put into words. Our souls have absolutely collided through time and space for many, many lifetimes. Leyian and Nasirian, I love you with my whole heart. πŸ’™

    @dreamingladybug a friend gave me the idea of coming to Africa (was originally supposed to be Ethiopia) in October, and less than a few weeks later I found myself in Kenya. No organizations involved (they charge ridiculous amounts of money), and I don't have an income so I must budget very well. My travel is never, ever any kind of luxurious. I usually find myself staying with locals I meet and contributing to the household in my own ways. I'd never been here, didn't know anyone, nor the language or way of life... I tend to not research the places I go and just kinda let the universe do its thing in connecting me to the right places and people. It always works. 😊 First time in Africa after years of wanting to come! Lots of synchronicity brought me to this village and I fell in love and never left. The first day I came I realized they didn't have water and I thought, "I can do something about this." A few months later sits the manifestation of that thought... Kenya is where archeologists have found most of those million+ year old human bones. They call this country the birthplace of mankind. Such POWERFUL energy here!

    @cytherawilk do you know how much I would LOVE to have you here?! I know you'd fall in love too. πŸ’œ
     
  • @elzbthstrttn (52 days)
    @youbetchabetcha they're the most perfect beings. I've been away from Suswa for weeks (first time I've been away this long since December) and I miss them SO much. 😭 My babies.
     
  • @dreamingladybug (52 days)
    Ahh my heart πŸ’“ this is absolutely beautiful!! πŸ’«πŸ’ž I'm curious how you got where you are! Is it an organization you are working for/with? Enjoy your time there with those angels! πŸ’«πŸ’«What a beautiful experience 🌞

The GUILT I felt for taking these photos... Why? Because even if they create an absolutely stunning scene to capture on camera, these two beauties are being tied up and drug back and forth on the beach all day, everyday as entertainment for tourists. I'm sure this man has good intentions and is just trying to feed his family... but at the expense of the lives and freedom of two innocent beings. That sucks. I refused his offer for a camel ride everyday, thinking, "what else can I do to help? Maybe they need water..." Obviously knowing since I was a kid that water is probably the last thing a CAMEL needs (isn't that the first... and only... thing we learn about camels - their ability to retain water?) Okay, water was a dumb idea. So, surely they just need lots of LOVE and cuddles... right? I can do that. Okay, how do I explain this to a total stranger who knows nothing of the depths of my big ol' heart and speaks a different language than me and is now too far away for me to chase down and risk looking like a crazy mzungu? Sigh. If y'all only knew how many times a day my heart breaks.

Observing the local fishermen's slow, graceful movements is one of my favorite things to do. It's quite a meditative experience, watching them be completely absorbed by an entirely different world than mine...

A few locals enjoying the shade from Daniel's manyatta on a hot, dry day in Mt. Suswa. 😊 That's Mama and Puppy on the left (Mama is in the back, and yes, I gave them those names). I haven't introduced them yet, but we're pretty much best friends. They get all the belly rubs and leftover ugali and rice, and keep me safe by chasing away the hyenas at night. Puppy is full of energy and follows me everywhere I go, even when climbing the crater. Mama just gave birth to four more puppies about a month ago (one of which didn't make it past the first day 😟). They are the sweetest! The Maasai really don't understand how I can love these two so much because they don't domesticate their animals (this is the norm in Africa and Asia) and certainly don't view or treat them as equals. Seeing as how it's impossible for me to not share love with all animals, I've wantef to show them how joyful of an experience it is to share love and cuddles with the local dogs, cats, goats, sheep, donkeys and cattle. It's mostly worked with the kids, as they are obviously more open to it. Every time they see me rubbing Puppy's belly, they start showing him love too. It's beautiful to watch how children literally mimic our exact moves and learn so quickly, and also makes me very aware of how easily influenced and fragile kid's minds are. Here's to seeing the value in every being and doing our best to create a more joyful existence for all. ❀
