    Thank you very much for the beautiful journey!

    I have chills from being exposed to a place I've never heard of nor have I ever seen anything like it.  

    Your work let me imagine and feel I am there -- walking about and experiencing the place in person.  I'm exhausted from the uphill hike!  I'm going to relax now at the bar with an early glass of vino and enjoy the view and look at my Heritage map and see how I missed taking notice of this unique (to me) place on this earth. 

    Love it!

      I'm so glad that the images took you on a journey. I think it is imagination and inspiration that are big parts in creating the changes we need to see in this world. We humans are capable of so much beauty, love, and ingenuity, we just have to keep reminding ourselves to tap into those resources.

      And please, what is the meaning of Safari mzuri Ahsante sana? It sounds beautiful!

        why I was so moved by your diary.  I was in a rare mood of despair about the all the horrors of which humans are capable...

        Amongst my many desperate thoughts was how little time it took to swing this new world (America) to old world consolidated ways of the few in control of The People's treasure and Mother Nature's resources ...and how UGLY and alike it all is!  Malls, big stores, restaurants, grocery stores, office complexes, downtowns in various theme rotations trying to revive & survive with a purpose, and endless neighborhoods of homes that all look the same and are disconnected from and stripped of any vibrant culture of living -- just having.

        The considerable time and effort you took to share your special travel experience with us, in a manner we could enjoy the experience as well, was fine timing of human goodness on your part.  And visually nourishing!

          I think that might have to become my sig line, with your permission.

          Yes, it's very easy to get depressed. But infinitely more nourishing to get inspired.
