Long Way to Nairobi

My brain is still too foggy to organize much original thought, so I’ll offer up a couple of comments made by Joseph Karangathe, in order to keep this little blog from languishing too much while I get over being sick and get done moving house.

“If you just get money, it only makes you disturbed.”
I intend to put this sentiment somewhere prominent in my new room. 🙂

“It’s a long way to Nairobi. A very long way. I don’t know how I’m going to get there, but I just start walking. And someone comes along who is going the same direction. Someone picks me up on a bicycle and takes me part of the way. I get off and walk. Then maybe in the next town I meet someone who picks me up and takes me a bit further. Then I walk some more. The most important thing is that I know where I want to go – and that I just keep walking.”
– both quotes from Hope’s Edge by Frances Moore Lappe

Speaking of walking, between being sick and moving and bad weather I haven’t gotten outside to take a really good walk, camera in hand, for awhile. I miss my collecting trips. I’ll have to do something about that…
