I escaped on a romantic, secluded weekend recently, to Lamu, a tiny island off the coast of Kenya. Not only are there no roads, there is no pavement period. Sandy paths, just wide enough for you & one of the many resident donkeys, wend their way between buildings.
I found a small art store tucked between two buildings. Entering the shaded rooms I found this lovely art. It had a story to tell. Are you listening?
It’s risky, said experience.
It’s impossible, said pride.
It’s pointless, said reason.
Give it a try, whispered the heart.
