THE JOURNEY

 

THE JOURNEY

This is a journey that was a dream for quite some time. I started the journey in the spring of 2015 but there should never be an end date to it.

 

The plan was to travel from South Africa to certain waypoints from which other areas will be discovered. The first point should have been Malawi from South Africa through Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and into Malawi. In Malawi I planned to stay for a few months which bis currently a year. The multiple ventures that I would have taken up became much more than anticipated, especially after seeing the need within this wonderful community. We started with some farming consisting of numerous vegetables, fruit, and coffee, helped building a school, and did some teaching there. One day I will visit Tanzania and spend some time at the Ngorongoro Crater and Mount Kilimanjaro but that will have to wait for now. I am also teaching the rural communities some valuable skills to further themselves. All this is being financed by designing websites and some other odd jobs I find.

 

On this page I will keep you up to date with everything going on including successes and failures. This page is for curious friends and family, and whoever is interested in traveling Africa, treading unknown waters, and taking on massive projects in very rural areas.

 

I will miss you too, but you are wrong if you think that the joy of life comes principally from the joy of human relationships. God's place is all around us, it is in everything and in anything we can experience. People just need to change the way they look at things.

THE INFO PAGE

Everything that I encounter, good or bad, will be posted here. Well not everything, just some insight into things that should be avoided and things to definitely explore.

I have realized that the past and future are real illusions, that they exist in the present, which is what there is and all there is.

“I am a sincere man from where the palm trees grow;

 and before death takes me I want to let the poems soar from my soul.

 I come from everywhere and everywhere I go;

 Art I am among the arts, among the mountains, mountain I am.

 All is beautiful and loyal, all is musical and right;

 and all like the diamond, is charcoal before being light.

 With the poor of the world I want to cast my fate;

 A little brook in the mountain pleases me more than the sea.

 I want whenever I die, stateless but with no master;

 to have on my tombstone, a bouquet of flowers and my country's flag.

 I cultivate a white rose in July as in January,

 for the sincere friend who offer me his honest hand;

 and for the cruel one who rips from me, my heart by which I live,

 I cultivate neither thorns nor thistles, I cultivate the white rose.”

Jose Marti
