awakened : self portrait march
to the reality of being back home after my incredible journey throughout Kenya for No Child.
although technically i probably have some jet lag, as well,
this is not what i am talking about.
this is different.
it is hard to put into words other than it feels completely surreal to be home. i remember feeling similarly when i returned from Ethiopia...but this is still much different. i know i need time to process it all &, unlike my travels to Ethiopia, i feel SO ready & eager to begin to do so.
but before i even begin,,, i felt called today to share my march self portrait... & yes, i am aware that it is technically April (that self portrait will come) but i was in Africa in March with no internet service, so March it will be!
'if you only had one minute to explain our trip to someone, what would you say?'
& i immediately wrote down,
"Incredible. Life changing. Awakened.
...there is no way to describe it in just one minute."
however, if i have to begin it one minute at a time, then that is what it will have to be.
without further ado,
my march self portrait :
...by the silly faces, giggles, laughter, energy & most of all
by the LOVE of these absolutely beautyFULL Pokot faces.
in order to hopefully give me some time to transition back into the groove of things,
i had to share a snippet of what my heart is feeling today.
i hope it made you smile.
i cannot wait to share more images & stories... i hope they warm your heart as they have mine.
with love, grace & gratitude,
