Joy

14-08-08
It’s been one month since Celebrate Africa started and all I feel is joy, love and freedom. If I had known that it would be this glorious, I would have done it earlier. It’s better than anything you’ve ever imagined, better than chocolate cake, than rice and dodo, it’s better than watching your favourite team win the world cup! It’s like being on Big Brother, Survivor and Idols all at the same time.Joy; abundant joy. I’m living my dream, it is a reality. Many people go through life never being able to live their dreams and for me, in less than two years after I seriously thought about this dream, it is coming true. Effortlessly, seamlessly, joyfully. It is true what they say, ‘if you can dream it, you can achieve it.’ Believe it.

I feel love for all the many people who believe in me and encourage me. The one who gives me advice about what to do, who to see, who to call, who encourages me because he has done this in the past. The other one who I call my ‘energizer bunny’, because he’s excited about everything I’ve done on this trip and badgers me to write about everything. My sister, who is packing her bags to join me on the road. All the fantastic people who leave such beautiful messages on my guestbook, including the spammers because they increase the hits on my site.

The feeling of freedom is the most powerful of all. At first, I thought I had to write, I had to update my website regularly, I have to see all the interesting places, I have to, have to, have to… Then I realized, I DON’T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING! I do only the things I want to, when I want to do them. I am as free as air; I can make my home anywhere. The earth is my home.I am absolutely thankful for the opportunity to be doing this. Celebrate Africa is not about me alone, it’s about us as Africans and how we need to see all the things that make our continent fantastic. This is who we are. We are African. I am African

Glad to hear that your trip is going good, and that you are doing just what you want.

Me, never been to Africa, but, thanks to another person who has commented here, I am scheming on how I might find my way there.

Your words just increase my desire to experience your continent.

Hi Girls,

Celebrate Africa with real Africans. Every time you get to a border and meet these kaki boys/girls, ask yourselves whether they represent the real people of Africa or their stomach. Colonisation was that bad that fellow African cannot see beyond language and a few dollars.
