‘It’s risky,’ said experience. ‘It’s impossible,’ said pride.

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.
