Simply close my eyes and listen

February 9, 2011

I love to just sit and watch the morning arrive.  Temperatures in this area of Kenya in June range from 11 to 18 degrees Celsius, or 50 to 70 degrees fahrenheit, depending upon elevation.  This morning it was cool, probably about 16 degrees.  June is generally the fourth driest month of the year, so the rain we had just experienced the day before was very welcomed.  As I sat in my chair, facing the sunrise, the breeze in my face was filled with the fragrant odor of  heather.  Of course, mixed in with that wonderful smell was the more than occasional hint of the five camels we brought into camp. 
In my line of work, I feel it is very important to have highly trained senses.  One of my favorite exercises is to simply close my eyes and listen.  For a few magical moments I try to become “One” with nature.  It’s like touching heaven. 

I was startled back to reality when I heard Malkali approaching.
