That Ushago feel

Photograpy by MJ Kawira and Skrapbuk_ke

_MG_5779Growing up, my parents’ side hustle was farming and it did them so well they have carried on the culture to date. There’s a sense of fulfillment that comes with planting a seed and watching it grow to produce food you can consume. My favourite so far is potatoes. They have this sense of mystery as you harvest them that you only see some dried leaves protruding from the soil and you would have to dig up just to find out just how much potatoes are under the soil.

Over the last years, I have been blessed with a Canon 1200D which has brought nothing but joy in this life of mine.  Continue reading WWIM17_Nairobi

KIMANA

There is something special about a child’s laugh. I can’t quite explain it, but it has a raw innocence to it that makes you feel good inside. Feel Happy. It has to be a miracle of life, an innate universal language or dialect that we all understand. It should come as no surprise then, that when the offer to travel to the small town of Kimana for a weekend to visit a Children’s Home, the only question I had to ask was when do we leave?
