Here we are, on the equator. That should mean we find a sense of balance, right? This journey has been a sweet distraction from the discord that has shaken our country from its roots, but it is also a bit of a guide, as well. There is a kind of equanimity that greets you when you visit Uganda. “You are welcome” is announced every time you arrive somewhere new, and it is heartfelt. You are welcome : it sort of sums up what we are struggling with here in our land of abundance. If Uganda has taught me anything, it is acceptance. There is a hope for something better, of course, but there is also an awareness of the beauty of the landscape, the people, the natural way of life that sustains them. They want you to experience the wonders of their country, and they want you to always feel welcomed and appreciated.
I hope the turbulence we are experiencing now leads to a world that is more in balance. So, as you move along the equator today, may you find a sense of balance and equanimity that brings you peace, and revel in the Joy of Togetherness with global dance ambassador, Karina Palma and Masaka Kids Africana. Happy trails!
Challenge for the day:
Does water in a sink going down a drain swirl in opposite directions on the northern side of the equator as opposed to the southern side of the equator? Is it true that water in the Northern hemisphere moves clockwise and in the Southern hemisphere, it moves counter clockwise? HMMM
