There is just something!


There is just something about spending five days without electricity, a bathroom, running water, or electronics.

There is just something about having nothing else than to talk to people.

There is just something about realizing that the night sky is not black, but gray from thousands of stars.

There is just something about seeing the edge of our galaxy, the Milky Way.

There is just something about not hearing the noise of television.

There is just something about not getting a phone call.

There is just something about eating meat which had been slaughtered on that day, or vegetables which have been picked on that day, or drinking milk from a cow, on that day.

There is just something about eating fresh tilapia from Lake Victoria.

There is just something about grabbing a flashlight and roll of toilet paper in the night to do number two by squatting and aiming into a hole.

There is just something about kerosene lamps.

There is just something about taking a bath with birds chirping above and hens running around.

There is just something about drinking fresh spring water.

I have been so fortunate to enjoy these privileges which most white people will never venture out to get.
