Lots of SLS-Kenya-’09 photos on the SLS Facebook Group: More coming, we understand.

The colors are brighter there. The sun hotter. Earth redder. Voices louder. Smells more pungent. Life lived at higher temperature, though slower (“pole-pole”) and with less of a sense of cosmic importance attached to the simple fact of its passage. Life lived in parallel, as it were, with the one we view as the basic text of our own daily existence. The time of your life back where you belong seems to stand still while you’re there: the place is that far outside the primary context of your being… An illusion, to be sure, but a nice one.
