I have been sleeping in lately. With school behind me at least for now, there seems to be nothing much to do around here. See, I have done my Christmas shopping and wrapped all the presents. So, I start my day with a nice cup of coffee and while I enjoy every sip, I cannot help but contemplate how I will spend the rest of the day. I offer to cook dinner, but dinner is seven hours away and I am already feeling restless. I decide to do laundry and attempt to read my new poetry book by Pablo Neruda, (great book by the way). Then, I walk in the garage and notice her hanging there by the wall, and before long, we are off whirring through the breeze, through the traffic, and in the orange groves, – just the two of us. I am suddenly alive! she may not seem much at first, except for a few frames here and there, but she truly is a wonder. And just like that, I am back on routine and I like it.

At 41, I am still figuring out life: my place in society, my career path, a family of my own, any many others things. Heck, I am still trying to make friends in California; a place I moved to 3 years ago. I am currently in a Community College to make up for the many years I missed school while in Africa (Uganda). I intend to transfer to university next year and double major in History and English. I lead a very ordinary life; a normal day is spent doing school assignments, hiking, or reading. My favorite thing to do is walk! Short walks or long walks it does not matter. Walking allows me to think about things - anything! My love of walking comes from where I grew up, a small village in northeastern Uganda. It is still one of the most remotest areas I will ever know, and couldn't even start comparing what life is like there to say a place like California. Walking was all I did while growing up! I walked for miles to school, to church, to the shops, to the borehole to fetch water, and to the market. It was quite an adventure unlike any other - so you now understand my love for walking.
