Pure Joy

February 3, 2016 - 3:37pm
This past Monday, Facebook reminded me that three years ago I was in Magomero, Malawi, snapping the above picture of those beautiful children. I captioned the photo, "Pure joy." Immediately, in my mind I was back in that village with those kids. I smelled the soft rain that had sprinkled the dusty roads. I heard the squeals of laughter as I showed the kids their faces in my camera. I saw the gray sky over a vista that stretched forever. I could actually feel the pure joy in the moment three years later. It was an excellent way to start a Monday. That day gave me a new perspective and opened my mind to a world I knew existed but had never experienced. I ended up there when I was assigned to travel to many far-flung places for a work project. What began as work became the experience of a lifetime that changed me forever. I know how lucky I am to have taken that trip. That trip showed me how fortunate I am in so many ways. My views were broadened; my mind was challenged; my heart was opened. These children, and all the others I met along my way, taught me more about life than I could ever learn in a book. St. Augustine once said, "The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page." I've read a few chapters now, but boy, do I want to finish the whole darn thing.
