This Is Africa.

Sunday, August 9, 2009

Hello fellow Americans!
Malaria free too.
Only, I'm missing more than half of my heart.
I have seemed to have left it in Ghana.
And I doubt I'll ever get it back.

you want to go on an adventure into the wild?
here you go: welcome to my life.
"for what it's worth:
it's never too late or, in my case too early to be whoever you want to be.
There's no time limit, stop whenever you want.
You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing.
We can make the best or the worst of it.
I hope you make the best of it.
And I hope you see things that startle you.
I hope you feel things you never felt before.
I hope you meet people with a different point of view.
I hope you live a life you're proud of.
And if you find you're not,
I hope you have the strength to start all over again."
- The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
