So life has brought us thus far. Yeah. I should say that I have so much to pen but not kidding I don’t. I have too much in my head to make headway and I must do this. For months now I have deliberated on how I should start off this blog, with so many catchy openers, one liners or even quotes by the gurus I look up to.
Then again I am reminded by self the reason why I must do this. Its not for self but for the expression to the desire to show forth His glory, the wonders of this world that he created for you and me to have dominion and to enjoy. And as Kenyans like putting it, “Hapo ndio imetufikisha” meaning that is where life has got us, I have to revert to doing it simple
I have read and followed blogs, researched on writing, attempted doing a blog which did not quite make it, but over time I have always had something to say about my memoirs and opinions about birding which happens to be second nature, next to a way of life.
I started of bird watching many years ago and it’s the one thing that I know I would do without getting paid he he he he. Someone once said that if i find that thing that i do best, that I enjoy, that I can wake up to very early in the morning to do without getting paid then I will have found my purpose.
So really, I will not tell you that I have and that I will quit my job tomorrow, but I know that I could just to do it for life. Then again, there are bills to be paid that have no thought to your purpose and need to be sorted out
So it brings me here, one on one with Kasunie. A page dedicated solely to birding. From the foot of Mt Kenya, up to Lake Magadi, or in the village where I last visited, Kasunie is dedicated to sharing the view of the beauty that I have encountered in bird watching.
When I pack the bird books, binoculars, camera equipment and not forgetting the snacks, setting out on a bird watching escapade, I have that feeling of seeing something new. Another way of life that at times I wish that everyone in the world would see it from my eyes. It is adventurous, wild and nice that one forgets about everything else out there.
I could say it has some form of relaxation in it. But as I was saying, Kasunie sets out to express the beauty of the land and mostly the birding aspects that even God in Himself in Genesis say and thought to himself… And it was beautiful.
So why not take sometime and we explore this ideology. They have been documented, categorized and even grouped as small or large birds and some even scientifically even been set regarded in some terms as endemic or even endangered.
But while bird watching and you are out there with nature, none of that comes to mind but to chase after that bird in flight, its call or even a distinct citation that will make it all worth it.
Kasunie intends to diarize all the escapades taken and share the pictures as well and if you were not available to make it, then you should view the same as if you were or you could plan to show up the next time. They were created for their beauty most of all that each and every individual can enjoy
And that is why i must focus on bird watching.
