We Pray

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle” ~ Albert Einstein

On Sunday morning, Mother’s Day, I encountered a chain of events within the hour that led to me being unexpectedly being invited to a Zion church meeting (I was on my way to have coffee at The Coffee Guys – South Beach near Moyo uShaka Beach). What a lovely encounter and great start to the day. There are many photos, some of which I will post in the days to come: all taken on the beach in front of Afro’s South Beach Durban, South Africa.

We Pray

“The Zion Christian Church (or ZCC) is one of the largest African initiated churches in southern Africa, with members belonging to the main ZCC star and members belonging to the splinter group Saint Engenas ZCC. [1] The church’s headquarters are at Zion City Moria in Limpopo Province, South Africa (Northern Transvaal). The main church is led by Bishop BE Ramarumo Lekgenyane and the splinter group is led by Joseph Lekganyane. The church fuses African traditions and values with Christian faith. As opposed to the mainstream European churches, the church has sought independence and autonomy in terms of theological and dogmatic approach” ~ Wikipedia

A Simple Life

Thank you for giving me today and I pray I may see the sun rise tomorrow, Amen

Explore, Dream & Discover

Good morning Durban – a National Geographic Magazine Top 10 Oceanfront City!

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did so. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover” ~ Mark Twain

“One of the great things about exploring is that sometimes, the discovery lies not in what you’re exploring, but what’s right next to it. Something you never would’ve known had you not explored in the first place. So while something may seem like a waste of time to explore, while the promise
of gain may be slim, it still might be worth it just because you never know” ~ Brian Kim

I heard about 1.5 days too late that a seal had beached at Umhlanga – The FunShine Coast in front of The Beverly Hills Hotel. I raced down there but Mr Seal had already left on his journey.

“Everybody’s looking for the “ultimate way”. But the thing is, the “ultimate way” for each person is going to be different. That’s why we have all these wars going on between people. This diet is the best, you should have kids, you should have a big wedding, you should do this type of exercise, you should drive this type of car. No. Look within first. Discover what you value, what’s important to you and that will become your “ultimate way”. Other people will have different ways and that’s OK. That’s for them. Your ultimate way is truly your ultimate way.” ~ Brian Kim

Canon South Africa 550D, Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens, F7.1, ISO 800, AV, speeds 1/800 – slightly slower sec, handheld, 4 portrait images stitched in PS. Location: Wilson’s Wharf Durban, South Africa. Saturday 2 May 2015 at 06:47. I’ll say it again: the 550 and 50mm 1.8 is a really entry-level kit but it continues to surprise me.

Anyway, it’s time for breakfast. I think KuDta On Wilsons Wharf will be a good bet at ZAR 22 for 2 eggs, bacon/macon, 1 toast, chips & coffee. One of my photos is on their wall as wallpaper – I think this photo “I am Durban 031ZA” would look far better wink emoticon. The TIF file is a healthy 800MB and it’s sharp!
