8th August

nokia pictures 012How great it feels to be on top of the world. Do you remember that feeling of absolute joy? Maybe you felt it as a child, playing out safe, no worries or care. The feeling we get out with nature.

Yesterday, I experienced one of these feelings of happiness. I was walking along; it was a slightly sunny day, the breeze was blowing and my steps were sprightly. According to that old saying, I felt like I was walking on air. All strains had been lifted. I was smiling at people passing by. It was a glorious moment. It’s time to rekindle that feeling of freedom and smile.

“I think I am the first man to sit on top of the world.”

“…the great things of the world, the great accomplishments of the world, have been achieved by men who have high ideals and who have received great visions. The path is not easy, the climbing is rugged and hard, but the glory at the end is worthwhile.”

Matthew Henson: 8th August 1866 – 1955 (Arctic explorer and first man/African American to reach the North Pole)
