Amboseli National Park – Mount Kilimanjaro’s Gift

Of the four Kenyan national parks I visited in May 2022 Amboseli was the national park I was looking forward to most. That is because I backed out of an eight-day trek to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro at the last minute after coming down with a mild case of Covid in April. Covid interrupted … Continue reading Amboseli National Park – Mount Kilimanjaro’s Gift

Poem by Gabriela Marie Milton – Literary Revelations: Hidden in Childhood – Call for Submission

Poem by Gabriela Marie Milton I call into being the taste of that which is hidden below the existence. The breath of a salty ocean on my skin. Everything is here between primal and the infinity of possibilities: the epistemes of love; the essence of beauty; the whispers of a language you cannot understand.

Presenting trust, so I could share,my hardest truths and dark despairA fake friendship, one … Continue reading Hidden Intentions

Nightmare

On my way to a fun night,car breaks down, an unknown site,glimpse up at the dim moonlight,heartbeat marches to pure fright. Blood pressure does jumping jacks,views that surround are pitch black,equilibrium, out of wack,hear my own inner voice crack. Goosebumps come out for a peek,cold sweat does not drip, it leaks,both knees buckle, head feels … Continue reading Nightmare

Some Sports from Past Times

With working hours that traditionally aligned to the hours of daylight, the time available for pastimes and sports was, at best, limited to the Breton peasants of days gone by. This narrow opportunity was limited further by the often isolated nature of rural dwellings and the poor transport infrastructure that connected communities. It is therefore … Continue reading Some Sports from Past Times
