Prrrrrrr!!!! 🕕 there goes the half-time whistle 🏁. Its quite a fast game, and unfortunately the call is only an alert for the start of yet another half. Sigh; no rest for us.
But just before we kick off the ball into play, lets take a quick review of what has been ⏪ the highlights.
January: This is usually the month of renewed hopes and lined up resolutions. I had mine too nd they could have been well inclined into new adventures and living life for the moment with sight for tomorrow.
With visits to Ol Kalou, Thompson falls Nyahururu and Paradise Lost Kiambu, it couldn’t have been better for a month usually associated with hot & dry weather extending up to the pockets. ooh and purses too.
In a wrap, Jan was a good play and great show of intent put forth. Great command of possession and a high conversion rate of opportunities arising. ★★★★☆
February: Ooh to the month of Love. I ought to live, laugh & love, glad to have spread this to all deserving quarters. I would equate this to the dribbles past gloomy obstacles and through passes to those in close range (the heart). Whether i made the best finishes out of the set ups i got shall remain to be seen; but enough of my story now – it is better to have loved and lost… blah blah blah.
Taking operation #TembeaKenya to another level, Amboseli National park was the highlight of the month and an eye opener for me. The view of the blissful Mt.Kilimanjaro especially on the morning of St.Valentine’s still freshly lingers in my mind.
Someone bring me back to the present. I need to revisit this place in a few years though. Cheers to my Feb! ★★★★☆
March: Not quite an eventful month. But we all gotta get our foot off the gas and take control of things at some point. See how Arsenal plays when they are 1 goal up, like just keeping the ball reading the game and awaiting an opportune moment to tear up the defense? Yeah right, until they find themselves on the receiving end!
Well, it was not as such to me. But i found myself often on the defensive and probably even out of ideas. However, i still Marched forth and came out clean.
And a road trip to Kerugoya wasn’t that bad. ★★★☆☆
April: Who said chapatis must be round? And who said you can’t TembeaKenya around Nairobi? April was a tactical boost to the game; from defence to offence real quick.
A visit to The Dam Redhill Tigoni was a good unwinding from quarter 1 of the year. Of floating restaurants and boat riding galore in the chilly Limuru weather was fascinating.
I wouldn’t fail to mention the visit to my rural; stronghold territory aka Tharaka Nithi county. The road trip only made me realize how blessed we are with resources and this is #WhyILoveKenya🇰🇪 Lesson learnt – every day is a new experience. ★♥★♡☆
May: Going international starts from your neighborhood. Talk of pitching camp on your opponents last quarter, moving the ball with a touch of confidence and the crowd up in roars behind you. Such was May.
A trip to Arusha, Tanzania was about being open minded in this game. Be open and a free spirit. Interaction with new environment, people and culture. Not forgetting currencies too :mrgreen:. Recognizing the outer world and breaking outta my shell.
Followed shortly with a visit to Rolf’s Place Rongai with my best of friends taught me to keep the loyal ones closer. Talk of an attack with short passes, the typical 1 – 2s or tiki takas as you may call them. The game was loong won. May was a done deal! ♥♥♥♥♡
June: Madaraka day came with its own demands. Who wouldn’t like to unwind on a public holiday in the middle of the week; we are Kenyans right?
Naivasha had to be the place – this is like the ordained fun location in the 254’s map. Hell’s gate was graceful, and the gorges nostalgic. The Olkaria geothermal spa capped it all, life is too short not to be in a hot water pool.
June brought with it a lot of soul searching, calling myself to meetings that were often adjourned without a conclusion. Its that moment a coach is faced with selection problems to get a good match of players to optimize the teams performance.
But from it all, like a youngster from the academy, was the birth of this blog. It wasn’t such a bad ending towards that whistle. ♥♥♥♡♡
The Lord has surely been merciful to me, may He see me through all to come. Lets set the ball rolling now, the halfs may have changed but the goals haven’t yet.
Cheers to the months that have been, and the edventures to be. Focus. ✌
