Took these pictures whilst out walking on Wednesday night, to have dinner at a neighbouring project. … as the sun was going down after a day of heavy rain … love the rich vibrant colours of the African sky.
Location- In the bush in The Southern DRC.
Amazing nostalgic soulful song with an African feel on the percussion and rhythm. Love the soul in this song, although it brought a tear to my eye … as I miss my loved ones (family) whilst being so far away ….
Fly, fly away
Do you remember?
All of us sleeping
How many of us dream?
This sky where we live
Is no place to lose your wings
So love, love, love
The Derek Trucks Band – This Sky
inspiration, that which
born from not knowing
drives us to discover
to tackle the uncertain
in the hope that certainty arrives
grasping at the uncertainty of life
pushes us to embrace that continuum
of not knowing
if or when certainty will arrive
but arrive it will
turning the unknown
into the known
that empty canvas
into the most majestic sunrise
on a glorious new day
flush with new discoveries

Feeling very proud at present, I am embarking on another new writing adventure, I have been appointed as the Africa editor for the UK based EMS publication – Ambulance Today, circulation includes, Europe, Canada, the Pacific Rim and now Africa.
At Ambulance Today we are always looking to expand our ambulance news coverage to different parts of the globe, which is why we are proud to launch our new segment ‘From the Africa Desk’ and introduce our Africa Editor, Michael Emmerich.
The Africa Quarterly editorial, that I will be writing, will cover the main regions in Africa, with opinion pieces from various regional role players. Our focus will be on the key regions across the continent; East, West, Central, Sub Sahara and North Africa. I will explore key and relevant NGO’s and the vital role that they play in bringing medicine and emergency medicine to the continent. The first article will be in the Summer Edition (UK Summer), which is in the next week 🙂
To all the medical people who follow this page, if you have any ideas for special feature articles on ambulance care in any part of Africa drop me a mail. Equally, if you have any news items you would like us to run either in our magazine or on our daily-updated global ambulance news website make contact.
To my fellow passionate EMS friends across the world, I trust you will walk this continent with me as we delve deeper into the respective regions in future articles. Till then be safe out there and stay passionate.
