Being on Kumalo's Mountain was so palpably seeing something more powerful than me. Stephen Kumalo ventured here to conquer his internal struggles. On a personal level, as I looked at something so divinely beautiful I wonder how the carnal world can exist alongside it. I was surrounded by rolling hills. Below I saw the valley of the Zulu people and Carisbrooke Elementary, filled with young minds. It was a triumphant resting place.
What a difference it was to be surrounded by water instead of mountains! The waves rolled like the hills seemed to roll during our ride into Ixopo a few days ago. The ocean was calming while the hills were comforting. I am struck by the vastness of Africa and its beauty.
