It is not the camera.. it is the eye

The photographs are beautiful. Look at that Leopard coming down a big tree. Martti Lintunen Finland and made this photo in Kenya and all these wonderful pictures in Kenya. He is published by Gummerus in Finland. He has more than 60 books to his name. His great grandfather was a photographer as was his grandfather. The good eye runs in the family. The book Savannin Sankarit is beautiful. What is splendid about it is that Lintunen has given PEN Kenya the right to publish this book in Kenya, Norway or elsewhere. Thank you for a practical way of showing solidarity with us and helping build our centre Martti Lintunen of Finland.

Thank you very much for the kind dedication to me and our determined efforts to grow! This is great. It is inspiration walking the talk!

Martti Lintunen says that for him a photograph is a way of taking notes.. it is a note he makes and can write from it. Thank you very much M. Lintunen. Soon I will have a photograph of your book put up here!

The other book you gave to me and signed: To Philo Who does not forget. The message is after you saw my poems and how I do not want to forget our history and how people have suffered a long the way. Thanks for that, I did not know it. But more important is to see that you wrote for children who in their lives might have to deal with a very difficult issue. The suicide of a loved one.

Thank you for sharing
for baring what many cover
thank you.

I am very inspired by this kind gesture and the extent to which writers go to give what they have and to share words so that others can find meaning. Thanks.
