Brian Kelly: A Journey Into the Sahara...

(This is actually what the desert looked like)

A Journey Into the Sahara...
by Brian Kelly
June 20, 2013

As I sit here at my computer, I find myself staring blindly at the screen, as if the words I'm looking for will start to scroll across the border, like a ticker tape broadcasting the latest news brief. I imagine putting words to this experience must be like trying to articulate what it feels like watching your baby being born, falling in love, or having a near death experience. Not the easiest thing to do, but I owe it to my readers to do the best I can. All I can offer is the journey through my own personal experience. As I saw it through my eyes (which also changed color while in the desert, but I'll discuss more of that later). That being said, the experience I had and that of AK's, Lisa's, D's, Bob's, or any of the group for that matter, could be entirely different. Equally as profound, I'm sure, as many of us have had discussions since we've been back, but vastly different in perception, as personal experiences tend to be.
