Beautiful Maasai Mama by John Kenny. These mamas are true inspirations, I hope to be half as happy as they are one day. Whatever the Maasai equivalent of Hakuna Matata (Swahili), I wish to be!

We are the music makers,  And we are the dreamers of dreams,  Wandering by lone sea-breakers,  And sitting by desolate streams;—  World-losers and world-forsakers,  On whom the pale moon gleams:  Yet we are the movers and shakers  Of the world for ever, it seems.     ~Arthur O'Shaughnessy, "Ode," 1874
