Approximately two and one half years ago in a Nubian Village on the upper Nile of Egypt, several camels came trotting by me on their way back to their stables, on their own.
It was a clear mild evening, as I waited for my wife and daughter to finish up some trinket shopping.
One lone camel came trotting by at a brisk pace, but came to a complete halt when gazing at me.
The camel apparently had not seen a western before, in this remote village, and therefore he looked me up and down, but did not approach.
The expression on the camel’s face went from one of concern, to what literally could be interpreted as a relaxed smile.
Our daughter claims the camel was laughing at me.
Once the camel was satisfied in his dead stop scan of me sitting on the side of a village main road, and that all was OK, the camel turned his head again, and trotted off into evening dusk, to his appointed unknown destination.
It is an indelible moment I will never forget, despite millions, in a long global travel schedule and career.
So what does this have to dos with anything Uncle Russ? You may be asking yourself about now?
The camel is metaphorically each of us.
We may get distracted but do not deviate from your appointed destination (or goals).

Oh, by the way, and occasional smile or laugh is not a bad idea either.
