why it’s worth it

why it’s worth it

In life, you will realize there is a role
for everyone you meet. Some will test you,
some will use you, some will love you and
some will teach you. But the ones who are truly important
are the ones that bring out the best in you.
They are the rare and amazing people
who remind you why it’s worth it. -Buddha

“Connect with people. Listen to them. By engaging with someone one-to-one, you have a fundamentally more rich experience.” – Anton Crone.

Snow tells the story of Mpho, a little girl who dreams of snow, despite living in the Karoo. Her grandparents intervene to help her dream come true – with a little help from Cerebos Salt.

Great Karoo Map

The Karoo is South Africa’s magical desert space, its version of New Mexico, the Outback or the Gobi. A vast, ancient seabed straddling the midriff of the country, the Karoo (a Khoikhoi word for “dry place”) is the size of Germany. In the past two centuries, more than 100 towns, villages, settlements and railway sidings have sprung up in the region, but the population has always been sparse, never topping the one-million mark.

“You can find rhythm everywhere. Pulse and cycles and nature and moon phases. It has a rhythm.” – Ronan Skillen

Ronan is a talented musician, who finds his inspiration, his balance and his connection, through spending time in nature. It’s where he re-tunes his body, mind and soul.

“Music isn’t simply a sound produced with instruments – it’s everywhere, permeating our environment, and it shares a common thread with nature, especially rhythm. Rhythm is what fascinates me most”
