"Culture is the heritage of us all. some may be more interested than others in the treasures of the past, but no one can fail to take a pride in his country's participation in the story of mankind, as represented in carvings, sculpture, music, paintings and the other arts. And there is a personal commitment to this, for no man can really say he is alone: we are all joined through our identity, with the cultures which are part of the mainstream of life"
- Simon Kapwepwe, Zambian Independence Freedom Fighter

"Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm" - Winston Churchill

"Try to be the rainbow in someone else's cloud" - Maya Angelou

"Your time is limited so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinion drown out your inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition" - Steve Jobs

Twit Tuesday: Zed Childhood Trip Down Memory Lane

My older sister, me,  my younger sister and my Aunty Stella.  Classic
African picture taking with a car.  Why do we love to do that?! ;}
I have always looked back fondly at my childhood in Zambia.  This picture was taken in 1989 before we moved to Kenya in 1990.  Even though we lived in a socialist country, with basic goods scarce, and as we transitioned to democracy, attempted coups and riots common, life was good.  I had (and still have) a loving family and was connected with my extended family in a way that has been lost due to the peripatetic Afropolitan lifestyle that evolved from 1990 onwards.  This Twit Tuesday is my favourite kind of mix: part insight, part nonsense.  Enjoy this storified curation of conversations I had with fellow Zambians about growing up in our beautiful country:
