"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

Soul Food Friday: Spreading the Love on Valentine's Day :)

I don't actually believe in Valentine's Day on a personal level.  It is too close to my birthday for one - would rather be spoilt then than have someone skimp coz they are thinking they have to do something again not before long.  More importantly there are 364-5 days in the year that you should be making an effort to show your love in.  Knowing you are going to express yourself on a certain day with everyone else in such cliched ways can make it rote. The best kind of special is not only thought out, but also spontaneous so the receiver is pleasantly surprised.  OFTEN.  REGULARLY.   

However, if this is the day you want to profess your love or reaffirm your commitment to someone, please go ahead!  If you can find meaning in this day, who am I to rain on your parade?!  Exactly, so go make someone feel special.  Ignore the above paragraph and bring on the love fest.

As for me, I am going to profess universal love, wish all you readers a Happy Valentines day, and proceed to express my sentiments through photo and video xo  

And if you would like to celebrate it with me, I will be speaking on a panel of African women bloggers during the Metamorphosis of Love Google + Hangout hosted by at 19:00 CAT, 17:00 GMT.

Though you may try my patience, my passionate patriotism will never be extinguished.  Zambia I will always love you xo

For those of you who need reminding.  You deserve to be loved because you are "full of wonder"!  Do not sell yourself short and allow yourself to be loved in a lesser fashion because you do not think you should want or demand better.  Don't settle and don't be afraid to pursue that someone who you think is out of your league, life is too short and you are too special.  We are all on this earth for a reason, and that is enough.  And we all deserve that divine requited love :) xo

Love should fill you with rapture.  If you need food for your soul to open you up to love and its possibilities, watch this beautiful documentary. The artist's love of African print and cloth opened her soul up to create such inspired art.  Imagine what watching it could do for you...
