"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

I love art. I yearn for the visceral, transcendent, intellectual and emotional ways in which it invokes the stirring of your spirit and soul, in ways that you cannot fathom or anticipate.
Here are some of the pieces I have posted on social media from Zambia and around the world that have touched me to the very core of my being.  I wish you inspiration, comfort, joy and thought from looking at these:

#pelliefun #soulfood #friday This beautiful #ProudlyZambian painting by @nukwasetembo is called "The Fall of Man", but there is something beautifully spiritually uplifting about it. To me it conveys beware of nefarious forces that may creep up on you and despite the trials and tribulations you face, find a way to thrive and your hard work will bear fruit: find the strength to rise and grow if you fall; don't descend into the depths of depravity and despair but find the beauty in an imperfect life. I see the Genesis inspiration as well, but I feel this painting has many profound interpretations. What do you see and feel? #Zambia #Zambian #art #artwork #oil #canvas #painting #Africa #African #africanart #oilcanvas #oilpainting #soulfoodfriday #genesis #bible #treeoflife #tree #forbiddenfruit #fruit #nature #natural #spiritual #religious #inspiration
