this book to me and then I saw it on Super Soul Sunday...I read through some of the reviews on Amazon and ...totally going onto my reading list for this year!
* not quite sure how I came across these pics...but they capture love, loss, the transitional nature of life, grief, pain...so beautifully. So inspiring. And a powerful nudge toward the value of being present to it all.
*these stunning wedding pictures of Andreas and Zani brought tears to my eyes. This wouldn't have even been a possibility in the South Africa I grew up in.
*this breathtakingly talented little girl Botlahle Boikanyo who is a storyteller, poet, actress, brilliant advocate and adorable to boot. Her poem to Madiba made me cry for so many reasons...but mostly for the truth she speaks. Powerful stuff right here. Tara is in love:)
right here by Boyd Varty speaks out about Ubuntu "I am because of you" , Mandela and what he's learned growing up in the bush. He speaks about our shared humanity, generosity of spirit and the magic of (South) Africa. He says "In the cathedral of the wild, we get to see the best parts of ourselves reflected back to us"
