I was recently at an African festival and I saw this beaded chair. I appreciate that someone took the time, out of love, to create such a divine piece, bead by bead. I have always been fascinated by African art and culture and you can often find me daydreaming about what arts and crafts warmed my ancestors' hearts.
Did they also have the same special feeling that always walk hand in hand with creating some thing with my own two hands?
Did they also do their best to improve the world in which they lived -- often in seemingly impossible ways -- making it better for their children, and their children's children, like me?
I'm always encouraged when I see others trying to improve our world in their own way. Please join me in giving a warm welcome to today's guest,, co-author of the inspiring blog, Africa Calling. I hope you enjoy this unedited version of our recent conversation. One love.
