The Life of a Ladybug

live with intention. walk to the edge. listen hard. practice wellness. play with abandon. laugh. choose with no regret. continue to learn. appreciate your friends. do what you love. live as if this is all there is. -mary anne radmacher

Happy Kwanzaa - Kujichagulia!!!

Happy Kwanzaa to all! Today is Kujichagulia - the day we focus on self-determination. Today, we should focus on naming ourselves, thinking for ourselves, deciding for ourselves, expressing ourselves ... being ourselves! On Kujichagulia, we light the black candle - symbolizing our people - and, from that candle, we light the first red candle - symbolizing the struggle of our people and the blood shed in the process. Harambee!
