I just came across an exciting opportunity for photographers based across Africa. Agility are hosting a continent wide photo competition and are specifically searching for images that highlight “today’s vibrant, modern African reality”. Winners can win up to $4,000.00 in three categories: industry, technology and cities.
For more details about how to enter this competition and what exactly the judges are looking for, click here.
Last year’s winners in each category are below:
Yesterday, I read this beautifully written article on Huffington post. You can read it here. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve loved and lost, but the thing that I identified with most from the article is how truly loving someone changes you. I recently let go of someone I love and it was liberating.
Loving him hasn’t changed, but the fact that he doesn’t love me sunk in and I’m totally okay with that. Its taken a few years to get to this point, but I made a realisation that I do not require someone to love me for me to love them. Its quite a liberating feeling.
And I wouldn’t say that I’m waiting or pining away for him either. In fact, I’ve not prayed for his return in my life, or anything like that. I don’t need anything from the people I love because I provide everything I need myself.
Life is this funny thing that really does get better with age.
Enough ramblings. Have a wonderful day from me.
Why do girls feel empowered to engage in sexual activity but not to enjoy it? For three years, author Peggy Orenstein interviewed girls ages 15 to 20 about their attitudes toward and experiences of sex. She discusses the pleasure that’s largely missing from their sexual encounters and calls on us to close the “orgasm gap” by talking candidly with our girls from an early age about sex, bodies, pleasure and intimacy.
I love the creative arts, especially performance theatre. I came across this amazing short film about a young girl who’s searching for healing in the wake of her grandmother’s passing. After her mother throws away show tickets, she decides to attend a Dance Theatre of Harlem performance. The young girl watches in awe as the Black ballerinas whirl with grace, later finding herself beaming with inspiration as a result.
Written by Charlie Sohne and directed by Daniel Schloss, it truly is beautiful piece of work
I recently moved into my own place, and seeing that I’ve designated 2017 to building the life of my dreams, that definitely includes a custom-made walk-in closet. I’m converting my second bedroom into a walk-in closet/ office/ boudoir and I thought I’d share someone of the stunning examples I’ve found…
As soon as I’m done, I’ll definitely post the finished product, but until then…
