High Above with India Arie

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

Enjoy!

A favourite poem…

Invictus by William Ernest Henley
Out of the night that covers me,
      Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
      For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
      I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
      My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
      Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
      Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
      How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
      I am the captain of my soul.

I find beauty everywhere, but its on Instagram that I find the beauty as seen by others – and I love experiencing the lives of others by what they visually put on their Instagram feeds.

One of my favourite pages is @BeBeautifulla. Check out a few of my favourite posts and follow if you enjoy :-)

MyOdara.com

I moved to East Legon at the beginning of the year and, as I’ve settled into the area, I’m discovering how quaint and quintessentially middle class the area is. The number of affordable eateries, coffeeshops and boutiques are too many to count. One such shop I discovered, thanks to the amazing Instagram, is Odara.

If you love delicate, yet bold, jewellery, then look no further. Located at the A&C Mall, I was surprised to realised that these beautiful pieces are super affordable as well… some pieces as affordable as GHS 25.00.

Take a look at my favourite pieces from their instagram page:

Paul Sika and digital storytelling…

The work of Ivorian digital artist and storyteller, Paul Sika, is as thought provoking as it is captivating. I especially love the extreme visual quality of his images, which, for me, entices me to engage with every single detail of each image.

There is serious beauty in the rawness of his work. The more I look at it, the more I love it.

Enjoy!
