The clan of pygmies in Rwanda called Abatwa were considered great hunters, potters, dancers and singers in the history of Rwanda but it is said that when the colony came the Pygmies were not recognized as a tribe. While others were taken into schools, the pygmies were considered bushmen and incapable of learning. But those pygmies are left alone by the rest of the society.
Similar to the Native Americans in the US or the Aborigines in Australia, Rwanda’s native people now live in close nit communities and face many challenges as the country around them continues to develop.
What would you like to do if money were no object?
Today I came across this beautiful and inspirational video narrated by English philosopher Alan Watts.. and cant help myself not to post it here as it is very uplifting and makes you think about our life, our desires, our goals…
I want to share with you.. Specially if you are an artist – take time and watch.
Life of an artist is unpredictable, sometimes I have money, sometimes I don’t. But this never forced me to do something else as I believe in myself, and I knew from childhood that I want to paint and being an artist is my way of life.
So, all artists out there, if you are struggling with some temporary problems or are in any kind of doubts about your future, – take your time and enjoy the video.
We all need a piece of inspiration from time to time.
