I've had a great many interesting conversations this week. Observing the extreme ways in which people respond to ostracization – becoming their best selves or retreating inwards with destructive results. Debating whether seeking numbness is ever positive or healthy. Discussing herd mentality and how several corporate systems (in the widest sense: commercial enterprises, religious institutions etc.) ignore the uniqueness of individuals resulting in missed opportunities and individuals unable to fully realise who they really are. I'll be blogging about more of these subjects soon. In the meantime, here's a round-up of last week's posts, in case you missed anything:

A huge thanks to you for taking the time to read and share comments, facebook appreciation and tweet love. Remember, you can also get updates via facebooktwitter and by subscribing to the Afri-love feed.

Next week, look out for:

  • Quote of the week
  • A worldwide celebration of thanks…
  • Design inspiration from a South African illustrator
  • An interview with a US-based artist with a powerful story (and absolutely beautiful paintings)
  • Inspiration from that classic book, Africa Adorned
  • Reflections
  • TGIF!

Have a fantastic week! Be proud and be inspired.
