After an incredibly busy week, on the verge of being out of comfortable control, I find myself needing to pause and reaffirm my mantra for the year. Making time for myself. Thanks to an insightful gift from a friend, daily doses from the book, The Artist's Way Every Day, are helping to remind me of the importance of giving my creativity play time and, giving myself quiet, solitary time. This coming week, I'll be making more of a conscious effort to put myself first. 

How are your good intentions for 2011 panning out?

This week I treated myself to the current issue of Arise, Africa's Global Style and Culture Magazine. I can't wait to sit down, undisturbed, and soak it all in. There's loads in there, including an article on one of my role models, artist Wangechi Mutu, and Gordon Brown talking about Nigeria's future … hmmm, should be interesting …
