"Everything is life." Malawian proverb for Friday, February 8. From the calendar "African Wisdom for Life" by Annetta Miller. 

Short and sweet!  We only have one life and we need to live it well!

Reminds me of another proverb which is on page 8 of my book "Life is in community"  African proverb

This photo was taken at Maasai Blessing ceremony in Kenya.  It was a basically a very well organized Women's conference where the women came together to talk about their problems.  About 300 women of all ages lived together in a compound for several days, going to meetings, dancing, singing, and participating in rituals handed down by their ancestors.  Life is very hard for nomadic women and child and mother mortality is high.
