AFRICAN ADORATION

And we shall be bathed, my love, in the presence of Africa...

The Maasai
Furnishings from Guinea and the Congo, heavy and burnished, calm and dark.
Masks, pure and primeval, on the walls, distant but so present!

Ebony thrones for ancestral guests, for Princes of the Hill Country.
Musky perfumes, thick grass-mats of silence,

Shadowed cushions for lazing, the sound of a spring—of peace.

Fulani people photos by Phyllis Galembo


Mythic tales and far-off songs, voices woven like the strip-cloths of the Sudan.



And then, dear lamp, your kindness in cradling the 
obsession with this presence, 


Black, white, and red: oh, red like the earth of Africa. 


 Today, Invitation To Inspiration honors and celebrates Africa…
Its patterns, its colors and above all- its people…
We invite you to join the celebration!

 Verses by Léopold Sédar Senghor
