“An anthropologist proposed a game to children in an african tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the children that whoever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run, they all took eachothers hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats.
When he asked them why they had run like that when one could have had all the fruits for himself, they said ‘UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the others are sad?’ (‘UBUNTU’ in the Xhosa culture means: ‘I am because we are)”
Literally the opposite of the American world view of “I can only be happy if somebody else has less than me”
This is beautiful
Hullo, this is the first sketch I’ve posted. This is the first character sketch I have of a character for a story I’m writing, an modern adaptation of Dracula.
This is Lucy, 25 years of age, 5ft 7 (ish), and 200 (ish) pounds.
May be posting more.
Please don’t steal.
