HAPPY KWANZAA, everyone!
Day 6, December 31 – KUUMBA (creativity)
To let our creativity shine, always doing as much as we can in the way that we can in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.
This adinkra symbol, Owo Foro Adobe, depicts a snake climbing a raffia palm and represents ingenuity, excellence and performance of great feats
Open my mind to new ideas and ways of living. Let me bring to each possibility my own unique creativity, and produce from it something which expresses the essence of who I am.
