There are times when blogging has the ability to take you to a whole new world. On a cyber journey you can suddenly be transported, discovering places, artists, work that you never knew existed. It was on one of these journeys that I came upon the work of Ethiopian artist Getahun Assefa.

Assefa has been contributing to the world of Ethiopian art for over twenty years, but today he is brand new to me. His contemporary pieces depicting the beauty of Ethiopian women, nature and music.

With each work of art I am completely transformed. Each piece is a journey into the soul – those quiet reflective moments that we enter into when looking upon nature or listening to a song. I myself am inspired to join these figures, just taking the time to peacefully meditate.

I invite you to have your own cyber journey this weekend. Let a blog take you to some place new, and discover the creativity of a world beyond your own. I am also happy to invite you to read the second installation of Design for Mankind’s Inspiration E-Zine. I am so happy to say yours truly is featured. Thank you so much Erin!

Have happy, wonderful, soulful, and inspired weekend! Happy Friday!
