looking for a poster

i have recently been preoccupied in the search for a poster. i want it to be a poster about Africa, about African people, about African children. Something to make people think of Africa and her people for one brief moment... but something that will make them happy and feel the beauty and warmth of Africa. there is so much negativity in the media about Africa generally.

i have found this one but i am still looking

Unhappy meals

This long and fascinating article in the New York Times comes so close to my dormant interests in food and sustainable agriculture and I agree with absolutely everything he has to say on what has become such a tired topic--how to eat healthily. He has it all right as far as I am concerned about eating real food and escaping all the fads and also seeing food as more than nutrition but as a part of culture and relationships.

Here is the link: Unhappy meals

And while I am on this subject let me also encourage my very small circle of readers to see the movie An Incovenient Truth. I feel that the two subjects are so related--our physical and spiritual health and the health of our entire planet.
