    AFRICAN PORTRAITS BY MARIO GERTH Himba women rub their bodies and hair with ocre and myrrh . In the remote northwest Namibia the Himba have always harvested and processed Myrrh . A knowledge passed down from other desert peoples – the Egyptians, the Ethiopians, the Omanis and Yemenis – since ancient times. Commiphora comes from a drought-resistant tree : score the bark and the sap seeps out. This hardens to an aromatic resin : myrrh.

Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have - life itself. ~ Walter Anderson

Pure beauty. Notice she doesn't have absurdly high cheek-bones or perfect eyebrows, yet she is gorgeous because she knows true pain.
