Before starting my journey later today I want to share this video that says a lot about Mozambique both then and now and for me, personally, why I went there in 1990 to plant trees. The video is a brief piece describing the work of four artists who work together to create a Tree of Life out of decommissioned weapons left from years of war. In 2007 I saw the actual sculpture on display at the British Museum. If you are interested in Mozambican history, art, and people’s approach to life take 4:36 out of your day to watch it.
