If you can’t beat them, outshine them!

Postcard of a proud Berber woman somewhere around 1940. I wonder what she is looking at, what she is thinking about and what her name is. Adorned with beautiful tribal Moroccan Berber jewelry, she stands tall and proud.

She reminds me of so many women in my family, who, whatever life throws at them will still adorn themselves with their shiniest most gorgeous things, their most beautiful outfits and keep their head held high. As my grandmother Mira used to say: If you can’t beat them, outshine them!
