Treasure is aweh!!!

We are treasure

We are the future.

BAM! The day began

We were all nervous but hoping to have fun

We saw different kinds of beer bottles in a circle of bricks

It made us feel purple

The shacks gave us a different outlook on life

The poetry was so beautiful that it enlightened us

at the end of the day it was all about learning

and accepting art no matter what form

Art is Aweh!

and very exciting

cultures known and unknown

all so interesting

history is alive

in a performance on a stage

and when we touch

Madiba’s cage

in art we express

both sadness and pain

emotions so real

as we start to feel again

Dance is the language of the body,

music a window in a soul

art is the inspiration of life.


so many people.

What an exciting day.


free for interpretation to accept differences

So many forms of inspiration,

treasures discovered in places I’ve never been.

Adrenalin pumping,

rushing through my veins,

anxiety kicks in as we walk through the tunnel on our walk to freedom.

Art is everything

it is the creativity of the person

it is a thing made up of other things

it is a living thing like a person

Art is a form of expressing your feelings and emotions

Art is your skill

it involves painting, drawing, acting, music and singing

it is about how you feel and doing something with your hands

Art is giving life to another

Art is your talent!!!

Art is the flow

the rhythm of life

when light in my eyes

you’ll find fire and glow

in darkness my stomach

twists and turns with

it’s knife

without art I feel pain

without it no gain

so if I express myself

I know I will find

an eternity’s wealth.

Embryo of the Future

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

We have to infect Cape Town

with our positive spirits.

Inspiration, taking, infecting, treasure

unusual to the normal eye.

Looks fabulous no matter what it is.

Natural beauty is man mane?

Putting your emotions out there for the world to see

My hyper activeness ran away with me.

We live in creation of another, not knowing it but seeing it

Living a lifestyle according to your own imagination,

when suddenly it turns into a perfect demonstration

Making art with trash, this is about treasure

and making art together.

Art is about what you feel, think or what you do and how you do it.

Different faces wearing dresses in slum places.

Was amazed at how many things you can make out of rubbish!

Your past doesn’t determine your future.

I treasure the sum of my parts.

Cherish something you have

because once you lose it

you’ll never get it back!
