I have always believed the African proverb that says ‘it takes a village to raise a child’. As we remember mothers today for the hard work, diligence and dedication they show in raising their children and for the many hats they wear when running their households, let’s take a pause to remember those who have nurtured us in one way or the other. Those who give us encouragement when we need it the most.These people, you know, will always be there for you no matter what. To the village that help me become who I am today, I say thank you and I appreciate you dearly.
There is one standout person I remember today. Thank you for being my nurturing creative ally. Remember these shoes? They’re like a charm bracelet to me because it reminds me of the many times you’ve encouraged me in my creative journey & helped me stay true to myself. This is my virtual message in a bottle to you. I hope you stumble upon it one day (if not, I will keep it here for you) and hopefully show it to you myself. So that you know, that out of sight (FOR ME) is never out of mind. Love u no matter what.

Discovering art in open spaces is kind of my thing! So stumbling upon one is sheer delight!! I walked past a local cafe and discovered it was also an art space where creative minds could meet and exhibit work. There was no way I could walk past after seeing the sign and not go in. Infact, before I could blink I was already in the cafe!
Once in the cafe, my eyes wandered around the impressive art works but one particular artwork caught my attention. It was work by artist 'Robin Beuscher' whom I know little about, but am sure would pop-up on google if anyone is interested in his work and tries to find him. Maybe I should google him to see other works he's done. I digress, anyways, going back to my discovery story, I saw the artist's work and it's one that would make a great dinner conversation. It's called 'Nude Crude: A Figure Study Painted in Oil.'
It addresses the wide ranging impact crude oil has on the world economy, life and art as a whole. It's certainly thought provoking!
