1052_pd1863193_1Because color
one of the Big Issues
in South Africa
you have to be Inside
to understand color schemes
yesterday because color
so much a part of everything
this is not a new idea
terrible old one
now though everyone
can go everywhere
at least by law
and even though
there are still
some places
not mixed yet
a Swiss man told us about
a white golf club hard to
anyone of any color
a golf club
we are in a place
because of Nelson Mandala
he was not perfect
the will
of the people
and Ubuntu
ancient African
idea kindness
and compassion:
I am who I am
because of who
we all are.
