MUSIC & LAUGHTER
This picture makes me feel part of the modern world, especially the colours which don’t seem to appear in everyday life. The picture stimulates my imagination and I wonder what the artwork would look like in normal pose.

Sometimes, as I sit on the bus (the same bus I catch five days a week), edging and bumping its way through the traffic chaos to the city, I can’t help but wish life was simpler. I rest my head against the dirty, finger marked window and wonder who’s dirty mits have been there before me. I pray the aircon will kick in. I still have a 40-minute ride ahead. Urghhh! My eyes close as I deal with the constant braking and squeaking and the heat from the diesel engine. I dream of being in some other place, where it’s cool, where I don’t have to work at a desk in a building in a city. Anywhere, just not here.
