I saw this graffiti on the pavement on a recent run. I like this kind of impromptu transient urban art, and of course the uplifting messages.
You are beautiful!
You are loved!
Butterflies and a big heart are the perfect way to end off the year…
I met Sanea today on my traditional New Years Eve morning run to Kalk Bay. She was busy creating this amazing urban art using the outside wall of Olympia bakery as her canvas, and tiny-little paper butterflies as her ink.
It turns out that she offers free yoga classes to children at no cost, and uses her art to raise funds to cover the costs. I think that any form of exercise for children is good (and for adults); especially something like yoga that trains both the body and the mind, strengthening us and teaching us self-awareness.
Her butterflies have been known to land all over the place, so keep looking out for them. Below is her flyer, and you can find out more about her project on Facebook.
ps: the Snapscan link should work online if you scan it…
I saw this girl grazing on the pavement in Clearmont. According to her caption, she is part of an organisation called World for all.
There is also a quote from Nelson Mandela which says

According to their website,
we should highlight South Africa’s contribution to a world beset by challenges. South Africa stands out as an example of doing what is counter-intuitive: forging unity out of apartheid, negotiating a settlement after years of violence, and reconciling those who have been perpetrators and victims of brutality.”
Anything that helps our world to move forward to a better place gets my vote.
