Please be peaceful, she wrote
Believe Art leads to multiple interpretations.
Summon the diversity of ideas.
Summon passion to defend those ideas.
Our nature is peaceful.
Bamboo and Grey
And Rain. And Impermanent Clouds move past.
We can run to the river. We can run to White Rock Lake.
Free to say what we feel and what we know to be true.
We are free to believe.
Art is our voice today. Art is their voice.
Today we murmur the voices of
Pier Paolo Pasolini
And today we speak for Tania Bruguera.
Our words are her words.
Our freedoms are her freedoms.
Our hope is her hope.
So bring your peaceful nature
And your full hearts
And be aware.
Be Tania. Be her today. Be our tomorrow.
