Favorite Quote:
it's not what happens to you, it's what you do about it that matters.

Every stroke of paint that is forced against a canvas
is one footstep of a journey,
one line of a book,
one expression of the creator’s
thoughts and emotions.
It is magnificence on paper.
Just like that of a book,
the first meet of the pen to its paper
is the inspiration for the rest of the story.
From the first meet,
it writes itself.

The author's comments:
This is another piece that I wrote for school reflecting some art that I saw in the Bunjilaka section of the Melbourne Museum.
The poem is about how the aborigines told stories through their paintings and how their paintings are like books.
