Free reflection, perception, awareness of a certain moment in life.
A moment of our existence, a moment in the moment we experienced separately.
I changed my jacket, my habit, and my personality dissolved into a new era.
I who was earth and ocher have become multicolored.
The dance was paused, the drum stopped sounding, orphaned.
The ceremonial drum is silent, the joy is no more. The dance steps involved in harmony turn into cacophony.
Silence has become the king, places are being emptied.
Our homes become social security homes, moment sees its day, for resource and renewal.
My ocher is born in multicolored, colors of hope, openness and inspiration.
Couleurs of wisdom and opening for a new horizon.

- Macoumba Ndiaye
