“The Broken String”
Because of a broken string
because of a people breaking the string
the earth my place is the place of
something, a thing broken,
that does not stop sounding breaking with me


Poem by Stephen Watson based on
Dia!kwain’s /xam story, Lloyd Bleek Collection

A sanctuary of meditation and silence under the only indigenous sweet camel thorn tree (Acacia Erioloba) left on the banks of the Tankwa Riverbed, Tankwa Karoo, South Africa.
“Silence is not the absence of something but the presence of everything, the presence of time, undisturbed” (Gordon Hempton)
