2013 Feb. 15: Quotes

Extracted from our South African poet, Sindiwe Magona in her poem
“Why I Write” from her book Please, Take Photographs:

I write to leave footprints
To say: I have been
Have lived
This is who I am

Who I was
Who I have been
And so I write.
(Magona 60)


This piece is dedicated to all the writers in the continent and activists around the world.
