written blog post by Niamh Clune

Move over Van Gogh! Marta contributes her art design for Plum Tree Books and now has donated to the Auction for Sahel on Sunday Sept. 16th. Follow back on Reblog to find out more information…

…Maria’s light and dark hands reach for the same thing. I think this a great metaphor for our project, Song Of Sahel, which is about: the have’s and have not’s; those who dream; those who do not!

Both benefit the people of Sahel. Come join us. Check for more information by following back to original blog page. Thank you. the secret keeper

  1. “I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.”
