‘who owns the world?’ she asks with bright green eyes.
I do refrain-
too old, too wise, what can I say? but hush- not lie:
‘we are living in a material world…’
I pause- she cries:
‘it’s not fair! folks die!’
oh courageous little girl! I know too well, what’s on your mind!
she grows up, but ill
in this dryland
where the poor climb high mountains
of low self-esteem
on top of rich man’s waste of time.
(excerpt of poem written for the new Theo diary 2016)
the world is upside down… difficult to stay positive & strong & to believe that we humans will create a better future.
make sure you stay strong within yourself, so you can help those who are in need.
create & share good vibes & make our lives more colourful, even if your actions just reach a tiny part of this huge world. slowly it will spread….
Theo Collective creates a little piece of art every year, a pocket-size diary, hand bound & filled with collages & writing by us, the two members of the collective. With the limited edition of 216 agendas, we try to create some space& time for people.
‘fill in the emptyness with your own parties, celebrations, with things that are important & special to you! fill it with music, theatre, festival, art, travels, activism, with gardening, cooking, dancing, fill the space with knowledge, courage & some crazyness, with fighting against a system that wants to steal your time—-and claim it! make it your own, take care of it & share it with your friends, family & lovers!’
agenda’s are now in the making. you can still order one by dropping us a line to our mailaddress: theo(at)adm.amsterdam
