My notebook is a penny. I am the penny, and while I
am empty, and lost like a penny with a hole in it, the message in/on the bottle is my hope (Olileanya in the Igbo language) and hope is the concept of my South. The message is addressed to God and to my future self, hoping they nd me. The pillars of white and brown represent my faith in God and trust in myself, they help keep me open.
