The message painting culture is unusual in Afghanistan. Some businesses post messages with their addresses and the Parliament often posts messages with addresses for us to see on the walls of buildings in the city.

I have not written any message on the wall yet. When I write my message on the wall I will write:

Life is beautiful and every moment which passes does not come again.
Believe in your creator deeply and in everything you want from your creator.

It will be in green paint that stands out in the sunshine, with a bush of red flowers and a green tree behind.

Painting is a nice way of showing our emotions without words. Every person can feel equal viewing a picture. A painting can explain ideas and feelings to the ones who view it.
