A Summer's tale


As i often do towards the end of summer i reminisce of the times and how the season went by too fast, often time  also reminisce on our times..time is for the most part an integral part of all of us but we don’t acknowledge the times we squander while a float on a raft down the stream.


A lot of us waste time in relationships that bear no fruit, relationships that we"hope" will pan out, we hope that one day to look back and sing we made it through the storm, but that's a Lie we tell ourselves to become complacent to stick to the script, be it for society sake or because we don't want to start over, whatever the cases we give too much to walk away with nothing. In the middle of an island oasis is a fig tree, the surrounding might be fantasy life but the fact still remains that it will bear no fruits... A lady i use to work said “a relationships is like a public bathroom-- either you gonna use it or get out the way” (PG version)


"neither one of us wants to be the first to say goodbye" Gladys Knight.
That song is great but it speaks the reality of unfounded happiness. It's not working we have to let it go. As much as I try to give the benefit of the doubt, I friend zone every female I encounter, not because I have an icebox where my heart use to be (I probably should move that thing) but because I'm tired of the game of throne. You don't survive in this game, you either win or you die. In relationships no matter how much less you put into it, some remnants of emotions will linger, and when it does the complexive nature of memory is the path of solitude, in other words it stings a bit.


We'll always have Paris, but Paris was a moment in time, a lapse in how things could be but as much as we we dream of happier days. I remember the Germans marched in and you wore grey (Casablanca). In good times the best times are only remembered in bits of pieces of how we were so great together. In reality why do we waste time being unhappy when we could've moved forward.. forward, there's a thought. The idea that we are seasonal should imply that you're not leaving but the season has come to its end and we bid adieu.


Those Endless summer nights...

Reflections of a Selfie

Every year at this time, I reflect on how my time was spent & the life of those living moments. I'm not sure might be reflection number forty-something or not, nevertheless, it begs the question. A selfie taken without a mirror does it reflect? I was watching a video blog on YouTube that a friend suggested and one thing that stood out the most was the old quandary. If a tree falls in the forest and nobody's there to see it does it make a sound? Based on the philosopher George Berkeley's observation, also a concept approached in the holographic universe theory, as well as a quantum field theory, essentially stating when something is observed there is a perceptive acknowledgment, but when it is not observed, what we first perceived to be fact are simply the opposite. Ex. because no one saw the tree, therefore, it made no sound. This leads to my other inquisitive quote "nothing unreal exists" so we go through the adaptation of reality vs abstraction? I reme

The Looking Glass

  And so it goes! You live, and you learn. The journey is to teach you that perhaps there are alternatives but live this moment and own it. It’s not easy to accept the present when you’re still fighting the past. Grow through it. That’s the only way you’ll get through it. The looking glass has no prejudice; all reflections are of the self. Learn to let go and live. That’s how you get ahead. I say all this to say this! It’s all bull shit, who am I kidding I’m as messed up as anyone looking in the mirror. The reality we each chose to live in modern-day often reflects the society we’re functioning in. Take, for example, the number of people living with depressions. I mean, I never thought I dealt with depression until I started paying attention to the patterns of life. Every year near this time where my birthday is days away, I go through the same sentiments. Be it a feeling of loneliness even when I’m well accompanied, or a sense of underachieving event though I’ve successfully mastered

Triye [ Trier = Sort out ]

“The good ones are already taken, now a days you have to sift through to find a good one” Recently while listening to a single from one of the most popular Haitian musical bands-- Kreyol la.  The single off their upcoming album which is cautiously titled “triye” (which means to sort out, pluck out, or be selective and choosy). The song stipulates that all the good ones are already taken and if a person is on the market now a days you have to go through a few uncertain ones and you have to be quite choosy to find the good one if you’re lucky because all the good ones already taken. The intriguing part of that concept to me is that i’m not sure if I buy it, I mean it’s the same approach as to say there’s no good man or good women left out there. i always say all women are good and all man are good and what i mean by that is he/she might not be the good one for you but their match is out there and it’s a matter of time for them to find each other, sometimes people are stuck in go
