What’s there to not love about your favourite auntie? When free reign is only free as skin-deep is deep, when metaphors become allegories, Blues become happy and parents stand on the side stage cheering you on – as your free-spirited auntie stands with your feisty interests. What’s there not to love about a mouth that […]
Frozen greens – on rolling hills. I know the owner as he prepares Christmas carols to sing. Heisse Marroni stands are up, darkest month filled up with light and love. I stand here waiting and watching train-tracks fill up with snow. A thought occurred as footprints of many appeared this morn. I too saw your […]
Unpopular opinion perhaps but true to what I argue, problematic is not racism but colourism like “Et tu, …”! As women in Iran fight for rights, Aryan remains a misconception – greed splits human-race and hatred bonds us through fear.

Somethings remain ‘impossible’ in socialism, as society – a breeding ground of politics, with individual positions push the social reality, – practice pressure as a manipulation tactic, subconsciously meeting at estuaries, and sometimes running parallel. Everything is possible in politics.
I have a soft spot for the underdogs, the socially awkward, kind hearted misfits, honest and the naïve – they are emotionally far more mature than the normal, the strategist, charming, conniving superficial humans that the world readily celebrates. For the former doesn’t know how to gracefully let go – but when they do the […]
