The Tired outlook…

He read it before, he heard it before, why can’t they lift the Spirit, is it really that hard. Trying to sound polite, is like a lion washing his teeth before he chews you up, it’ll leave a good taste in his mouth, nothing more. The effort to impress, words that are not yours, the love you try to express, when you don’t actually feel it, it’s the same as the next trick at the circus, the magician about to overwhelm, problem is, you can’t get away with it. The next thrill, that will busy you, the toy that curbs the disappointment, the gift that glitters, distractions, from the tired outlook. Solomon encountered the tired outlook, the weary soul, who had set foundations in the wrong place, and was afraid to move.

The dark wave, that once shone bright, the application of rules, when you decide you had enough; demons in a nutshell, drawing you in, forming part of your life, leaving you with, the tired outlook.

Solomon had a prayer for them; those already dead inside, there is a light that can’t be extinguished, amen, and it is real Love, no need for the tired outlook.

Norway

I’ve decided to make international birthdays “a thing”. How on earth my thirtieth in Hamburg was an entire year ago, I have no idea but somehow September rolled around again and I decided to head off to Oslo, Norway.

Fidel

So Fidel has passed on, not everyone’s cup of tea, but at the root of the man, there was a yearning for freedom, and that came at a very big price, the western world has brought the world to it’s knee’s, not the impoverished Cuban’s who fought trade embargo’s, just because another nation didn’t like them. so who was Fidel then, well, he didn’t like the casino playboy Las Vegas feel to Havana, and how it became a gangsters playground, whatever. Having seen both sides, he was moved to do something about it. And at this time, McCarthyism had struck america, with the wipe out of many community minded writers, so it was no surprise they wanted rid of him. So who was Fidel, what made him last this long. well, today, if time spent is worth it, Cuba is one of the countries with a world class health system, and has both a well educated people, but also a very musical nation, with huge prospects. Meanwhile, and it didn’t borrow money to build their systems, they had to work out a better way. so who was Fidel. He drew the company of many, and everyone wanted to listen to what he said, so who is Fidel
