Time Waits For No One

Saying hi to all! Again, I look at today’s date and can’t believe how quickly this year is going. However, some things remain unchanged, particularly in the world of politics, social justice and the pressing need to address our climate change crisis. If anything, time is running out! What will happen by this time next year I wonder? I say listening to the Rolling Stone’s track of the same title. Will the UK Government agree a Brexit proposal by then? Will ‘the Donald’ still be US President? What are your views?

The time also signifies a year since the official release of the album “Pictures at an African Exhibition.’ I decided to mark it by posting a short video, describing my experience of working on the project and collaborating with Darryl Yokley. Wishing you all a prosperous week!

Happy Holidays and A Prosperous New Year!

So here we are again! It’s been a tumultuous year on the political front, with unpopular politicians making equally unpopular polices, continuation of avoidable humanitarian catastrophes and increasing fears on the condition of our environment and our very existence.

On a personal front, I’ve lost close family & friends and had my fear share of life’s ups and downs. I remain thankful however of the opportunities I’ve received this year, the fact still I’m alive and the fact I’m able to write this entry! With this in mind, I remain positive and excited by what 2019 may bring. We can only be optimistic!

As we near the end of the year, I’d like to wish you and your loved ones the most enjoyable of holiday seasons. Moreover, I sincerely wish you all a happy, healthy and thoroughly rewarding 2019! Make it count because life isn’t a rehearsal!

Mr. President, your so-called ‘shithole’ countries make Miami great” — Repeating Islands

Here is another response to Trump’s recent barrage of racially-charged slurs by Fabiola Santiago (Miami Herald). Here are excerpts: Let me tell you, Mr. President, about those people you think come from “shithole” countries. They made Miami what it is today, a city like no other in the United States. You won’t defeat or degrade […]

I’m no longer surprised by what President Trump is alleged to have said but I found this article from Repeating Islands a worthy response.
