The Year Of the Horse!

trojan+horseThe world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places.But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater.

Wise words from a wise man,Tolkien.Okay time to cut the crap. That was just a cheap shot at making you think I’m this totally wise dude. Something dumb Blay would do.Please don’t leave

The ‘365th’ is slowly whiling away.19:58GMT.An uncomfortably stuffy room.A frightening gaunt young man lying in bed.Idle and bored.Bored out of my mind.Bored enough to feel like giving this blogging bilge a shot again

First posts on blogs have got to be the most difficult.Especially if you are as boring as yours truly. The proverbial literary pole is not for all to dance on.Literary boners are hard to induce. Blue pills don’t exist.And I find not writing for over 3 years has left me with the body and looks of Whoopi Goldberg.Unless of course that turns you on,then… Ok ok no cheap jokes.

Time really does fly.My my!I could swear it was less than a year ago a certain Selorm & I were strolling on campus as freshers on our first day in school trying to figure out where was where.Funny night.A topic for another day People keep reminding me I’m less than 6 months away from graduating. Could bet my last hard earned cedi it was just a fortnight ago I was ringing in 2013 in church.It’s as if the heavens are playing some really sick practical joke on humanity and having a good laugh.God has a sense of humor.

New year.2014.Quite strangely & as against the grain as it may seem, I do have a resolution.The simplest of resolutions.Easiest to keep. I just don’t choose to call it a resolution. I find the word gives a certain ephemeral touch to things.You find yourself saying “fuck this ” halfway through January. Let’s just call it what I intend doing in ’14.I hope to be merrier.Noticed I wasn’t this year.

The Chinese call this a year of the horse. Hopefully our collective balls will be intact at the end of the year as we dig our knees in.

Ok then here’s to life,an enjoyable horse ride, fun,good music,best of annoying new friends we would wish we could strangle,provocative tweets and boring blogs in 2014.Break a leg & giddy up!Xo
