The Becoming: Dreams vs Realisations

If set on taking on a new path while continuing to head in the old direction

You might not come to a dead end but most likely find self in perpetual oscillation

So however well-meaning your goals and ambitions

If not backed by renewed vigour and determination plus hard work and dedication

A clear strategy and precision in execution with a flexible approach to allow adaptation

Those aspirations will simply remain dreams and not realisations


Everlasting Vision

Every new day
Is like every new year

One needs an open mindedness and steady head
A vision that is clear
And a plan of action to adhere to as well as a willingness to play fair

Every season gives us reason to adapt and change
So take on each new challenge with commitment and care

Let every regret fuel the momentum you hope to gain
Never forgetting lessons past mistakes ought to have forced you to learn
For nothing is made better by staying the same

Aim as high as you can
And if you fall short raise the bar even higher when you go at it again

Life is but a game in which we all get a chance to play
What differs is our approach… levels of participation… and results we wish to obtain


Hope Brings Every Good Season

Wish you a heavenly existence
And happiness forever – not only this festive season
Hope you live through every experience
As if eternity was a moment
And love was every thought, every feeling and every action
Pray you have more open exchanges
And that you pay less Tobin taxes
Hope you carry every promise into the future with good intent
If for no other reason than the greater good


art & the price of recognition

A colorful creation
Or perfect picture painted
Yet only exhibited in the imagination
Remains undervalued like some obscure work in the Dokolo collection
Just another masterpiece undercelebrated
Even if in the mind’s eye every shade’s reflected
From royal red to blue like a Rothko at a Sotheby’s auction
Because only for what’s manifested
Will the artist be credited
Not for inspiration
Only that which has been created


a point on perspective

Having many followers does not equate to being well connected
Just as having a million dollars does not guarantee you’ll be well respected
So try and focus on being educated
Not on paper but through action
For that’s what ultimately proves how dedicated
You are to a cause worthy of being celebrated


Eternal Impetus

Lord knows the young buck is no Jim Simons
So not quite the quant as such
Yet just as calculating in his approach

And he won’t stop
Even if he gets what he wants
The medallions, the funds
The freedom to express his creative arts


letting love lead

snoerkling with the seals
paddling with the penguins
diving with the dolphins
all the things we enjoy
yet in this moment
nothing brings more joy
or beats how it feels
to have you steer this tandem kayak
while I power it up
just like you direct the course
of our love
