Exercise 070709

I ask myself the

tough questions but always

come up short. There

has to be a better

way to find all

this out. Instinct tells

me so. But who

likes digging on their

own; sometimes it’s best

to just leave it

to others more competent

to figure it out;

just hang on tightly,

watch out for the

backwash. And yet the

deeper the hole dug,

the harder to climb

out of. And there’s

always the risk of

falling through into a

void, an emptiness that

leads to something else

unexpected, maybe even death.

Yes, I ask the

really hard questions of

myself, and often fall

short of answering them.

Perhaps that’s where wisdom

comes in, silencing you

from making a potential

fool of yourself, pulling

you back into the

herd. Ask away, they

say but learn to

accept silence as your

answer; live it up!

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.

  1. Sons of Zion are known to me through family connections (check out 1814, House of Shem, Tomorrow People, Black Seeds, and many other locals for the strength and variety, as well as the original – Herbs). Reggae is very strong in Enzed, having a strong connection to Polys – Islander and Maori. And, by natural association, the ganga scene.

    This new single is not their usual reggae roots. Initially, it had a “meh” effect on me. But it grew on me pretty quickly after playing it several times. My only complaint is that it is too short: you just get into the swing of things and it then stops. A bit disappointing as I really like it but don’t want to overkill on the playing of it. Maybe their next tune will be much longer.

    It’s nothing unusual, and not too bad for a local song. It remind me of Jamiroquai and, more recently, Bruno Mars; the former for style, and the latter for the contemporary groove.

    Guess you need to adapt and change to survive in the industry which is only natural. Plus, you need to grow and develop as musicians and always test the edges.
