Desire is brutal

 

Desire without release is brutal.

It is a hunger, a longing, a yearning.

It is a constant ache.

It crucifies nights and tortures days. It distracts, confuses, and leaves the senses shredded. It makes concentration challenging and application impossible.

It steals rational thought.

It refuses to allow peace.

It makes every moment urgent, every second restless.

It fidgets with time. It is pure torment.

Desire without release is brutal.

But relief, when it comes, is heaven.

Seven countries in which I would least like to live

 

As you know, I sometimes make lists.

These are the seven countries in which I would least like to live:

 

LIBYA – Too Hot

KAZAKHSTAN – Too Cold

SAUDI ARABIA – Too Dry

BANGLADESH – Too Wet

MACAU – Too Crowded

GREENLAND – Too Empty

U.S.A. – Too Trump

It will be you

 

When warm sun

kisses my skin

it will be you.

 

When cool breeze

strokes my hair

it will be you.

 

 

When velvet night

holds me close

it will be you.

I posted this a couple of years ago. It is short but I hope it captures a feeling.

Minor mystery

Here is a minor mystery.

These are the top five-page views, by country, on my blog for the last 7 days.

As you would expect, the USA, UK and Canada feature in the top three. They are English-speaking countries where I have a number of followers.

India is perhaps a surprise, but it is a populous country with huge numbers of English speakers – and past Twitter retweets of my words by a famous Indian film star has helped me gain followers. Still, it is unexpected and requires closer scrutiny.

But Portugal? It is a non-English speaking country – although to be fair, all the Portuguese people I’ve met speak good English. But the entire population is maybe 10.5 million souls.

The answer is not that I have developed a huge fan base in that very lovely country.

It is one person regularly viewing over and over.

In fact, 1,727 times in the last three months.

Now I wonder why.

Ten obituaries I would not be sorry to wake up to

 

Sometimes I get angry and think the world would be a better place if shit didn’t always float to the top when it comes to those in high office. And I check the news every morning in hope that natural causes will have culled a few.

This list could be four times longer, but these are the first ten that came to mind.

 

In alphabetical order:

Isaias Afewerki – Eritrean leader and mass murderer with rivers of innocent blood on his hands. Yet no one does anything.

Bashar al-Assad – utter Syrian filth who. among many other things, uses chemical weapons on his own people. Will do anything to stay in power.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi – possibly (hopefully) already dead disgusting ISIS animal  who has twisted Islam into an excuse to commit atrocities in Arab countries and all over the world

Tony Blair – Ex UK Prime Minister – hypocrite, liar, and unpunished war criminal who was given a UN role as envoy to the Middle East (and secretly took money from Saudi Arabia while doing it) after killing thousands of Iraqi men, women and children and helping create even greater instability in the region.

Recep Tayyip Erdoğan – nasty power crazed Turkish Dictator who has turned a fledgling secular democracy emerging from military control into a brutal dictatorship .

Kim Jong-un – narcissistic, lying, celebrity leader of North Korea with no morality whatsoever and the emotional temperament of a 4-year-old. Widely ridiculed and yet feared by the rest of the world as one of the two most dangerous men on the planet.

Aung San Suu Kyi – hypocritical racist leader of Myanmar incorrectly awarded Nobel Peace Prize who is ethnically cleansing her country and denying it to the world.

Robert Mugabe – Zimbabwean murderer who has completely destroyed his country through corruption, brutality and fear. Why doesn’t he die?

Vladimir Putin – nasty, brutal, corrupt, ruthless, bloody-minded, cruel, evil, but cunning (certainly the most cunning and competent in this list) Russian tyrant and possibly the richest crook in the world

Donald Trump –  narcissistic, lying, celebrity leader of USA with no morality whatsoever and the emotional temperament of a 4-year-old. Widely ridiculed and yet feared by the rest of the world as one of the two most dangerous men on the planet.

 

This list will no doubt offend some people. People are so easily offended these days by almost anything. Personally I find the impact of extreme intolerance in the shape of war, greed, corruption, extreme religious views (of any faith), brutality, poverty, oppression, genocide, raw racism, etc to be things worth getting offended by.

Not all lives matter to me

ALL lives matter

It is not a cliché. Or a slogan. Or a wish. It is a truth.

Whatever sex, shade of skin, home country or country of origin, sexual orientation, religion, age, background, wealth or poverty, tribe, social standing, class or caste.

ALL lives matter.

Not only do all lives matter. But they all matter EQUALLY.

Nobody but nobody, is better or more important than anyone else.

But whoever you are, wherever you are in the world, if other innocent lives matter so little to you that you are prepared to kill, maim, rape, bully, terrorise, harass, subjugate or damage other lives …

Then your life does not matter to me

Not one little bit.
