Dreams – A Manifestation of the Subconcious?

I don’t have dreams that often. The ones that I do, I remember. I remember well after I have had them…

I had a dream recently. It was something that got more than I thought it would. I spent a good chunk of that day trying to erase the memory. But as I said…

Are dreams a representation of what we really think and feel?

I don’t know why I am putting so much thought into this – possibly because of the book I just finished reading…

Anyway, I thought that possibly I might forget about it if I put it down somewhere.

What was the dream? Well explicitly writing what it was about would defeat the purpose now, wouldn’t it?

Oddly enough I another dream that confused me quite a bit – I was hanging out with someone with whom our interaction has only been the occasional ‘hi’ in a group chat


The Empty Man

I haven’t been watching horror lately. There just hasn’t been anything that has caught my attention. I watched this one mostly because I wanted something different. In my head, I was, “Oh goody, another {insert noun} Man movie”

Where The Bye Bye Man and Slender Man left a lot to be desired, this is how The Empty Man got it right…

My Terabithia – Are You Ready For The Next Class?

I held a class where I taught you how to build your innner world, your haven, your Terabithia.

That lesson was held in my Terabithia, but just a small part of it. I thought before I have the next class – which I know a lot of you have been waiting for – I would take you on a tour of the expanse of mine:

To The Greatest Bond Ever.

I was having an okay day until I heard that Sir Sean Connery passed…

This completely changed my entire mood. I’m heartbroken – utterly and completely. Many have played Bond, none were Bond.

Sean Connery embodied Bond perfectly for me. He was THE BEST BOND

There have been a few people in the public eye who’s passing got to me – this one is personal, very personal.

My dad introduced me to Bond when I was young. Watching Dr. No with him is one of the memories I hold dear that have left of him.

My love and interesting in James Bond was spawned then. Through all the movies Sir Connery starred in; Dr. No, From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, You Only Live Twice, Diamonds Are Forever. Subsequently, there has not been a movie that I’ve watched that stars Sean that I do not like.

Thank you for the memories and portrayal of what is expected of a man.

Here’s a glass to you

God speed Sir. Connery. You will forever be my Bond


How Will You Raise Your Children?

When WhatsApp added statuses, I was very against it – I still am. I don’t like the concept of duplicating features across apps – even if you do own all of them.

Whilst most people post memes or things meant to entertain, I have a friend of mine who amongst all the the chaos imparts words, words of wisdom.

A couple of days ago this is what he shared:

My son will never have to deal with toxic masculinity because he will be raised with love as I was. He’ll be raised to respect women, have a gentle heart and never abuse physically or verbally. Never insult a woman or be derogatory towards her because at the end of the day we all came into this world through a woman’s body.

If you are raised with enough love, laughter and kindness you will never have a toxic muscular personality. The problem with society is that they frown on something they do not want to fix. That’s like staring at a toilet filled with shit and expecting the shit to go down the drain without flushing it.

Teach your sons love and emotion.

That’s how you stop a gender based violence pandemic,,,

My daughter will not be a victim of toxic feminism as well. There are a lot of bitter and spiteful women masquerading as feminists who are not happy with other women’s happiness. They want you to engage in their bitter parades so they can finally have friends who share something in common with.

Actual feminism is okay. Then there are these ladies who feel fulfilled by treating every man as a bad one just because they made bad choices in their lives. You could ask them the definition of feminism and they will start attacking men for no reason – because the bitterness is strong. Toxic feminism is like pyramid scheme – recruit one bitter lady and get fulfilled.

Protect your happiness.

Toxic Feminism is the reason for Toxic Masculinity and vice versa. Both go hand in hand. Show me a girl who is bitter towards men and I’ll show you the guy who caused it. In the same vein, show me a guy who is disrespectful towards women and I’ll show you the girl who triggered him to “be a man”.

Solve both problems, don’t aggravate the situation for the next generation by not looking at both sides of the coin.

Nightwish – Of Symphonic Brilliance

Recently I’ve been listening to Nightwish…

The thing that drew me to them was something unrelated to music. One of their songs starts off with the quote said by Richard Dawkins:

The deepest solace lies in understanding
This ancient unseen stream
A shudder before the beautiful
