Solidarity

Yesterday was a day of empowerment! As a white male South African, I represent so much ugliness to people who have been affected by white oppression. I acknowledge that. I will fight for what I believe in. I will raise my nothing voice and contribute. Why? Because I have a label of privilege, let me use it. Because I am white, let me use it. Because I am a minority, I have to use it. Not for me. I do it for those who hate me most. For the ideals in which I believe. I understand the distrust. But still I rise for something greater than myself.

Natural… Really?

I just don’t know anymore… You throw the word Natural at me and I feel like it should be the easiest concept to understand, I should be able to easily write about it, right? Maybe not so much… Is it… Continue Reading →

Beloved – A Book Review

Is it possible to say that an entire novel is a metaphor? Well I just inferred that it was, so I guess that question is settled… When I was was in my twenties I commenced a BA in English Literature,… Continue Reading →

You… Art…

Art is artificial; a representational rendering of the real. Yes it is powerful, can sometimes move us more than the actual real, but this is because of the stylistic application which has been employed to create the rendering, which is… Continue Reading →

#Personal-CyberInfrastructure-Whatsit

We live in an age where our digital selves are an extension of who we are. It’s a profound statement, but even the most seemingly mundane of mind (and that’s not to be offensive to the mundane of mind, or… Continue Reading →
