A Song of Truth

the black lullaby
I’m troubled. Not because something is wrong but because, for the first time, everything is right. The world is full of people who care, people who want to give you chances (again and again), people who are full of love and kindness and forgiveness, people whom you can place your trust in and who won’t let you down. Something is ...

Breakfast at Forty Forty

the black lullaby
The natural alarm outside my window – these two birds I’ve never really seen – went off at approximately 6.45 this morning. After a night of random dreaming, the day was welcomed with a smile. I left the house about 90 minutes later and I’m pretty sure my trishaw driver was recovering from a serious hangover. Either that or he ...

The Open Minded Farce

the black lullaby
Almost a decade ago, when I first started working, I was exposed to ways of life that I had been brought up to disapprove of. My peers, at the time, explained to me how important it was that I keep an open mind about such things, lest I be considered ‘square’. And I was very, very square. No, not just ...

Dream Summoning

the black lullaby
Last night as I lay down to sleep, I felt a calling, a strange calling that I cannot explain. There were no voices and there was no presence; just a feeling of being pulled away from where I was and towards something, something unnatural. I told myself that I was just tired and falling asleep [...]

Faith & The Faithless

the black lullaby
“Father, forgive me, for I have lost my faith.” The boy says, afraid to look his maker in the eye. “I asked for happiness and I received it. I asked for stability and it was mine. I asked for many impossible things and they were made possible. And yet, I’ve lost my faith.” He looks out the window at the ...

The Year of Learning

the black lullaby
I look back on this year and all I can seem to say is, WOW. According to the Chinese calendar, this was the year of the Tiger, possibly why it has moved by so fast and ferocious. But speedy as it has been, the lessons it has left behind have been breathtaking, frightening, insightful, life-changing and beautiful. 2010 has taken ...

Results of The Feed Brandon Project

the black lullaby
One month, only rice, 3 meals a day. Ok so I may have cheated about 3 times, but that was to be expected no? And what are the results? I’ve lost one kilo!!! I cannot believe it and I’m not even going to try to understand it. I guess I just have to accept the fact that no matter how ...

The Feed Brandon Project

the black lullaby
Staring at the mirror last night (which is something I do all the time), I realized that I have to do something about my weight. I’ve always blamed my slim frame on high metabolism and while that may very well be the case I have to admit I don’t help myself much with all the junk food. I live on ...
