The first page of a new chapter…..
Depending on the parameters, any day, technically speaking, from a strictly empirical point of view could be the beginning of a New Year……
Convention has it that 1 January is the beginning of the calendar year….
Happy New year and welcome to my first blog post for 2018, and in time for the first supermoon for the year
A local Zim musician Tehn Diamond shared a twitter challenge to giveaway wallpapers with a personalized power word.
My word was Mlilo and this is my wallpaper
Mlilo means fire in Xitsonga language (also Moto in shona language)
Fire is my totem amongst strangers I know who my tribal kin are….
Its uncommon to have an inanimate totem, imagine telling people that your spirit animal is fire. (you can read more about my totem in Zimbabwe here)
I am guessing that if dragons were real they would have been my totem and our praise song when you were announcing us in public or thanking us or just being super respectful or down right flattering; you would begin…
The first flame,
His most royal spontaneous combustor,
Consumer of all leaving nothing but ash,
Burner of things,
Bringer of light,
Chaser of darkness,
Giver of warmth
Keeper of secrets
and Maker of Heroes
I guess if we were characters in game of thrones we would be House Targaryen
Fire fascinates me, fire burns and all fires burn its something you learn for yourself
……This year is mine
Cos I remember looking in the mirror last year
Like, this is it, this is our year I swear
Like The Year Before That
And The Year Before That
Like the year before that
And the year before that
So I’m back up in the mirror singing the same song
I’m back up in the mirror like THIS YEAR’S YOURS
And the year before that . . . .
You might want to stand back I don’t know how hot I am going to get but….. flame on!!!
Thanks tehn I play this jam at the beginning of every year as I did the year before that and the year before that!!!!!
