The Unbearable Heaviness of Being

My quest for the eternal lightness

I picked up these reviews and they are proofs to how it got taste buds all confused

  • Spicy; citrus and a tinge of coriander
  • Spicy, pepper, banana, coriander come to mind, maybe a bit of lemon?
  • Vanilla and wheat
  • Smell of tropical fruits including pineapple, mixed with a moderate alcohol whiff

Why I like it?

It has such complex profile! And of course, it’s yummy too.


I’ve changed my aquarium landscape. The rainbows (I am NOT talking about the rainbow which speaks of the promise made to Noah after the flood) look happier now, with more curves and caves to swim through. ‘Aquaria-therapy’ has always been useful for me – a time I selfishly keep, to ‘gaze at the fire’.

New landscapes challenge us to respond by making adjustments, allowing space for emerging thoughts and definitions, and being humble. My rainbows are challenged to adapt to the new ‘main’ area in which they swim. Favorite playing spots will have to be abandoned and new ones are discovered. Intolerance to criticism and differing views exposes our desperate refusal and denial of the emergence of the new frontier.


I have just set up a new salt-water tank. A humble start with slight problem taking a snapshot of its new inhabitants. More pictures later.


I miss playing the saxophone.

It’s been quite a while since I ran my fingers through the keys of the old king.jpgKing before releasing her into the possession of another’s hands. She was a faithful companion since my early involvement in gospel music. And I am feeling extra sentimental today. The faithful hands who’d weave together our weekend music are no longer jazzing their blues. They no longer feel the beats as they’d use to. 

I wonder when I’d pick her up again. I wonder when they’ll get to feel the beats again.
