WELL HELLO THAR!




Been an awfully long time since me last postage. But here I am again for a wee bit n don't quite know when I'll be back again.. 
And I have decided to reveal the reason why... (big fanfare..) 
I am reading for entrance exams to study English at the University of Helstinki!! Weeee.. So that has been the great big mysterious absence and silence in the blog realm. So hopefully u can all gimme big ol helping thoughts & vibes for this undertaking, because I will sure as shit be needing them=) So thank u in advance & bless u all! 


Some music & documentaries:








MAd funky stuff! 








Great doc bout the history n masters of the turntables!






Graffiti doc. Magnificent scenes of New York in the early 80's!
Wish I coulda grown up in that time & place..










& this rather unrelated doc about the things that are happening in the world. Makes you think. & tho it may be rather uncomfortable for many it's well worth the watch! Open ur eyes n see the truth.




& le Prophet:


Then a ploughman said, Speak to us of Work.


And he answered, saying:


You work that you may keep pace with the earth and the soul of the earth. 


For to be idle is to become a stranger unto the seasons, and to step out of life's procession that marches in majesty and proud submission towards the infinite. 


When you work you are a flute through whose heart the whispering of the hours turns to music. 


Which of you would be a reed, dumb and silent, when all else sings together in unison?


Always you have been told that work is a curse and labour a misfortune. 


But I say to you that when you work you fulfil a part of earth's furthest dream, assigned to you when that dream was born,


And in keeping yourself with labour you are in truth loving life,


And to love life through labour is to be intimate with life's inmost secret.


But if you in your pain call birth an affliction and the support of the flesh a curse written upon your brow, then I answer that naught but the sweat of your brow shall wash away that which is written. 


You have been told also that life is darkness, and in your weariness you echo what was said by the weary.


And I say that life is indeed darkness save when there is urge, 


And all urge is blind save when there is knowledge. 


And all knowledge is vain save when there is work,


And all work is empty save when there is love;


And when you work with love you bind yourself to yourself, and to one another, and to God. 


And what is it to work with love?


It is to weave the cloth with threads drawn from your heart, even as if your beloved were to wear that cloth.


It is to build a house with affection, even if your beloved were to dwell in that house. 


It is to sow seeds with tenderness and reap the harvest with joy, even as if your beloved were to eat the fruit. 


It is to charge all things you fashion with a breath of your own spirit. 


And to know that all the blessed dead are standing about you and  watching.


Often have I heard you say, as if speaking in sleep, ´He who works in marble, and finds the shape of his own soul in the stone, is nobler than he who ploughs the soil.


├índ he who seizes the rainbow to lay it on a cloth in the likeness of man, is more than he who makes the sandals for our feet.´


But I say, not in sleep, but in the overwakefulness of noontide, that the wind speaks not more sweetly to the giant oaks than to the least of all blades of grass;


And he alone is great who turns the voice of the wind into a song made sweeter by his own loving. 


And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better than you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy. 


For if you bake bread with indifference, you bake a bitter bread that feeds but half man's hunger. 


And if you grudge the crushing of grapes, your grudge distils a poison in the wine. 




And if you sing though as angels, and love not the singing, you muffle man's ears to the voices of the day and the voices of the night. 






Thar you go!


Now Ima go read with love=)




LOtsa love to all!
