O Captain, my Robin!

In lament, for Robin Williams who took his life on 11th August 2014.

Oh, Weeping woman try to smile; Like the coming dawn; Most of us are sad it’s true; Still we must go on – Eagles!_My_Captain! (as popularized by Dead Poets Society 1989)

O Captain! My Captain! our fearful trip is done;
The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won;
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring:

confusion wont be my epitaph

And with dust in throat I crave -> Only knowledge will I save -> To the game you stay a slave..
And the Earth becomes my throne -> I adapt to the unknown -> Under wandering stars I’ve grown
By myself but not alone -> I ask no one…
And my ties are severed clean -> Less I have, the more I gain -> Off the beaten path I reign
Buddhist, Catholic, Dharmic, Islamic -> Call me what you will! -> And you will, yeah!

Articles of Faith

To Reinforce the memory of the people I have loved and cherished on our short journeys together, I wish to ANONYMOUSLY list out all the articles of Faith.

I guess I got to come away with a beautiful point of view from Bellevue. The icing on the cake was the Champagne and Toast I made to the Lion Hearted!

Before I begin, I leave you with the haunting/fleeting memory of Outside the Wall

thank you england

I was there in 1997 when Elton John sang “goodbye englands rose”, my niece is British and so are many of the loveliest people I know (the likes of David Gilmour, George Harrison)

Dear Lionhearted,

With Zebras to symbolise the black and white lessons you taught us as you spread the truly catholic message of One World.

Our center (Greenwich) literally, industrially, poetically and symbolically, for it is truly English that unites us. Read more »

Introducing Sophia

Dear beloved members of my cosmic family,

If you happened by, you may want to consider getting on our list Sophia – the place for religiosity, not religion. Cause we don’t ever want to be singing *losing my religion*, instead focusing on Our Similarities, nor do we ever want to have a reluctant Messiah or have to burn anyone at the stake. All that is PAST – in the DARK ages. Theyre over now, Jesus and Mohammed helped us get over them. Read more »


Print Version:

What has America taught the world? Well everything the British left out?
What did the British leave out? Well stuff the Japanese taught us… ad… absurdum…

America taught us
– To love thy rocks and rills, thy woods and templed hills
– as I touch my foot upon this fertile soil, I feel the source of our creation! (jimmy messina / its all right here)
– and to every other beautiful shrine in this world, its the place where religion is so alive and well
– where heroes are born everyday and are proud to be of one higher calling (Green Lantern) Read more »

what makes tracey tick

When thinking about past loves and Richard Bach’s magnetism trick a few years ago, I realized enough time had been wasted flogging dead horses.

Love would be better served by looking to the future and imaginging attributes and setting expectations.

Like the Princess of Fanstasia, she needed a name, so I dipped down memory lane and thought of that haunting old character from Wilbur Smith’s Diamond Hunters which I had read some 10+ years ago.

Tracey van der Byl, step brother and lover of Johnny Lance. A contender could have been Jennifer Cavilleri (daughter of Phil) but never was, much as I loved Love Story.

Why Tracey, I dunno – ask Johnny. something about the way he went through it all. The duo made an indelible impression on me. And I can still remember the part where I was helplessly crying in my grandmother’s house when Jacobus tells Johnny – get out of my nest and FLY cuckoo – apt words then, more apt now as I think to that Holy Father up above.

What makes tracey tick? Guess I will have to meet her to find out 🙂

The guy from before my Trinity

NB: Also read the title as “early influences” or “key differentiators”.

Variety is the spice of life.

Stacked one on top of the other, I have 3 parts of me – Islam, Vedanta and Christianity (read that as peace, knowledge and love). No part can survive without the others.

Vertically (or Longitudinally) I have 3 members of my Holy Trinity, viz: Read more »
