Can’t get enough of this song/instrumental piece
Why is that we try to salvage what we have, only after we realize we are about to lose that special something? Is it enough to realize the mistake and ask for reconciliation? Or is it easier to simply let go and let live?
This is one of the three versions of Flavour’s song ‘Nwa Baby (Ashawo)’. I think my housemates are getting annoyed because I have had this song on repeat for the last couple of weeks (yes, weeks). I like to think of it as my little wake up alarm early in the morning and some Nigerian flavor in my morning cup. I haven’t figured out if I like it because of the colors in the video or if it is because the beat makes me question why I am not on the dance floor in a club. (Or maybe there was some subconscious bias because the video was shot in South Africa…regardless, this is some good music!)
Random wall art I came across while walking around on the Lower East Side. There is so much going on even though the artwork is not too complex. I think it should be titled Ecstasy Meets Despair and Passion…the little heart at the bottom says it all.
Sometimes there is the feeling of enveloping ourselves within ourselves and hiding in our secret, often forgotten places. That sounds a little depressing, but I think there is little room for a butterfly and sunshine interpretation of the work.
