so i had my phone picked from my jacket pocket last night! in retrospect, i think the sister that was sitting across from me was trying to signal me that it was going down! but hey … it is what it is and the beat goes on.
what’s cool is that i was on my way to meet my new homie welela. hella cool peoples! she’s a contact from my other homie kiki joi! i was a little late and when i walked into this spot, chez janou, it was empty. welela greeted me with a smile and a and hug like we’d been long lost friends! she introduced me to benji who was behind the bar. i hadn’t even taken my jacket off and benji notices my shirt. he say’s “cameroon?”. i’m like nah … then i realize i have my cameroon jersey on. we connect! and although i was blown from the pick pocket experience but a few deep breaths, some good convo and a glass of wine and i moved forward!
i guess the other thing that i wanna share is that i think i made some decisions recently about my life.
occasionally i describe mysel f intheis manner …
I HAVE MORE WISDOM THAN INTELLIGENCE
I HAVE MORE SOCIAL THAN FISCAL WEALTH
I HAVE MORE INTEGRITY THAN PRIDE
I HAVE MORE FREEDOM THAN WORRIES!
i have decided that i am willing to give up some of my freedom to gain more fiscal wealth which i hope will in turn provide me with some new freeing experiences.
that’s kinda big for me. i try to be minimal in my support for some of those things that the masses seem to support blindly. i guess you can say that i’ve always been a bit of a anti-conformist. it seemed to go well with my want to blend in and be apart of a community. in this moment i realize that my parent’s small extended family and my positive influences from their community have created a high respect for community and a NEED for it in my life. NOW … if i am who i say i am … i’d challenge that need for community and try to do stuff solo for real!
*damn!!! i hate it when i think myself into situations that make more work for me!*
ok … i gotta go wrap my head around this … and go get a new phone!
