Back on the website

Ladies and gentlemen, I am back on my website after months of neglect, total neglect. I feel so bad but this is what it is. I want to blame the Facebook habit for keeping me away. In the past few months I have been posting so much on Facebook that by the time I am done there, there is no energy to write anything on my own real estate on the net.

Deactivating Facebook account, again

So I did something quite drastic. I deactivated my Facebook account yesterday. It was time to give it a break. I wanted to be away from my Facebook account for a few weeks but was very disappointed to learn that Facebook can only allow me a maximum of 7 days. This means that after 7 days my account is reactivated. They know that I am hooked and will make sure that I am back on the platform. Anyway I am making the most of my time away from the website.

As you might know I tried to quit completely in the past but that did not work. I found myself going back after a while. Well now instead of saying I have quit Facebook, I just say I am taking a short break. I feel that this puts me under much less pressure. I can live with this kind of pressure. It is manageable.

The music, the music

As I type this I am listening to a song called Ndincedeni by Dalom Kids. I did a dance earlier on and am stopping every now and then to let the music sink in. Have you ever seen anyone type and dance at the same time, that’s me? The song is on repeat. I can’t get enough of it.

Apple Music shows the music was released in 1992 and after all this time, it still feels so fresh. The way I love music sometimes, it is absolutely crazy. It’s like this is the very first time I have heard this song. The instruments are speaking a language of their own.

I would have put a YouTube link for the song but the thought of annoying ads in the videos discourages me.

Let me end with a few words from the song, actually it seems to be almost all the words from the song]:

Iya iya holololo
Iya iya holololo
Iya iya ho-oo
Iya iya holololo
Iya iya holololo
Iya iya ho-oo
Hosana hoo-oo
Hosana hoo-oo
Hosana hoo-oo
Hosana hoo-oo
Sicela uncedo kuni bantu bakithi
Angisakwazi nokuya eskolweni holololo ma
Awuwa lawo-oo
Hosana ho-oo
Hosana ho-oo
Awuwa lawo-o
Angisakwazi nokuya eskolweni holololo ma
Angina nempahla yokungxiba yoh

Here is a snippet below, feeling the music and trying to take it all in while trying to finish this post. Words alone cannot describe the beauty of the connection with this music. I am so grateful for this. Welcome to my world.

One day I might tell you what the song means. One day I will speak these languages fluently my brothers and sisters. I am getting there slowly but surely.

For now I am grateful for the gift of music. Thank you Dalom Kids

Lost in music, what a song, Ndincedeni by Dalom Kids
