Words to the Wise

Starting today…

  • Today, before you say an unkind word, think of someone who can’t speak.
  • Before you complain about the taste of your food, think of someone who has nothing to eat.
  • Before you complain about your mate, husband or wife, think of someone who’s crying to God for a companion.
  • Before you complain about your children, think of someone who desires children but cannot have them.
  • Before you argue about the size or cleanliness of your house, think about the people living in the streets.
  • Before whining about the distance you have to drive to work, think of someone who walks the same distance on their feet.
  • When you are tired and complain about your job, think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.
  • Before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another, remember that not one of us is perfect and without sin.
  • And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down, put a smile on your face and think: you’re alive and still around.

This last picture is the granite and marble floor of Akhenaten’s palace in Armana. This was created BC and look how bold and solid the color still is. It is in better condition than a mural painted outside on the wall of a carryout store in an urban neighborhood. I took this picture through two layers of glass with camera set on museum mode with no flash. To imagine that this belonged to a building buried deep under water and sand for over thousands of years and still vibrant in detail and color is beyond words. That is one thing that blows my mind about many of the tombs in the Valley of the Kings, coffins, and chambers. The colors. So fresh looking. So new. Yet so ancient and unreal.

If music on this page clashes with this video, watch it here.


You don’t have to understand the words because they roll out the vibe on point. And they don’t have to pull an image because they serve the goods tight. Egyptian music and the roll out of Egyptian hip-hop show that Egypt will always have one strong asset always going for her, the vibe and the electricity that flows through her people. Just feel these guys out and you will know what I mean. These two have that slickitty slickness. Believe me.

BTW, they aren’t Ghost or Rafiq.

We Are All Human

No one man should be viewed as having more to offer the world than the other. We are all equals and every human being has something of value in their skillset and/or composition which makes them unique, such as every country has their own unique resources to share with the world. Never discount somebody based on material wealth, for true wealth is what cannot be seen. Never discount a country by what they can’t provide your country, while their resources may benefit other lands in need. For there to be harmony and peace, everything must be balanced. There should always be justice. Eliminate the concept of division by class, skills, race, income, and nationality. Every human requires food and water to survive. Every man has a dream. Every man suffers and every man loves. We are equals with a common pulse and need to survive. To breathe. Let us recognize that we are all part of each other. We are all human.
