Christmas Time

Christmas time around here is...



No time to make up your bed before leaving for work....

In Port Louis, where I work, its too much...


Jeans....



By the kilos-who-cares-about-display-shoes...



Watches for all tastes....

They are cheap and work fine. They only stop ticking when you wear them...


Toy street sellers urging kids to cry and scream so mummy would buy them these beautiful toys...

Christmas time is also...


Chritmas decorations...


Nice window displays...


Weird window displays (considering the weather!)...


Scary window displays...

Last but not least, Christmas Time is ...



Too much work....


Don't Drink And Drive signs...



Dozing off in buses after a hard working day. But....


Oh and Chritmas here is also...


Very green!

Strength


You are Strength


Courage, strength, fortitude. Power not arrested in the act of judgement, but passing on to further action, sometimes obstinacy.


This is a card of courage and energy. It represents both the Lion's hot, roaring energy, and the Maiden's steadfast will. The innocent Maiden is unafraid, undaunted, and indomitable. In some cards she opens the lion's mouth, in others she shuts it. Either way, she proves that inner strength is more powerful than raw physical strength. That forces can be controlled and used to score a victory is very close to the message of the Chariot, which might be why, in some decks, it is Justice that is card 8 instead of Strength. With strength you can control not only the situation, but yourself. It is a card about anger and impulse management, about creative answers, leadership and maintaining one's personal honor. It can also stand for a steadfast friend.

A Toaster Story

He's but a form under the rumpled covers on a rumpled bed. He moves and I sees him waking up. His head emerges from under the covers and Ii note that his hair is too long. But nice too long. He blinks and rubs his eyes. The gesture looks so childlike but there's nothing childlike about him. He throws but the covers and he is naked. He stretches and yawns and walks lazily out of the room. Barefoot. He's heading to the kitchen. I follow him. He's making coffee. I watch him take the bread and look around for the knife. He sees it, picks it up and slices the bread. Its stale but it does not matter. He inserts the bread into the toaster. The next thing I know the toaster is hissing and throwing sparks and he falls on the cold cold floor with a thud. Electrocuted. I'd heard his roommate telling him the toaster was good to be thrown away. I look at him and think, Why take risks when you're naked .
