Eccentric and Bent

Come on a fantastic voyage in the backwaters of my mind.


Do you agree with the sentiment expressed in this post? Do we share the same roots? I think we do share the same roots even if we have been transplanted into different soil. We have adapted to the nutrients and moisture content of our soil but we all came from the same plot of land originally. Revel in that understanding and we can love each other without reservations.

We are all chocolate!

Sweet and divine we are,

descending from the dirt of the earth,

the fruit of life given by Theobroma,

food worthy of the gods themselves,

our roots in Africa and its vast diaspora,

cocooned by a protective shell,

our seeds cultivated to be roasted until ‘blackened’,

how our darkness has pathed way for a melting pot of shades,

enough variety to suit ones preference and palette,

white chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate…

adaptable in any way, texture and taste,

yet still as attractive to the eye,

because no chocolate can deny itself of its ancestry…

what would chocolate be without a trace of the cocoa bean?

simply a lost soul of artificial sweetness with no substance.

so lets celebrate life together!

For the earth gave us this gift so we can understand the meaning of indulgence!

savour the moments as a piece melts on your tongue…
