Artist: Labrinth Song: Jealous Album: Take me to the truth I had youtube on whilst writing my last post and this song came on… I immediately changed windows, listened, replayed replayed and replayed… Where was I when this song made the rounds in 2014? Raw, pure, heartbreak…in the music, every line and every lyric. It got me thinking about how much fire there is in unrequited love. Got me thinking of my first heartbreak..haha! Oh heavens!

I got to see my sister Solange live earlier this year and it was superb…as expected! The spirit of excellence definitely runs in the family! She was the headliner at Piknik i parken (Picnic in the park). It rained the whole day but we came prepared rain coats and all. Solange is art and art is Solange. I think that sums it all up. Everything was in sync, sound, voice and her expressive dance moves. Her dancer’s moves were choreographed…

Anyone else watched the movie or read the book? Room? I finished reading the book last week and then watched the movie. Although I really loved Jacob Tremblay’s portrayal of Jack.

On her way to University she met Old Nick who pretended to have…

Her artistry is in a class of its own. Ms Lauryn Hill is a creative…
