Where have I been? Carless Karlos

Dear readers,

My writings over the past few years have attracted your curious minds to this blog, and I feel I should explain what I’ve been up to since my writings have dwindled and ceased since April this year. I have not been idle, but have been doing a combination of activism, excercising, and soul-searching (I think I’ve found some). I have walked/ran at least 350 miles, met hundreds of people, but rest assured that I have an overflowing amount of things I would love to write about if I could find the time. A grouping of aphorisms is usually the easiest to cobble together, and I might release this next (D is for …). But I also have something I am writing that I would like to get out before the solar eclipse coming Monday. Writing this is a nice way to ease in to writing that.

I said you were curious minds, in case you are curious about some of my whereabouts and activities here are some links to your beloved Karlos:

Ode to RMF

You have given me time

to chew on other things

For your nourishment

the baby in me sings

You fight off the bad guys

without being a bad gaian

You have opened me up

in ways I couldn’t imagine

You leave me feeling cleansed

You don’t pick my pocket

having you alone is quite the deal

you’ve been joining me at every meal

but now I think it’s time to reveal

Raw Milk Fast, it’s been Real

Raw Milk Fast, Past Event

 

yo

yo
yo creo
yo creo que
CREO QUE, VENCEREMOS
CREO QUE, VENCEREMOS
CREO QUE, VENCEREMOS
CREO QUE, VENCEREMOS
CREO QUE, VENCEREMOS
CREO QUE, VENCEREMOS
and on and on…

was happy to share this translation I made for first time this evening with a solidarity gathering for the 3 New Brunswick men detained by ICE. Here’s it in the English version sung at the airport ban protest to get a feel for the rhythm of it
