An apology to the reader: Rise

Dear reader we’ve had a peep at Mzansi Magic’s (DStv Channel 161) EPG (Electronic Program Guide) for tonight’s schedule and we regret to inform you that instead of ‘Rise’ the channel has ‘Alex Cross’ scheduled for 22:00.

Choice

/An act of choosing/the right or ability to choose/

 

Presently I have decided to go with two definitions given for the current word-expo. With that said here we go – Imagine that you are a child of not more than 6 years of age in a candy section of a super store with your paps or moms out on a little shopping spree to stoke up the supplies at home.

By this time at your age it has been hammered into your soft snug skull that you cannot demand sweeties until the starches, oils, spreads and meats and drinks have been acquired. Unless of course if you are full of tricky tantrums when you do not get your way with your folks and are able to demand the goodies immediately when you arrive at the super store because your parents yields to your manipulations, this qualifies you to a spoiled brat strand. Ideally speaking that is, the second scenario is not appealing to people who want their young to survive as adults. Good natured adults like your folks have made hay while time allowed, they broke you ‘’cause they want their little one to grow up in a responsible way and like the Setswana saying goes le gong le ojwa lo sa le metsi (you have to guide the growth of a tree so that it does not grow crocked and not bear fruits once it sets).

A world where relationships relies more on mediating utilities than real time interaction. A world ruptured by the freedom of the dawn of the internet. We are not talking about fixed bodies or entities for all is in a flux.
