Why The World Is A Totally Awesome Place

Coldplay's front-man, Chris Martin sang, "We live in a beautiful world, yes we do, yes we do"

You'll agree with him when you see the video below: a compilation by BuzzFeed on why, to them "The World Is A Totally Awesome Place", and yes the world is!

This should put a smile on your face :)

Re: Grief

Yesterday marked one year that I lost my best friend and mentor. He was 70. I wrote about him here: Grief!

...I experienced a state of grief again when on March 6, I got the news that my best friend - he was 70- died of a stroke. I tried to cry, but I couldn't. The tears however poured out of my eyes on March 31st when we did his memorial. Again, I realized that was the last! And I cried! 

Even though he's not here, he's still very much alive, and his legacy lives on. He certainly left a part of himself here before he departed. And for that, I'm grateful. I'm glad I met him. He was not only a best friend and mentor, he also made himself available in the role of a Father. I called him my second Dad.

There is much more to be said, but having said this, Live on Osborne Wright (1942 - 2012)

#ThrowbackThursday: August 1996

This would actually be the first ever throwback picture of myself I've ever posted anywhere.

So, go ahead and enjoy it :)

I might just do more of this in the future.

I was 6. My Little Brother was 3. We're with our Uncle. Sleepy + Hungry lol.

Hope For Humanity

Despair no more, there is still hope for us as a race!

At least, as long as things like these continue to happen. Just browsing the internet a few minutes ago that put a smile on my face. Thought I'd share with you guys. It might reassure you that it's beautiful to be human! The connections we forge with other people when we allow ourselves to, and the pleasure of cherishing and valuing those connections we've made, and the opportunity to make new ones...It's just all fascinating to me.

Check the videos below, and let 'em put a smile on your faces as well.

I've wanted to post something for a while, but for some reason, I've been hitting a dry spell. So, instead, I'm going to blog about my dry spell. And in the process ask you readers a question: "What do you do when it seems like you've ran out of inspiration?" I wanna do something with this blog, just don't know what yet to be honest!

By the way, below is what I'm listening to while typing this.

Happy New Year!!!! Goals, Changes, etc.

Happy New Year!!!! It's better late than never, they say! And hey, yes, I'm still alive :) I do apologize though for my inactivity on this blog. It's kind of surprising that people actually still visit here or even pay attention to the blog. See, it's a new year, and I've learned a lot. It's easy to make a promise/commitment, and it's even easier to break it. A promise I'm tempted to make of course is that I'll be diligent in updating the blog, BUT...

NO, I won't make any such promises, all I'll attempt to do is try as much as I can to make the blog active. I'll post pictures of pussies erm, cats. And dogs, other furry (not necessarily) creatures that might be seen as cute, videos that make me laugh, or cry, or inspire me, poems (of my own as well as others), my attempts at writing stories, and of course occasionally when it calls for it, I'll pen down a few or two things that I happen to be thinking about as I've been known to do in times past. Heck, maybe I'll even get myself to review music, movies, books and stuff.

So, here's to a new year, and a new approach. I just overall look forward to what the year holds really.

Last year, on my 22nd birthday, I decided to make a draft of goals I hope to achieve for my 22nd year, before I turned 23. Yikes, I feel old!!!

I've failed already for some of the goals. And I've rewarded myself for those failures. Weird, right? So, I've decided it's wise to make a few adjustments, but the goals remain the same.

Clicking the picture will direct you to my WORDPRESS BLOG - Of Dreams and Deeds. It's a project I'm involved in with the aim of tracking and documenting the small steps we take (me primarily) - our "deeds" - in the journey towards accomplishing our dreams, some of which we've had since we were kids. Because of certain circumstances, we decide to "grow up" and we stop dreaming! I on the other hand haven't stopped yet, or at the very least trying not to, and the blog is my testament to that! Read more ABOUT this in the ABOUT SECTION OF THE BLOG.

With that said, it'll be a pleasure, if I can get some followers over there, so we can all continue that conversation about dreams and visions. I promise it'll be worth it!

Again, happy new year and thank you all for reading in times past.

I'm actually deciding to changing the url of the blog (to, and the name too. It's all in the attempt to get used to my name, self and everything that I am; outside of aliases, monikers or screen names.... You know the new year, new you thing? Maybe that has something to do with it... or not.

Well, I am Ayokunle Falomo and I approve this message.

This morning, I was thinking about this question: What is the one thing you hope to achieve before you die? ... And then I receive news about the death of one of my Aunts. Yesterday, I was reading one of Williams Carlos Williams' poems and came across these words: "...Death is not the end of it."

We only have few years here, and then it's over.

That's life...and it's what you do with it that matters...before death comes.

...And it'll surely come.

It's hardly the years in life that counts, but the life in those years. And what better way to use it, that for this: SERVICE!!!
...And there is still no cure for these thoughts I have...that I'm here for a reason, and that my lungs won't cease...until I'm done. Did you know, that I am not done!
