This isn’t so much something that none of US had seen or known; to some extent.

But then I know as well,

If someone doesn’t Switch on the Light in the room;

You’d very easily not see in the Darkness where you’re going.


This Strangeness I’m referring to here…

Nationally in South Africa and Internationally as I’ve come to believe–

The Oscar Pistorius Murder Case had shocked a great many people.



I’m not going to get in on this.

I’m not going to Bore you with something Any-and-Everybody can see on the Telly!


It’s just a kind of reference to the idea of Strange…

Hence here it comes.


Everyone wants to know the Truth.

They need to know.

They want to understand; as if any of this will Change a single fact.


But that is just the Strangeness of the Situation!


Think about it,

When last did you drive past an Accident scene?

When last did you witness an argument?

Just what is it that you want to KNOW from keeping track of the Trail?


That is the same when you pass any Accident or see a Fight or Argument…

You’re not really going to Part-take in it,

BUT inherently we want to KNOW…


What is this that you might wonder, what is it that we so Strangely want to know?


No matter who you are,

No matter where you’re from,

No matter what you’ve got,

No matter what you’re working toward–


There’s (in my opinion) TWO factors we’ve all got in common… Possibly more, but just stay with me on this one…     :- )


What we share no matter what is,

Life & Death.


If life is hard then you have a few people you can speak to about this.

Understand where someone is coming from with the “Hard Knock Life” biting at your Heals &

Have a common ‘Enemy’ that will want to knock you down.


But even more than that,


It’s so final &

It’s so uncertain…

It fascinates us far beyond what anyone would like to Admit to!


It’s something that we know of very little &

Something that everyone,

No matter who you are,

We’re ALL heading toward!


As that song state;

“Nobody Escapes Life Alive…”


We Look and try to see, Understand, Reason it out;

We Need to know,

We’ll forever Try to side-step it,


Getting that ONE more Moment, Chance, Second to be alive…


Understanding what happened,

that MIGHT just help you get out of the Way from that

Terrible Tragedy which we Cannot believe took place;

ONLY when it’s Past…


The STRANGEST of all,


We actually THINK there’s something that we can do,

With SO many people around you – when the Proverbial S..t Hits the Fan –

Just what Could you have done,

Stopping this?


Ironically Funny… stopping Life from being!
