The Scaffold.

Posted: August 16, 2012 in Uncategorized

Earlier on in the evening, I was drawn to the programme ‘ Slow wind’ on Hot 96 which is usually hosted by Chris Okinda every weekday from 6-7 pm.
He talked about the Scaffold that is used during building construction.
I would like to briefly share what he talked of.

A scaffold, for those who may be seeing the term for the first time, as per Merriam Webster dictionary, is; A temporary platform, either supported from below or suspended from above, on which workers sit or stand when performing tasks at heights above the ground.

With no doubt the scaffold are ugly. But then they have to be there for the building to be supported while yet to stand on it’s own, as well as to provide means by which the workers can get up there.

It’s only after a while that the scaffold becomes irrelevant when the building has been completed. During which, the scaffold is removed and the beauty of the building is seen.

Similarly to the buildings, our relationships are characterised by a period define by activities which are more or less the same with scaffolding.
They could be going out for dates or drinks, going to movies, picnics and generally just hanging out.
Many times people fail to realise that they are past the scaffolding stage and that their relationship needs to be taken to another level such as doing more serious stuff like planning for a house or the draded(by men), marriage!

It is only when the scaffold like activities are removed from our relationships that the full joy of the same will be experienced just like the beauty of the house is seen.

A point to remember is that a scaffold is important in the early stages of a building. Likewise the activities mentioned are very crucial which if ignored, the relationship would do what would happen to a building with no scaffold….tumble to the ground and in the event hurt the parties involved.

Well, I hope that gives you a reason to ponder on where you are like I did and still do.

Have a good night reader and do leave your thoughts however cynical you may be!
