    Up you man

    Yeah! Only through the mind's eye can we see beyond the triffles of mundane realities. And learn to smile in the face of calamity! I am very, very encouraged by your flow of thought! Up you man!


    Hi,
    A friend from fb wrote the above to me after reading one of my poem. What does the italicized part refer to? Thanks

    Re: Up you man

    I have never heard the expression. We sometimes say "Big up to you!" to mean "Congratulations" or similar. Note the correct spelling of "trif​les".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Up you man

    I haven't heard it either. The meaning is clearly to praise you for your writing, but the phrase is new to me.
