The Nude

It’s not often I surprise myself but today I managed to do it. I had a thought to model for a photo, not just any you see, an actual nude. Yes, just like the day I made my debut into the world. Just like those models that pose for artists when learning the human form. No I’m not nuts, off …

The Blessing and Curse of Social Media

Let’s agree that social media has its advantages and disadvantages, just like everything in life I might add. As in all things, hopefully the ups far outweigh the downs. Again like we all know human beings ought to be rational but this is not always so and as a result some things, possessions, relationships et al apparently flout this rule. …

A Fresh Start

I’ve been on a sabbatical (of sorts) and this involved thinking, listening and a whole lot of not writing. That last part was not supposed to be in the mix i.e. the not writing part but it happened and now I’m back. I needed to take a step back and consider a few things, one of which was the frequency …

Kekes, Astro Turf and Public Transportation

On Wednesday night I had the worst ride ever in a keke! This took some doing since there have been instances squashed between bigger fellow passengers, as well as the ripe odour from others come to mind. The journey was silent and punctuated with intermittent jerks and an engine that threatened to stall every other minute. The jerking was awful …

Sirens: Nuisance, Notice or Nothing

Sometime last year I was in the unenviable position where I was able to make this short video. To say I was frustrated and my nerves totally frayed by the time the bullion van left my side would be putting it mildly. This occurred in the Mile Two axis and for those that know, when go-slow jam you for that …

The Churning

Since the first post in January I’ve not shared anything and like I know and was reminded again on Sunday…consistency is important and fresh stories better than old. The only explanation I can offer is that so much has happened since the first day of the year and I’m still amazed it’s only February and not September. With everything that …

2016

Happy New Year! May 2016 be all you desire and so much more too. Like I do every 31st of December I spent the dying moments of 2015 giving thanks, taking stock, praying and listening to wisdom that will tide me over in the New Year. Yes, I was in church (don’t judge me but go ahead if you want …

My Adventures in Geekland

Alice fell down the rabbit hole and found herself in Wonderland. I had a similar experience last week. For three whole days I found myself amongst geeks. Unlike Alice though it wasn’t accidental and I went in with my eyes wide open (registered more like). An opportunity to rub shoulders with people and things I’d only read about, so of …

The day I used the Gents

Profuse apologies for not publishing last week! I was caught up in the Social Media week that took place in Africa for the very first time. It was hosted in Lagos with so many amazing seminars, topics and people to meet. It was a great time of learning and connecting. It was also pretty hectic and I ended up not …

Election Day

With bated breath we await the outcome of the American 2012 vote. Will it be Mitt Romney or Barrack Obama gets another term? This is the primary question the votes will answer. Here in Nigeria, we’ve participated avidly by watching the live presidential debates, campaigns and the entire electoral process in the United States. I dare say some of us …
