Radical New Schedule

It’s the end of May (a few days into June, I know) and once again I’ve done what I promised I would not. Sigh! I’ve been writing, in fact I’ve been at it all month but I’ve just not been writing about the usual. I’m guilty…of letting the ‘work of writing’ not let ‘the pleasure of writing’ get a voice. …

Birthdays, Gifts and Social Media

So yesterday was my birthday, there was no cake, but lots of laughter and loved ones were part and parcel of the celebration as much as possible. There was also a dress, Chinese food, some James Bond kinda manoeuvres (don’t ask), Hugh Jackman (one of my all time crushes), conversations and a humungous steak! Yup, you guessed it, it was …

Back in the Saddle

Just like that it’s March. Didn’t we just say happy New Year a couple of days ago? I’m a fine one to talk right? It’s been a pretty long while (since July last year to be precise) since I wrote anything here. What’s my excuse I hear you ask? The usual culprit gets blamed for people not having a life, …

New Neighbours

At one time or the other you might have been the new kid in class, the strange face amongst those clearly acquainted. The gateman might have also asked you the person you’re visiting when you happen to have been in residence for the past two weeks. Or maybe you ran into a few people in the premises and because of …

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. …

What really matters?

Do you ever feel as if you’re disconnected? Not quite there. Making the motions but not quite tethered to the reality of your existence. Sometimes it seems like an ‘out-of-body’ occurrence. You have friends but it seems as if they’re in an alternate universe? Family nko? You don’t see as often as you would like, what with everyone living their …

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 …

Immunity

Going about my life in Gidi town I’ve observed that members of the armed forces, especially the police and soldiers apparently are immune to death! I’ve always wondered at their brazen attitudes when crossing roads (almost casual on expressways and crowded streets) and driving…usually without seatbelts. Today’s column has been long in the making and was further buttressed when I …
