TAINTED

He sat huddled in the shower tray rocking himself back and forth as water fell on him, mingling with the tears that streamed down his face. He couldn’t remember how long he had been sitting there as he realised that the water had turned cold as he gingerly made to stand up. He winced as he applied pressure on his left ankle; he made a mental note to have it checked. He walked past their bedroom into the children’s room where he crawled into the bed and fell asleep. It was the draught that woke him up and forced him to put his pajamas on. He was amazed he had fallen asleep. He checked his phone; 115 missed calls. He put the phone back in the drawer and pulled out a second one. “Hello?” “Are you okay? The kids have been worried; not...

THE UNPRECEDENTED WOMEN’S ‘PUSSYHAT’ MARCH.

  To be honest I was a bit confused as to why there was a Women’s March in not just USA but Australia, UK, Germany, Japan, France and even Kenya with numbers that quadrupled expectations. Going through the fog of the reasons it boiled down to mainly the perception that the Trump administration was going to: – To take away the right to their bodies and reproductive rights aka right to abortion and tax payers paying for it, -To take away the right to be homosexuals with all the natural rights of heterosexuals and some, -entrench misogyny and then; – the more serious issues of registering Muslims and deporting illegal immigrants, attack against Blacks and all the other issues. It was refreshing to see “Material Girl” Madonna all...

DONALD TRUMP.

The win of Donald Trump that stunned the entire world whether you believed he would win or not held true to one thing; there will always be at least two competing/conflicting interests and once the controlling side feels it is losing out to either a bad choice or the oppressed, there is bound to be a resistance, a refusal for the status quo to change. Americans rioting because of their President-elect is funny to say the least; given that they have been by and large the yardstick of Democracy. This is not the first time that Americans have taken to the streets to throw a tantrum-dividends of freedom, no doubt and good on them. I guess some aspects of that didn’t sit well with the anti-Trump rioters but does that change the fact that he is what he is? I guess...

RESOLUTIONS: “what does the sum total of your life represent?” (quote from Bridge over the River Kwai)

  There was a time, I would bring out a pad and write my ‘new year’s resolution’ with much determination. By 14th of January, I would settled back comfortably into the normal me. Over the years, the ‘return’ days reduced. By the time I got to where I was ‘me’ by 4th January, I decided there was no point in making resolutions-I was still going to get me! Experiences, time and reality does that to you. Instead I decided to start living. A resolution is meant to be a firm and determined decision to do or not to dos something. With that in mind, my resolutions can be to buy more shoes, go to the cinema more, go to church on days other than Tuesday, eat cake once a week stuff like that. See those are achievable without...

2016: WHAT I LEARNT

1. I’m not there yet. 2. Time to start another journey in my life. 3. The best feeling is when random people acknowledge that you made a difference in your life and come forward to tell you. It makes you want to do more. It is rarely from those around you. Too often we take and are taken for granted. 4. Once again; life is fair and life is not fair. 5. To take my lot with grace and stop the “what ifs?” That’s not my situation so why am I losing sleep?? I’m embracing all the opportunities, luck and favour that comes my way. No second guessing! 6. God will use whoever He wants to in your life. But so will the Devil. The trick is to know how to discern one from the other. Even when you discern wrongly..learn from it. 7. Not everyone will...

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS NOT THE TURKEY BONES!

Giving thanks like forgiveness has turned out to be a difficult act for majority of us. It irks me especially when kids receive things and without a thought run off, sulk or just continue life without a “thank you”. If we can’t teach these kids at this young malleable age the need to express thanks and gratitude for things received, how will we get them to understand that even in times of lack and hardship they should be grateful and thankful?? Thanksgiving, giving thanks and gratitude are building blocks of character development, so the sooner the better. Grateful people are generous people and they are the most beautiful people because they radiate from the inside out. As with forgiveness, any benefit that comes out of the expression is really...
