Esther showed wisdom in handling matters that could easily go haywire. She exercised her authority without abusing…

Ruth

I wanted to write a tale of a good friend. I know I have a bunch of bffs but today Ruth is the one. Friendship isn’t a transactional or a tit for tat relationship. It’s built with steady trust and love. For me it isn’t something that can’t be bought or sold. Growing up I thought friendship equated to the person that always spent on you, you’re on call with for hours, your turnup partner or the person you call…

Tale of the lazy writer

I absorbed the words and created images from every description I read till they became part of my memory. I loved stories. I could deal with lies if they were interesting enough to listen to. I became engrossed in fiction and…

Thanksgiving

I’ve never been the conventional boring person but recently I’m like how do I put up with my boredom, talk more of the people around me. I am going to write today like this is my diary. I’ve been observing social distancing in the real sense with almost everyone. Most days I’m just confused. What next? And then what? I can hardly think of the next thing to do. My emotions are everywhere causing havoc. I’ve tried registering for a…

Change is coming

Somehow and somewhere in my heart I always prayed for change. It seemed impossible. It felt like we’ve adjusted to the system of corruption and it was working fine for us. I grew up with a system where the masses thanked the kleptomaniac leaders for the crumbs accumulated from the national reserve.The whole system was fucked up. The poor got poorer and the “ogas at the top” knew only one thing: how to keep stealing. Hoodlums were created as a…
