This Post is About: Valentine’s Day

Gather around children, let me tell you a story. Once upon a time, long, long, long ago, there was a scandal. A scandal of epic proportions. Olivia Pope couldn’t handle this scandal. There was a girl named Rhea Silvia who was a virgin priestess in a temple somewhere. Rhea was good at her job, I…

🎶 Rain drop, drop top Sitting here typing on my laptop 🎧 Music is a wonderful thing. I don’t believe there could exist any moment in this life or the next without music. I mean, think about it. The angels are up there in Heaven singing praises to God (in the tune of Hosanna x…

First post in two months! The block is gone! Hallelujah! Ahem. Forgive me for my enthusiasm. It’s just that, my words are back and I’ve never been happier. That’s a lie. I have been happier. I’m a happy person… I think. Anywho, Happy New Year guys! How was your Christmas? I bet some of you…

Dun dun duuun! Blank. Blank. Blank. Blank blank blank blank blank. 🎶 Well, I’ve got a blank space baby…🎼 This is so annoying. Guys, my characters have abandoned me. My words are on vacation. Absent without leave. Come back vocabulary! You can’t leave me like this 😔. What am I supposed to do now? ……

🎶 Lonely…  I am so lonely…  I have nobody … To call my oooooooooooOOOOwn! I am so lonely.   I hate that song. It sounds like an autotuned sack of drowning cats, and who wants to hear cats drown?  (If you do then you are a deeply, deeply disturbed individual) Still, the song is catchy…

This Post is About: Television 

Remember when I told you I had a couple of stories in my draft folder? Well… I was lying. There’s nothing in my drafts but the promise of a cool wind blowing through a dry riverbed. The promise of a cold glass of water after working on a farm in the afternoon. The promise of…

I’m Still Alive

Hi there. I apologize if you have been logging on here but not seeing anything new. Work has been keeping me busy. Also, in all honesty, I’ve been binge-watching Downton Abbey. It’s a really good show. I don’t know why I wasn’t watching it before now. I would do a review but I think it’s…

“I heard Your voice in the garden and I was afraid. And I hid myself” – Adam, Genesis 3:10 I don’t know what’s wrong with me. It’s 1:43 am and I can’t sleep. I lie in bed staring at the ceiling, or more accurately, staring at where the ceiling should be. All I see is…

So I might have been a little too quick to share this post. Don’t blame me. Blame the WordPress App. It’s a weird little software that one. I have a friend. Her name is Grace and she’s a nutritionist. Passionate about health matters. I wish I had that same zeal maybe I wouldn’t have this kitambi…

This Post is About: Fatherhood

I have a friend. A good friend. You know, the kind you copy assignments off of (or the kind that you allow to copy assignments from you). He’s the kind of friend who’ll take you to weird joints for a beer but will make sure you don’t get too drunk. The kind of friend who,…

This Post is About: Rain

“Down from up above it came, the silver drops that fill the pails; Ensuring rivers do not wane, by gentle drizzles or heavy hails; Clearing streets and filling beds, casting shadows on the plain; Some will curse and some will bless, but everyone will feel the rain.” – Me. (I am a poet and I…

This Post is About: Noodles

I saw her in my dream. She was still the doe-eyed beauty that I cherished. Her hair was still perfect, her lips were still supple, her body was still bangin’. She was standing on the sidewalk in the rain, under a black umbrella. She was waiting for a cab. I looked at her from across…
