Are we really? I'm guessing you see that and there is someone who pops in your mind who just seems to have it all figured out. There is no way they are making it up. Probably bursts holes in your belief of 'my steps have been ordered'. Especially when you can't see the order of … Continue reading We are all making it up as we go along.
I have been round and round the mountain. I've exhausted myself with my pursuits. I chased the light and found a mirage There's no water in these steep ranges. No respite. No hope. No Hope! I've been round and round and round. And some days when I'm not roaming, I wonder if I missed my … Continue reading Starting Over
I came across the poem below from 2019 (unbelievable as it may sound that's all of three years ago). So some context - outside a shared institution, I realised a shift in some friendships. And I started to think about what a friend is, how far you draw in friends, what you say and what … Continue reading We were strangers
I'm here to report some progress on my fantasy reading/watching/search. If you read this post from a few weeks ago, you might know about that. I'll blame that on Flamefall by Rosaria Munda. Need something like that. To take me out of Uganda with its fuel crisis and strange weather for January for just a … Continue reading Still on that search for good fantasy
The promise of January was a lifting of all the lockdown restrictions and I probably looked so much to it, I forgot to think of what that might feel like. Like how I get a little antsy when people get so close without their masks... It's hard to believe that less than three years ago … Continue reading Easing back into some ‘sort of normal’
First Writer’s Wednesday of the year. (And hopefully it will persist with some bi-weekly consistency.) I had the pleasure of listening to some of Elizabeth Gilbert's interviews on writing, and I also read her book 'Big Magic'. I liked her wit, especially in the interviews and perspective on what writing was to her. One thing … Continue reading The best writing advice…
During one of my commutes back home this week, I thought of lost skills. Things you pick up and then let die because you never make the time to practise them. For me, it was my French lessons. There were plans in place to make sure I didn't lose whatever it was but what use … Continue reading Making the time.
Or not if that puts unnecessary pressure on your plans. Somethings will work out, somethings will not - like it happens every year. The ebb and rise of life as it is. But our focus on the new year is Growth And Perspective. At least mine is. That is my theme for the year. I … Continue reading 2022 with some buzz…
The thing with writing, or what I have been led to believe is that whatever time works, works. You are not set to a wound up to go off when the clock strikes. But there should be some writing - because the only way to get better at something (you can say it with me) … Continue reading How to jealously guard your writing time.
Hello there, I hope your December is picking up steam wonderfully. I came across this post and thought I would share this too. I really really like what was written here. Especially as we take inventory of the year. What worked and what failed. And what we imagine the next year should look like. I … Continue reading Untitled🤷 (Repost)
