Life has...

Today I wore a pretty dress, I bought it over a year ago but today I only got the right reason to wear it. I like that... 
Life has a way of making us smile Those happy moments
Life has a way of making us frown Those memories adorned with tears
Life has a way of making us laugh Those round table talks with melting cookies and icecream
Life has a way of making us cry Sadness reminds that many things will pass away
Life has a way of making us jump Keep striving, don't be stagnant 
Life has a way of making us dance Music is food for the soul 
Life has a way of making us sit still Ponder, think, plan execute
Life has a way of making us roll It's ok to feel the weight on your shoulders and just cry
Life has a way of making us run Get set, go...
Life has a way of making us scream Do lose your voice in the process
Life has a way of making us sober Life...it has many sides  tbc

the morning after

it's been 8 years, and we miss my grandfather in our different ways.
What we remember is never to forget...
we remember, July 30

lonely hearts dot com

surround yourself with family and friends
with family and friends who push you,
family and friends who mould you,
family and friends who laugh with you
who want the best for you and from you.
who also can laugh at you because they love you
discipline your mind, fill it with good thoughts
be hopeful and then be happy
happiness is a condition you can be permanently in
push worry out, really why worry?
Love is real, it is in the little things and big things
It is in the planning and talking and making
Don't be lonely, it is also a condition
if no one loves you, find someone to love then, or a cute pet
Don't please don't kill yourself, because...
you will wedge a deep dark hole in someone's heart.

PS: Oh Chester

PS again: I am gradually pushing meat out of my diet and that can be 'one kin' living in Lagos. I made  yam and tofu stir fry. I will work on the recipe further

For Meechy

I am so sad about hearing Meechy Monroe died...I loved her input in the YouTube Natural hair community. When I got to know about her cancer, I would pray for healing. She started getting better and I was glad.  Then suddenly she wasn't getting better again. I didn't stop praying for her healing. I would check her sisters' pages for good news from time to time...
Rest well lady, no more pain Rest well Meechy, you never stopped being beautiful I pray your mom is comforted I pray your dad is strengthened I pray your sisters can push thru the sadness  I pray for your family

we never waved goodbye

saying goodbye is always the hardest
especially if the goodbye is Michael Jackson's 'this is it'
especially when we haven't completed the goodbye stories

Goodbye my lady,
the shy smiles, the funny 'uhs'
the ever ready gift hands
were we ready no
but that is what death does best
snatches a soul, and life never gets to see that body
or hear that laugh...

still here we are
still gone you are
we miss you, FOF
its been  4 years now, 16th May
we still never waved goodbye

those conversations

Ever had a 'crazy' conversation about sex with someone with whom your longest conversation has been 'hi' prior to this said conversation?

Sometimes i have played out my day in my head long before i have had a shower and made it to my workplace... not like i know in detail how it will end... but i have sort of planned it out-ish

I started my day like a new day - nothing unusual, only good vibes welcomed, happiness is the lane i walk on today
I like to say i have a song playing in my head and this morning it was lil mama's Lipgloss
I haven't heard that song in yearsssss, as in Y.E.A.R.S! I probably heard it while Carbon was still a thriving club
Anyhoo song of the morning and i listen as i head to work...
Basically my day was, popping, school girl feel, all the boys keep stopping - until

So this said conversation
- you know when your mind, head and your inner self are not in unison
because your inner self just wants to be carefree, your head well your head is the…

creativity street, a street way better than notting hill gate

I have had a my excited heart burst into a thousand butterflies intermittently this past sunday
Ayodel Arigbabu's Moremi, directed by SegĂșn Adefila is the cause.

A musical well written and well performed in the heart of Lagos.

I luveet when i see or experience the brilliance of people's creativity!!!!

So Ifa has a Facebook account, Esu wears air max and Ogun has 'merchandise' for sale on his website but they still speak in riddles.  A land where the elbow of the Akewe of the Ooni (Ooni=King, i.e. the King's announcer) is at a perfect 45 degree angle when he dabs, and Orunmila's son spits more bars than your current best rapper.

Where do i begin this review and not make it seem like I have been paid to favour this beautiful work of art?
With the little funds they had, they were able to produce beautifully crafted entertainment.

I really hope Moremi is well funded and it goes into one of the really big theatres in Lagos and Ibadan or better still the amphitheatre…
