Open Diary.

1. A Little Crush. Whenever I’ve got a crush I warn my heart not to embarrass me.  I tell the silly organ to play nice and sit still. But the damn thing jumps, leaps, runs, cries, hums.  It has the audacity to spread its frivolity to my stomach;  Now I have butterflies everywhere.  I’ve tried to ignore it, but the heart wants what it wants. -Amba    2. Illusion. What if this was all a bad dream; What if we were […]

Parents Are Not Their Children.

I just finished a recommended book by Susan Francis Klebold: A Mother’s Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy. It’s not an easy-breezy fun read; it is heavy and it exposes so many emotions about certain behaviors that are hidden in plain sight. It took days to read the book but the lessons will stay with me for a long time as I now see certain aspects of life through a different lens. There are certain nightmares schools, parents, children, […]

Love Language.

Um, let’s see… I am like Ariana Grande when I see someone I fancy. I see him, I like him, I want him. It is getting him that becomes a hassle. I mean, I’ll slide in his DM or Facebook messenger, or stalk him, send a smoke signal, a prayer, camp where he lives till he takes notice. But so far, ko ṣiṣẹ. If you have passed the camping stage & you’re going steady with your partner, or if you […]

My Favorite Worship Songs

Covered (Planetshakers, 2015)| Back in New Orleans, this song used to be a part of our worship in the church I used to attend. It took me a while to learn or better still accept the lyrics of this song and its efficacy in my life. But the ineffable divine influence of God and his continous show of mercy, even when I did not merit it brought me to my knees one Sunday and since then, this song has been […]

Lessons From The Color Purple

These days I hardly pray at all I let the monsters under my bed be they git comfortable they git to know me. I sit with my friends we drink red wine, we puff smoke into the air, we admire the world and the birds chirping on thick magnolias. We know who made it all we talk about him all the time, but we don’t make reverence to him Even when the sun shines and we applaud, the moon smiles […]

My Journey through the cloudy skies.

Enjoy these random pictures from my trips this July. Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world. — Gustave Flaubert Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. — Ralph Waldo Emerson Better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times. —Asian Proverb Travel is never a matter of money but of courage. — Paulo Coelho The most […]

A Day in Wisconsin (where to go and what to do)

If you have a best friend like mine who likes to make sure you experience new things, a road trip will definitely be coming up somewhere in your future. I have taken road trips with my sisters before, but the trip to Wisconsin was one I was looking forward to for a long while. Mainly because I am a huge fan of That 70’s Show and I wanted to explore the areas where the show was filmed. Who remembers the […]

Andrew Igbineweka is changing the Narrative for University students in Nigeria.

Can you tell me about the work you do, Andrew? I am always elated to talk about the work I do. I found out that there is an inherent problem with the education system in Nigeria and how students learn. I have also seen, from having conversations with graduates and undergraduates alike, that we spend four, five, six years learning stuff in school but are either incompetent or lack the confidence to use what we have learned to create real […]

The Truth About Poetry.

As promised, this is the truth about poetry. Poetry is not about the person who inspires the words It’s not about the situation surrounding it It’s about the person who writes it If you have something to say, then it’s about you It’s about the expression of diverse emotions It’s not the exchange of pain for pleasure It’s about feeling the ache and writing it anyway It’s about the freedom It’s about the realization that a single act of putting […]
