A THOUGHT ON BREAKUP-INDUCED SUICIDE

Gosh! I know I am no relationship coach and frankly, I try to avoid speaking on the subject because I have realized that not too many people share my views on what an ideal relationship should be, and honestly, I’ll be more uncomfortable if they do. Nevertheless, I feel the urge to break the silence and destroy the myth around ... Read More »

7 MONTHS A SLAVE: THE INHUMANITY IN THE STATE OF OSUN

Last year I saw a movie on slavery. It was a remarkable cinematic adaptation of 12 Years A Slave; the 1853 slave narrative memoir by Solomon Northup. Like my experience with every slave trade-oriented literature and artwork I had come across, my heart was gripped with sorrow and anger and resentment. I simply hate and detest slavery on all counts. ... Read More »

TOMORROW IS TODAY

future

Do you remember those days when tomorrow felt so distant? Do you recall those times when the seemingly huge gulf between the present and the future gave us some measure of confidence that we’ve got tomorrow all figured out or at least we will in due season? Well, those days are long gone and even though some of us do not know ... Read More »

Movement, Newness, Spice, Flavor… It’s Your Call. Just Keep It FRESH!

something new

Every morning (or so), I wake up with excitement and the thought of something new. Mind you, these thoughts are not always grandiose and remarkably innovative, or necessarily rule-breaking, but they’re usually something different that works for me. At times, it’s as simple as eating something different or cooking my meals using a different approach or switching my bath sponge ... Read More »

Who needs tradition? Not me!

no-limits1

Rebellious and out of place? Well, meet the emerging me. Honestly, these days, to pick up the pen is to unleash the rebel in me. And believe me, I have tried various- several- different containment strategies but none has worked so far. I’ve tried to train it, tame it, suppress it, choke it, drown it, I even put a lid ...

WHEN PASSION COOKS…

when pass

When passion cooks the entire nation perceives the aroma. Passion, zest, zeal, whatever you choose to call it, is the needed ingredient for the preparation and successful execution of our visions and dreams in life. Any engagement that is short of passion leaves us lethargic, doleful and miserable. I counsel myself everyday never to engage in projects that I am not ... Read More »

GETTING THE RESPECT YOU DESERVE

respect

I hear people say it and frankly, I used to say it too. “People don’t respect me as much as they should”. That was my line, yours may only be similar. Bottom line, we want the same thing; respect. It would be nice to get noticed by people especially those you care about. It would be nice for them to ... Read More »

CONTENT? GREAT. CONTAINER? EVEN BETTER.

Over the years I’ve met quite a number of people. And frankly, a remarkable number of them seemed to be carried away with what they’ve got going-on on their inside that they lose the entire picture of what their outside is supposed to look like. They seemed to be driven by the knowledge of what they carry and their capacity to ... Read More »

When Broken Pieces Fit

Years back, tragedy struck and I lost someone very close to me. I wanted to die. The occurrence wrecked me emotionally and I had no idea how to move on. People came with advice and words of consolation. They all seemed to chorus “It is well” when it was not and nothing they said ‘jelled’. As I advanced from the mourning ... Read More »

You First!

In the quest for better living conditions, we daily mount pressures on statutory bodies, organisations and the government. We make preposterous demands in the name of “making” them responsible. Even the things we should do for ourselves we toss over to them conveniently. Rather than addressing issues and becoming responsible for matters within our reach, we slide it across the table ...
