Midnight Thoughts

   Only to be with the man.   In the way a lion exudes its strength, True love is heard as a stronger voice.    We create dreams to build a stronger fortress, We build on a hope that only time and distance can put to the test.   Time, a place in trying to understand eternity, A belief in hope that time will deliver on promises made. Yet we place our hopes and dreams for what we need in it. Time is just a temporal location.   Thoughts become the central point to keep control. What it should be and what it can be, A power is given to belief. A power that strengthens or a power that weakens, it is a choice.   As loud as the clicks, whistles, and pulsed calls of whales can be heard, the heart calls louder for him to hear, the spirit longs to draw him closer.   One can only pray he has heard the call, And this to hold till the time we are together.   Soon it shall be told of two hearts becoming one.     It shall be that love will fin

A test and a challenge for love.

 For the first time in my life I believe I have found someone to love me, someone who has given me the courage to stand up for who I am and has shown me the independence I have as an individual, the strength I possess to realise I am deserving of love. I believe I have found someone who makes me feel strong enough to stand up and accept who I am, not only to myself but also to affirm to those around me that what seemed impossible or unimaginable has happened to me. I can finally stand tall and shout it aloud that someone out there loves me in just the way I love him. It is amazing as it is wonderful. I must admit that even though I have great flaws, this man in my life holds my hand and lets me know I am only human and that I learn and grow through my mistakes, I’m not perfect. It is beyond our control that for now, we have a geographical distance between us, daily we can only through modern communications reassure each other of this love we share, despite the challenges we k

When Corona visits so close to home.

World over we have been bombarded with the news of the novel coronavirus disease known as the covid19. An infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus spread from person to person. Covid-19 symptoms can range from mild (or no symptoms) to severe illness. The virus has sparked global anxiety and concern and has plunged the world into a pandemic and should you be reading this right now and are in good health, consider yourself blessed by God. Please do your best to keep it so. I have noticed that unlike any other virus we have come to know, this COVID-19 from time of infection can in a short period of time easily cause death regardless of health status. We must not live in fear, but it is paramount that for now, our survival depends on following set guidelines from renowned scientists and the World Health Organization (W.H.O) to keep extra hygiene, maintain social distancing, and avoid personal contact as best we can, also when in public spaces to wear a face mask

Inspiration for the need to write. For the first time in a while, maybe in as much as seven months. Yesterday I got to be out of the city in a place about 15Km out of town on a small-holding farm. The only reason for my presence in those semi-wild environs was assisting a colleague, Uber driver equivalent just helping to get the veterinary man to attend to the livestock. It has been a frantic week at work, working mainly around geriatrics can and will at most times put you on a roller coaster ride. But I do enjoy my work over the years it has opened a wider insight into my understanding and appreciation of history and could probably be the leading reason that sparked my found curiosity and interest especially into human history. On arrival at the farm, I was made to feel at home and free to walk around the area. It was a hot and dry afternoon but that did not stop me from walking around, my focus and curiosity centred around the vegetable garden. For me, this had to be the main

Surviving the growth process.

Everything starts from seed and for the fruit to be enjoyed there is a process that must be initiated and most times the transition is a painful period. A woman cries because of the labour pains and until the birth of her child and once she has delivered the pain and the process is no longer an issue and soon forgotten. If anyone has ever witnessed a butterfly coming out of its cocoon, it a moment where one gets tempted to try and help it come out, but nature is amazing, there has to be a process and most of the time going through such painful significances brings out the beauty of what we know as life. Out of such painful experiences and if we stay strong enough to withstand, we receive much joyful and enjoyable fruit that comes with the whole painful process and that is inexplicable. Challenges in our lives come to strengthen us – I never understood that until having to face and go through the rough, and understand that the desire for the fruit is much greater than

It's still my birthday month. For the first seven days of July, my birthday month, my now fiancé for each day before my birthday published a Blog expressing his love for me and the beauty of love we share, the memories, and the desire for a better future together.

Mary, Mary, quite contrary, How does your garden grow?

I have always had a passion for gardening there is something I always found therapeutic in watching nature flourish. From seed or seedling watching the beauty of nature slowly develop and take shape into a magnificent fruit, flower, or vegetable gives me a sense of pride that I had a part to play in its development. When a seed is planted into the ground, I can always almost envision its beauty and bountiful fruit in its expected time. I always do the best I can to make sure the right amount of water, sunlight, or nourishment when needed is administered. When it comes to flower plants, I adore roses. I have had some different types of rose plants I have tried so hard to maintain, as they can be an extremely difficult plant to manage, I am still yet to fully understand the complexity and the challenges involved, I’ve in past times taken up some good advice from those gone before me, I’ve provided all that might seem necessary for a positive and good result but always end up
