Tea Break

Taking a chance on trying something new, this my first attempt to type directly without a handwritten draft and trying to write something without a topic to begin with and just putting down my thoughts at random.
Lately, It has been difficult to keep thoughts away from the novel Coronavirus the Covid-19, with news reports one after the other doing their best to highlight this pandemic in many ways.
Even with all this reporting going on, I find it surprising how many people out there do not take the time to be curious enough to research for themselves the impact of this pandemic.
I was in a pharmacy today and had to wait a few minutes before I was served, while waiting, I could not help but overhear a conversation between two gentlemen regarding this Covid-19 virus. For a moment it felt like I was back in primary school as these two, seemly grown men, competing on how much more one knew than the other about the virus, they both had best remedy action plans at the ready. It was entertaini…

2020! You're out of kilter!

To all things, change must come.
It feels to this point this year 2020 has been one giant roller coaster ride, and we have found ourselves having to readjust, review, re-evaluate, and trying to revitalize ourselves. Although, sometimes plain old boredom kicks in, but most importantly having to remain and keep calm.
For me, I know the first half of the year is over when every week for the month of May I have to wish on every week at least two sometimes three people a happy birthday, the fun of remembering who’s birthday it is on each day has begun.
This Coronavirus the COVID-19, which has taken over the world in the last few months has really shown the world just how vulnerable we are as human beings.
This virus has also exposed a lot of rotten tomatoes within many government organizations world over and it has been amazing to see the many fumbles but mostly the lack of basic intelligence from some of the world leaders, but history will surely remember them all. In Zimbabwe, for example, Fi…

Unhappy Independence Day Zimbabwe!

Forty Years of Ruin.
Today marks forty years of Zimbabwe’s Independence Day celebrations.
I pay tribute to the struggle for liberation and respect the sacrifices incurred for our independence, but what do we have to show for it, a nation divided within itself, an elite group of self-centred leaders in government and in some business.
What is meant for a time of supposedly joyous celebrations for a nation is a moment met with many different emotions, expressions, and feelings.
Robert Mugabe and his cronies (Zanu PF) took over a nation in 1980, of which it was a country that was the envy of many and the breadbasket within the Southern African region. Robert Mugabe and his government at that time made a promise to uplift the lives of its citizens.
In the early 1980s Robert Mugabe presented himself as a sophisticated, sensible and a well-balanced man when he took over the reins of power.
But it was not long that for most of the population it became clear that it didn’t take much time for a chan…

The making of history

These times to remember
Locusts, Novel Coronavirus – Covid 19, Pandemic, Social distancing, Lockdown, Infections, Deaths, Recoveries, and conspiracy theories. To this point the year 2020 so far would make for a great chapter in the bible. By Gods grace should we survive through this chaos, I believe this season will without a doubt bring out a change in us as humans and our way of life.
Dealing with restricted access to our daily habits and necessities, for many is proving quite the challenge. I will take a wild guess and say for most of us bad habits were the first to became painfully highlighted during these frantic times.
One thing I am certain of, these are moments and markings of great history in the making and of stories we will live to tell, should we be the lucky ones to survive.
Connecting makes a difference
A good friend included me to join in on a group session of a 21-day program of self-awareness and understanding of thought control, today being the 17th day, I have to admit It …

Attention to current affairs

Attention to current affairs
I have always had an interest in following world events through various news reports from around the world. It always felt like checking up on the well-being of the world which gave me a sense of understanding of the many issues that would be revealed, at best an understanding of the events happening around the world.
I was in Cape Town, South Africa, with my partner, Akin Akintayo, who resides in Manchester, United Kingdom. We spent just over a month together during December 2019 through January 2020 and as we are trying to build a solid relationship we have been meeting up in South Africa for most of 2019. it is because of some bureaucracy issues that South Africa has made it the best for our chance of being together.
It was sometime in late December 2019 that a news report broke out that the Chinese authorities treating dozens of cases of pneumonia of an unknown cause that broke out in Wuhan, a city in China. I felt unthreatened at that time as it seemed …

Hello! who are you.?

Hello! who are you.?
It seems this is the first question we ask each other when we meet for the first time and better still should we just feel a spark of interest, we become ignited and open to exploring what might come of the acquaintance.
I have always admired people who can answer this question almost instantaneously and exude so much confidence and a display in brief of their accomplishments with ease.
If you ask me this question be prepared to hear from the onset of how I was born just eleven months after my older sibling, on a birth date of all sevens, in a country with one of the seven natural wonders of the world, a surname with seven letters, and being my father’s seventh child and trust me this list of sevens can go on.
Made of moments and memories. Is this really who I am.
I am eternally grateful to my maternal grandmother for her earnest aid in my early development of life. Considering being of twice and tried failed abortions on me, I guess I just have been that stubborn fro…
