Who is She?

She writes from within and places it on paper. Her diary is full of journals. Greatness and darkness create brilliance at its finest. Out of the blank white screen that stares back at her, she brings to life her vivid creations and imaginations. They are protected her angels from all the four cardinal points. Her…

Nairobi’s Traffic

Nairobi traffic jam is too slow today. But that is the least of Neville’s worries. His work contract elapses in a month and a half. He is behind on schedule on his car payments. Three days ago the bank sent him an email. Again: “How would he survive?” Neville revs up his Subaru. Traffic is…

If There Was Floods,

HIM I was distracted and in traffic when I heard that there were heavy rains throughout the country. To be honest I never really felt it when it happened across the various parts of the country. But it got me thinking to some sort. A lot of queries actually, “were you out having a pint?…

Belle 3 – Never Enough.

Previously on: Belle-2-The-Reception Fraser Suites, Leventis Close, Central Business District, Abuja. 2030 Hours. I have been pacing back and forth in the sitting area for a couple of minutes. I’m supposed to be relaxed but I’m not. I have Rosemary’s business card on my hand, wondering whether I should call or not. The room I…

Belle 2 – The Reception

Previously on: Belle Cunningham Marquee, Garki Area 8, Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. The reception hall in Cunningham Marquee is stunning, it is among the premier party venues. It is among the top three beloved wedding venues in Abuja. The banquet style tables in the large establishment could accommodate just about 1500 people . I appreciated…

Belle.

Ifesinachi Transport Booking Office, Jabi Central Bus Station, Phase 2, Abuja. June 18th 2012, 2130 hours. It was a chilly Monday evening. I had arrived earlier than the stipulated time. I was standing outside the passengers lounge as I waited for my bus to arrive. My bus was scheduled to leave at about 2230 hours….

Paradox.

“Can an omnipotent being create a stone so heavy that even he cannot lift it?” These are the types of thoughts you have in your head when you want to escape reality. Your phone rings. It’s your wife calling. She lives back in the village with your three children and your mother. It’s the sixth…

Plane Gazing.

When you talk about laughter, hers floats across the space like a genie from a lamp. It’s sensational and a bit tingling. And as always I would always recognize that laughter from anywhere. Even if there is a vast multitude of people I would still figure it out. It came from the stomach. One that…

Svala.

I have never been a fan of Biblical names. Nope. Not at all. They leave one with a certain heaviness rolling from the tongue. For instance the name Rehoboam or Jehozika. Some names are cool, others are not. I created Svala yesterday. A few minutes before midnight. When I was deep in some sort of…

November

Hey, It has been a while. I know it’s a bit lame if I said I had been thinking about you lately. But I would be lying to myself if I said I did not. Of course I do not want to look absurd by blowing up your phone with endless calls and texts. Nope….
