A Writer’s lover…

Listening to Neil Gaiman on Tim Ferriss’s podcast “The Interview I’ve waited for…” was quite a joy. My favourite over used adjective word came to mind, it was “inspiring” but no that was not the word to use here. There was a sanguinity to his tone of voice, something decadent about the way he spoke, …

For a moment

For a moment intuition kicked in, the reality I will never be a part of your blood, life or family for a moment I’m not a part of your life, your circle, your photos for this moment I do not exist I am, I was and still a memory, a shell of existence for a …

Mia’s Fears

Coach asked me today why I was holding back, what is it I feared? “Losing. It’s simple I don’t wanna lose. Why would  I train this hard and for so long if all I’m gonna do is lose”.  Stupid question, he must’ve seen the thoughts cross my face cos then he said  “Mia, don’t be …

Daddy dearest…

There are some days where as a stubborn person in life means you do not learn anything but your own opinions and hear the sound of your own voice. Then there are times where you realise how much you learn from listening to yourself and the experiences you’ve had. But no matter how hard I …

Half full, half empty

Hand on heart, no words escape my lips, the truth of a past I cannot relive. Moments lost, memories gained an injustice to the memories unnamed. Where are you now? Who, what, how did I get here, I know not this time this place, this home, my space. Cloudy, unrecognisable since you’ve left the hole in …

In the grand scheme of things…

Well, the last 12 months has been an eye opener of familial life, career, bullying, patterns of life, responsibilities and all the past memories or experiences I have gone through and still go through. There are some memories I cannot wipe away but manage them on a day to day, month to month basis. Some …

A Moment’s Meeting

A little epiphany from my night out yesterday with a few amusing moments to share with you. This isn’t a rant but a mere reflection of my emotions and thoughts from reading the media coverage on Sarah Bland and how angry and disappointed I felt. Sometimes, we don’t reflect on our own experiences in the …
