Hi there, there is a new poll on my sidebar of the blog about what to feature on my blog. I have always wanted to add book quotes since am a book nerd who gets so many inspirational words in between pages and would like to share them on this platform. Also there are these random thoughts that always crop us that i always want feedback from people. So am kinda torn between the 2 or should i just put both of them? Help a sister out. Poll
I don’t know where to start…first of all i related well with the book because the setting is in Kenya…yuhuu and all places, things mentioned i felt like i was walking in the scenes (can we make it a Kenyan movie? Do the ladies who happen to go to club Galileo be bachelorettes- just aking). Secondly, as a bachelorette i could completely capture some of my wants in life (getting a man for a resolution, been miss independent, boss lady) into Shiri who is the diary writer. Thirdly, it is more than a diary *winks (excuse me, the diary kicks off from week1-52, year 2012) Fourthly, no matter how fiction of a book it is, methinks it’s real *smiles. Shiri is a go getter who runs two companies; Golan Technologies-family software company and Kol Yizrael Kenya- a media group from Israel. It is after falling in love with a “priest cum murderer” Fr. Frank that her diary gets better. What she doesn’t know is there is a Jewish secret movement to take over the world and she is at the center of it all (the software she has been developing), thanks to her dad! Betrayal, lies, corruption, blackmail and the urge to reveal the truth glues a reader in this journal to the point one wishes there could be a second one just to find out how Willy- KDF soldier and Shiri’s romance survived and if Frank (who is a CIA by the way) destroyed the movement.
PS: I can’t wait for Elove’s Poetry “Diary of an assassin” coming up on 2019 and you get to read that excerpt at the last pages. For more info on Elove works visit his blog Elove and buy his books of which i got them (paper backs) delivered because my review works are seeing me off as authors approach me to review their books. So in case you see more Kenyan stuff, just know and in case you want a reviewer halla at your girl. (This should become my 4th career, don’t ask what’s the other 3.)
Am still figuring out if i want kids, but if i happen to have them this is not how i want to write my letter to them!
This one actually bored me to death! If you have read “The heart of a woman,” you know what am talking about; felt like a short summary of the book into a letter and something of ‘What I Know For Sure,” from Oprah that got me thinking since Maya mentored Winfrey, who kinda imitated the other on a narration and life lesson at the end of a chapter? This 2 books look familiar. Any who, there are some lessons i would like my daughter to learn from like finding oneself, been a charitable giver, been proud of yourself, telling the truth, having faith, be courageous, be loyal and most of all know that God loves you. Moreover, if you love poetry there are some pieces in there.
What do I think of my country? What is there, which elevates my shoulders and stirs my blood when I hear the words, *insert your country. Do I praise my country enough? Do I laud my fellow citizens enough? What is there about my country that makes me hang my head and avert my eyes when I hear the words *insert your country, and what am I doing about it? Am I relating my disappointment to my leaders and to my fellow citizens, or am I like someone not involved, sitting high and looking low?
PS: Happy Fri-yay…and awesome weekend.
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that,” Martin Luther King Jr.
Violence is happening in many forms in today’s society and most of it is propelled by political instabilities across nations. The high and mighty continue to cause chaos as the poor are victimized. Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh join the long list of migrants who have been forced to abandon their motherlands due to some insane ethnic cleansing. Closer home police brutality continue to take shape as they “control situations.” In a heated election period where we became the first country in Africa to nullify elections we hope for the best.
Crimes of passion have seen jealous lovers kill one another in honor of “till death do us part,”not forgetting terrorist attacks that have wiped off humanity. Forget use of ammunition’s and look at the kind of cruelty we spreading across. Hate speech has mitigated malicious vices where we want to spell doom without getting facts rights. Stigmatization, rape, disparities name them, have seen us cast down on vulnerable people without knowing we cropping up trouble.
As we marked the International Day of Non-Violence on Monday, we all have the obligation to say NO to war and foster peace, love and unity among ourselves. We all have the duty to protect our morals, laws, resources and countries in a mature manner. We all need to be our brothers and sisters keeper to figure out when they change to crude behavior and straighten them before it’s too late. We all need to help nations put their shit together and not desert them in hour of need. We all need to open up our arms to the vulnerable groups and not come up with policies that do not favor them. We all need to say YES to Non-Violence. What are you doing to promote Non-Violence?
“There are many people who feel that it is useless and futile to continue talking about peace and non-violence against a government whose only reply is savage attacks on an unarmed and defenseless people,” Nelson Mandela
