Let me tell you something about Azure or maybe let’s call him 44.


He says I live life safe. I live by a list of don’ts and not for the sake of curiosity.


We share the full moon, 44 and I.


He lights up his blunt, takes a sip of his drink as I take a sip of my apple juice and stare at the moon. How be...

I come from a country where school is a typical classroom set-up with the teacher and the blackboard at the front and all desks and pupils facing the teacher. So, coming across a book that urges us to redefine, and restructure not just learning but a ...more

An interesting, fast paced read that I promise you will immerse you in a world where hope lies in the fighting spirit of a select few...if not a young girl who knows the value of her life and refuses to be tamed.
Thanks Netgalley for the eARC.

[Roark] “That’s not the point. The point is, who will stop me?”
Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead

“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it's yours.”
Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

Dora Okeyo Thanks for stopping by to check out my blog and am glad you read that piece, because it still beats me just how much donor funding has helped Kenya and Africa as a whole.
