Couldn't dignify this with a response! Bitches be locoSo I'm minding my own business when my phone beeps at 11.13 am and I get this creepy message from an unknown number. Never mind that I'd been bored at work and would have welcomed any kind of chat at that time. Truecaller identifies her as Jane. Just Jane. I think back. Do I know any Janes? Well, I knew a few Janes back in High School but it can't be them. Jane, who are you? Who is this person who apparently cares so much for me that they...

I'll say that again, just in case it didn't sink in the first time. GOD WILL NOT TELL YOU WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR LIFE. He will not appear to you in a vision, dressed in white, shining in all his glory, and tell you what to do. Hate to break it to you, but if this is what you're waiting for, you're gonna die waiting. Maybe literally. Now before you go on and persecute me for blasphemy lemme explain myself. I do not claim to have read the whole Bible and I'm far from being a model Christian. But, I...

There are a million things running through my mind at this particular moment. They say life is all about the little things and this is one of my little things. When my mind is a beehive of activities, I start to write and my thoughts come to life. My thoughts begin to crawl and even walk and it's the most beautiful feeling. One Flannery O'Connor said, "I write because I do not know what I think until I read what I say." To this I say, "I can relate." I do hope you have something that makes you...

I see you Tough Girl. I see you working so hard,  being tough,  competitive,  living on the fast lane.  I see you proving that women can be as productive as men,  even better.  I see you at the top,  and you're so lonely honey.  Lost yourself in search of it all. I see you up there,  holding it all inside. Not letting the world see your beautifully tender heart.  I see how much your soul aches. I see beyond the mask you put on every morning,  so the world doesn't see the storm raging inside of...

Apologies as this may be disturbing. at least I thought it was!So, as people ponder over the Kanyari saga and how he fooled thousands of people, I am faced with a whole other problem. I did not consider myself a naive person till recently. Beginning with the Kanyari fiasco, which shocked me into oblivion and on to many other horrifying stories about the human race. If this is what growing up entails, then I never want to. You've heard the phrase 'one thing led to another'? Well, it is through...

I was fortunate to come across a TED Talk by Elizabeth Gilbert where she discusses the crisis of the creative process. Many creative persons are faced with the fear that they only have one good thing in them and that they may be unable to follow-up previous successes. Gilbert offers a way out of this mundane way of thinking. She suggests that we should not think of the genius as coming from inside of us. Rather, we should look at inspiration as coming from a greater power, God, if you may. And...
