Curve balls in relationships

Curve balls in relationships

I thought I’d heard it all! This lady at the party was loudly bragging about her lover (another woman), because she realized that men weren’t ‘all that’! She claimed to have made the drastic change because women ‘get’ one another, with no explanations. “Women are expressive, not hard, like men. If am emotional, she doesn’t keep harassing me to style up and swallow it. She gets my bad days. She reaches out when am moody”. Clearly, the drink had got the better of her. Not that the ‘highly praised’ companion was any better!!! The room… Continue reading →

*newsflash* Ladies, men are choosy too

*newsflash* Ladies, men are choosy too

Wow…its been a while! I know, I know…no regular ‘work’ or ‘busyness’ excuses, children running riot underfoot, meetings in and out of town. Naah, your life’s too organized to ever really warrant explaining distance, long silences, unrelenting work schedule…right? Well, mine’s been hectic. Real hectic! Had to do my fair share of growing up..uh huh! And I found out that this multi-tasking thing, can sometimes take the FUN and excitement out of life. Juggling many balls can have a downside too. And more so for the organized, choleric types like myself. We don’t know how… Continue reading →

Men…women…rights and personal space

Men…women…rights and personal space

So…as Kenyans come to terms with women carrying on and marrying multiple husbands, the rest of us face each day with consistent energy and pace. Yes, it makes for an amusing piece of news…but imagine how that conversation went. Living with one and spending a number of decades trying to get the grasp of how his world spins, you can imagine how I marvelled at how these 2 women can keep a number of men pleased and content…those secrets would make many a bestseller. What makes a lady take on multiple lovers? How about those… Continue reading →

Overload!

Overload!

This first half of 2013 has had the most unprecedented events of any year I’ve witnessed…It seems everything has picked up an intensity all of its own. There are more suicides, bomb/grenade attacks, road accidents, striking workers, teen truancy, kidnappings, untimely deaths (mostly cancer related) – not to mention, the expectations of a nation that’s just come through a tumultuous election period. The soul can grow weary just from the constant bombardment. Emotional overload. One wants a break…so I go away..in my mind’s eye, even as I anticipate the actual physical ramifications of a tired,… Continue reading →

Life…and our reasons

Life…and our reasons

So I am musing about the reason for existence….and why we go all out to do the things we do. Is it for fame, fortune, friends, family? So, after you’ve accomplished all your goals and scaled all your mountains, what was the meaning of it all? I look at the little girls laughing, squealing as they chase each other around the compound. I follow the steps of a loving couple hand in hand, going for a stroll…I look into the sky, and let the wind fan my face, as I hear a swallow tweet swiftly… Continue reading →

New breed of fathers

New breed of fathers

The atmosphere seems to be carrying some heavy expectancy…rushed…frantic. I don’t know what it is about this last quarter of the year (October to December) but it bears its own signature of the entire year. There’s a transition of sorts for someone (family friend) who has been in a stable relationship for the past 5 years. No children came of their union (which he deeply regrets). His wife is also handicapped but couldn’t see what she had to offer him after they discovered her uterus was damaged. He holds his chin in his hands as… Continue reading →

Crossroads in my career path

Crossroads in my career path

Going into business is sometimes a daunting project, even at the best of times. You are leaving all that’s familiar…and laid back – the monthly pay check, hours spent making decisions (whose overall effect seemed like somebody else’s business and not yours, in case of any losses), stopping in on friends for that Marketing pitch, lazy Fridays where some take off early from work under the guise of out-of-office business deals etc. Safe… that’s what employment was always about. A safety net…this new frontier called ‘CEO/Boss’ is now unfamiliar territory. There’s business lingo that comes… Continue reading →

Of Wedding Proposals

Of Wedding Proposals

I recently watched a Wedding proposal on YouTube that took my breath away, simply for the sheer creativity… this guy decides to actually hire a movie theatre hall to air the ‘movie’ (home-made of course) that he’s shot, proposing to his girlfriend. The thing is, she is actually been taken to that precise movie theatre to watch…a regular movie. Clueless…. So we move into  close up of her face lighting up in expectation as the movie begins..It breaks off to a scene of two men chatting but all you see are their mid sections with a back and… Continue reading →

Our Menfolk are under attack!!!

Our Menfolk are under attack!!!

It’s horrifying how families are under attack… daily!! Its now out there for all to partake of… The headlines scream of yet another brutal battering…and this time, neither the high and mighty nor the lowly are spared. The base actions of anger expressed are well evident; high level delegate batters wife, man kills family then strangles himself, man takes poison after domestic quarrel. Yes, admittedly, some of these men simply have undealt with issues that are no excuse for meting punishment on a lady who just didn’t see where he was coming from. But, at the risk… Continue reading →

Simply Flourish: The Uniqueness of a Woman

Simply Flourish: The Uniqueness of a Woman

You are unique – your affections, tastes, appetites, execution style etc. God built you with love and with particular care. You are delicate, sensitive, absorbent. You are spirit, soul and body. You are a receptor – very open to external stimuli; a flower (sensitive intuitive expressive reflective) therefore guard your space and environments very carefully and diligently (constantly watchful) You are a “wombed” man (emotional, physical, spiritual wombs). Each of these brings forth life/fruit. Your design is in-born : you have a unique ‘circuitry’ to women – progesterone and oestrogen, minimal body hair, softer voice,… Continue reading →
