I hate how lukewarmness feels on me…

Lukewarmness can have various meanings depending on the context. But the word doesn’t usually have positive connotations. For example, most people don’t enjoy a lukewarm shower because the water temperature has to be just right or cold if it’s a hot summer’s day. People don’t enjoy lukewarm food, it either has to be hot or […]

The back to you Revolution

I fondly remember growing up in the township and attending various social gatherings. In these gatherings, our greetings will go along the lines of “Sawubona mtanami/ sis wami, unjan kodwa? Kukuphi ekhaya? Or uZalwa kabani?” Loosely translated this means,“Greetings my child or sister (former used by the elderly and latter by peers) how are you? Where […]

Joie de vivre: Rediscovering and reposit...

I recently read an article that truly changed my life. The most mind and heart-blowing thing the author mentioned was: “You are joy. You are joy itself. Causeless, reasonless, careless joy”.  Three years ago, I would have struggled with this phenomenon – is this person saying that joy is a human state of being? What […]

I think more than anything, what drew me to the poem […]

I AM BECOMING HER…

I remember reading an article by Milisuthando Bongela in the May 2017 issue of Destiny Magazine titled “In Praise of Feminism”.  I admit that just like the author, I once had a misguided understanding of what feminism really is.  Growing up I somehow related feminism with images of male-bashing, angry women who very seldom experienced […]

Continual Responsibility…

Constructive criticism is a great gift, but depending on where you are in your life, it can sometimes come across as a great pain. Recently someone was giving me feedback about something very dear to me. The feedback came packaged with both positive and negative comments. As the dialogue progressed, there was a moment where […]

I love being authentic in my writing so that those who read may be able to relate and we able to dialogue about our very real human experiences. So recently, I was […]

Crossing Over!

The past weekend was probably one of the best weekends of my life. My friends and I were together, in a beautiful upmarket apartment right in the heart of Houghton Estate, Johannesburg South Africa. The apartment embodied class and sophistication at its best. We loved every minute of being there as we laughed, danced, cried, […]

My metamorphosis…

As I write this, I just got off the phone about a very interesting opportunity. The gentleman who called me had seen my CV on a career site on the internet. He shared with me that one of the big research companies are looking for a combination of skills sets for a 3-month project. One […]
