So this week I a friend of mine, @Shamiso Madzivire wrote a lovely portrait of a lovely couple. Its challenging and inspiring; a bright light of hope in a world where marriage is a chore and a happy marriage is looked upon as a myth. And I just had to feature this post...
And what exactly makes a perfect Valentine's day gift? Is it the price tag written on it that says you are special? And therefore a $300 bouquet of flowers is better than a $30 one? Is it the uniqueness of the gift? Meaning that getting her a tailor made dress is better than the one at Edgars or Woolworths?
But yet, the irony in all of this is to have an amazing marriage, a key cornerstone will be to be good as friends to each other; not just friends but best friends. In the friendzone, this friendship is there; the willingness to accept and love each other unconditionally and the missing part is supposedly "sexual chemistry." Ironically, these besties often do not want to lose their intimate place even when the other finds a good relationship but yet do not want to go out with each other because they are "friends."
I myself remember crying when my Form 4 results were made known to me, and my Shona result was not what I had wanted.

And we all know... Continue Reading →

And the glorious result of it all from my heart refusing to go What if instead of sports in our hearts, it were the women in our lives? That when someone trash-talked them; to their defense...

So today, I am just moved a bit on the inside to talk about connection or intimacy, or depth of friendship-however one would want to think of it. It is something that I am not so skilled at, when it comes to talking about it and I think I could do better when it comes... Continue Reading →
It's holiday season; Christmas in particular and I feel compelled to ask just a few questions; mostly to ask out aloud some questions and realizations that have been working through my mind. I honestly feel different this year, this season compared to any other period like this that I remember. If there ever was a... Continue Reading →

So I wrote this a while back; having listened to a number of amazing teachings on the subject of healing by Curry Blake. However, because it puts a requirement and a demand for a response from me, I kind of shelved away the essence of the message with a perception that what I needed was... Continue Reading →
