... and that simple statement is also a metaphor,.. if you think about it awhile.
It was a literal experience for me last night.
It was lovely of one of my brothers to come over to talk, hang out with me..chill, but I hadn't really realized the extent of his insomnia until i noticed it was 2am in the morning, he was oblivious, and I was struggling to stay awake. In the end, we called a cab at something to 5.
That old saying.. you are known by the company you keep is very true.
Whether you realize it or not, for better or worse, you will adopt aspects of each others ways. So.... spend more time with those you genuinely like, and wouldn't mind being like in some way
I'm learning!. my Twi is coming along and so is my Krio.
I got to practice my Krio yesterday with my future mother in law who is lovely, and as she doesn't speak English, I had to speak what Krio i could.
and.... we managed a conversation
yay! that was the best feeling ever.
Never did I think I would utter the words... well done to the Pope!
I do so purely because he said what I felt and said quite recently... that it's 'not okay to mock what another holds dear. ' If you insult my mother' he said.. 'expect to get a punch on the nose!'
Tell them Pontiff tell them
Cultural and religious imperialism.. where will it end?
The arrogance of many is overwhelming
for us all
The past week or two I've been in reflective mode. never did I think I'd utter the words... I'm very grateful to my exes!
they have taught me many valuable lessons.
..and coloured my journey to this point
they have helped me to identify what I want, and what I don't... to be happy with me, the person I am, the person I hope to become
unbeknownst to them....they have taught me to recognize and appreciate true love
and that's a wonderful thing
Nice version of the Marcia Grifiths song Etana
