Just like the astronaut, floated out in space, surrounded by the endless darkness and silence of the cosmos, so was I,  on this fateful day, lost in thoughts, thinking about my life, how I will make mama proud, what have I not done to be successful yet it looks as though life is not fair to me, how will I eventually be a man and a man of my woman’s dream, series of pictures flying through...

Happy Father’s Day!

It was Father’s Day yesterday, and everyone celebrated their dads and brothers, generally; male role models and father figures. The energy was vibrant and celebratory everywhere.
