S.O.(m).S

Feeling overwhelmed.

Experincing alot of haziness.

Having a pity- party.

Shoulders and neck all wound up. Need a good kneading.

Can't see the trees for the forest, or is it forest for the trees? whatever!.

Is my glass half full or half empty?

How much longer before the light at the end of the tunnel?

The Dawn Of A New Day.

Wow!. Am glowing as I write this . I've just listened to truly the best speech since Barrack Oboma's keynote speech at the democratic convention.

Ladies and Gentleman Her Excellency Ellen Johnson -Sirleaf of Liberia has just done us all proud. She has brought congress to its feet several times. She's as articulate, eloquent and engaging as can be. Please make time to watch the re-run of c-span today or google the speech the house has just ended that session.

I have goose bumps am so proud, of her representation of Liberia, Africa as a whole and indeed of her very essense. As she spoke and the camera was zooming around everyone had a smile on their face and was hanging on to her every word nodding,she had to pause several times due to all the applause.

Am exhilarated, am beaming, at her conclusion I joined congress and gave her a standing ovation as tears of joy clouded my vision. I love that she humbly asked stato to continue supporting her country without being patronizing. "I will succeed,God bless you all" her parting words.

To all the doubting Thomases, yes a woman can. a woman will.

Whispering Inn wewe, see me after class.

Thanks to whispering Inn, today I found myself yes found in an establishment I had no business being in. Come to think of it I don't even kumbuka getting there , thus why I found myself.

Anyway this place had all the aromas that makes one be grateful for having all the five senses intact. I fought with myself to turn and walk away but as if by some alien force I was tranfixed to the spot I was standing. Before I knew it I was sampling mango something other.

I finally took hold of my earthly desires and managed to actually walk out. Somehow though I talked myself into just one scoop and back in I went. Talk about being weak I let dude behind counter talk me into adding fixin's into the one scoop there goes the $5.25 I already didn't have.

Whis's description of the cake he had, had kept playing over and over in my head. I knew I had to run before I spent my week's fare on the slice of raspbery creme cake that had my name written all over it. My mind was willing but my mouth, my mouth wanted to have the same pleasure whis's mouth had experienced.

I looked longingly at the cake on display and yes, you guessed it. Before I knew what was happening I had done an exchange with dude and said piece was in my hand. Did I want to tempt fate and take it home where i'd have had to share? what if it fell? what if i ran into someone who was dying of hunger and I had to share. ?. What if ....all the worst case scenario's went through my mind.

Whis don't ever underestimate the power of suggestion.

Ashindwe!!!!!.

Emily Dickinson's - You Love Me, You Are Sure

You love me -you are sure
I shall not fear mistake
I shall not cheated wake
Some grinning morn
To find the sunrise left
And orchards unbereft
And Dollie- gone
I need not start -you're sure
That night will never be
When frightened, home to thee I run
To find the windows dark
And no more Dollie -mark
Quite none?
Be sure, you're sure -you know
I'll bear it better now,
IF you'll just tell me so,
Than when - alittle dull balm grown
Over this pain of mine
You sting - Again!!
