It’s amazing when you find parallels like these. . .
Two people in history with the freedom to do everything else, save for one thing. Then one day, It comes too close. .
Due to some recent happenings, I sat with myself and thought and thought . . . Fortunately, some inspiration drove by. It was in the form of some coooool site. But wait before we get there. . .
Am strongly convicted that:
The important thing is not merely attendance of more church services or any more motivational forums, but acting upon what you hear.
When you find that one thing you’re gifted at, and give it your best, sonny the world is yours.
That said, here’s the site that colors your office with strokes of possibility, in form of cool office art >>> gapingvoid.com. It’s where I nicked this images from. Lot’s of truth here.
Yesterday Myles and Ruth Munroe passed on. It’s sobering to see such stars take a bow. Life is short. In the evening of mine, I hope I can be as confident as Myles was in his last interviews here in Kenya, when he said. . .
Rest well Myles, touched my life.
Tackling any challenge in our lives, begins by thinking about it. You must deeply think about it. And then after you have thought about it, you must plan in detail, and plan in a participatory manner consulting all stakeholders. And when the decision is made to implement, implement it so strictly with very clear timeline without wavering, without any interruption until the project is delivered.
President Mwai Kibaki, Republic of Kenya
Live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about his religion. Respect others in their views and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life. Beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and of service to your people. When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.
[LT Rorke’s last letter to his son]
From the Movie: Act of Valor
Nash: I find you attractive. Your aggressive moves toward me… indicate that you feel the same way. But still, ritual requires that we continue with a number of platonic activities… before we have sex. I am proceeding with these activities, but in point of actual fact, all I really want to do is have intercourse with you as soon as possible.
Movie: A beautiful mind
As a class, you and I and our friends who comprise the elite are incredibly blind. We refuse to see what we do not want to see. That is why we have not brought about the changes which our society must undergo or be written off. We have no option really; if we do not move, we shall be moved.
The masses whose name we take in vain are not amused; they do not enjoy their punishment and poverty. We say thoughtlessly that politics is a game of numbers. So it is. The masses own the nation because they have the numbers. And when they move they will do it knowing that God loves them or He would not have made so many of them.

Chanyado. Shade. Respite from the sun. A place under the tree to rest my head, and wiggle my toes out in the sun.
