My story

This is the book of my life.

All my tragedies and comedies are here vying with each other for a prominent place.

The way I look at things is that no life is complete without one or the other.

Our circumstances mold our character and hence our lives into what they are meant to be.

The cover on this book bears my name but on the back page are the names of generations of people from whom I came, people whose names even I don’t know myself but who have left bits of their DNA in my physical form.

My spiritual self has remnants of the thoughts of my father and forefathers, my mother and her mother, I am the latest in the series of their spiritual evolution.

  1. Amazing. Our ancestors formed part of who we are today. They fought for our human and family races to thrive through hardship and live in the next generations. As Maya Angelou would say, they were rainbows in our clouds. 👏


      1. That’s a clever one, Sadje. Could I order a special blank one with my name on for my next notebook? I’ve just filled up the final page of my current one and am back to scribbling on random bit of paper!
