    Greetings For the first time, in as long as I can remember, January 1st was not spent scribbling plans in a notebook. Up till about three years ago, I would also spend time on the 1st unfollowing everyone on Twitter and, for the first quarter of the year, I would follow people on the basis of their timelines and whether this appealed to me. I don’t do this anymore because, […]

    Greetings Yeah, I know. I am starting to sound like a broken record. One day, I will be consistent with this. The last few months have a little busy, in a good way. Working for myself means that, traditionally, work ebbs and flows. And, I decided to pursue what I consider one of the most inefficient ways of making a living – writing. More hours spent does not equate to […]

    Greetings, Here are my seven random things. Growing older in a world that seems to place greater value on the young is an interesting thing. I turned 50 this year and while it isn’t old – although my children think otherwise – I do feel as if I have entered a different phase. A phase where I don’t feel the need to be plugged into everything. A phase where it […]

    Greetings, Here are seven things I thought were worth sharing. In my book, Listen To Your Footsteps, I have an essay titled For The Love Of Music. Randomly going through my archive, I found the first draft of it. I didn’t change much when editing but it was interesting looking back at how I first articulated my relationship with music compared to the final version. I have shared that first […]

    Greetings, I get these moments where I am thinking about so many things, it is difficult to streamline those thoughts into something coherent. Plus, over the last few weeks, i have been going through my Twitter archive (I joined in 2008) looking for inspiration for blog topics, since I am, once again, trying to get back into writing for my site regularly. And then I end up with periods where […]

    Greetings, Seven things I thought are worth sharing: How Did James Baldwin Become A 21st Century Influencer? Interesting piece on how James Baldwin “reduces nicely to Twitter, which may seem surprising for a writer of novels and long essays, but he had a knack for language that was well suited to oratory (which may be another reason why he’s so captivating as a speaker), and Twitter, while a silent medium […]

    Greetings, This newsletter was born out of a habit. I believe in being forever curious and so I spend varying amounts of time exploring the Internet, books, practices, etc. I subscribe to (and occasionally unsubscribe from) a bunch of newsletters, which is where I find the things I share.

    Greetings, The last couple of weeks have been a blur with the challenges of being a one-person operation really coming to the fore. Took my first international trip last week for workshop with Gavi, The Alliance in Switzerland. I have been working with them since early 2021 sourcing, editing and submitting writing, initially, from across the African continent, and now also Asia.
