Putting your thought into black and white may be daunting and challenging but every step you take is getting you nearer home to all round rest.
“You are only free when you belong no place-You belong every place-no place at all. The price is high. The reward is great.” Maya Angelou.
How many more can be said about our nature of imperfection where we strive all the while and yet it seems as if that is never good enough?
Life is like a ball that keep rolling just as the globe is. It’s the side that is exposed to you that you see very clearly and with clarity of mind must be your response to what’s thrown at you.
Typical scenerio where some are in darkness and others in light. But whatever the part we see, it’s temporal continual. Life is a cirlce and must be lived to the fullest. So brace up and be prepared to see all the sides that there is.

This stand for peace and unity.
The Nigeria Coat of Arm is wounded.
The two horses stand for strength.
The eagle at the top that stand for wisdom is no where to be found.
“Alagbara ma meroo, ni baba ole”. The Yoruba adage means strength without wisdom is nothing.
The land is troubled and the insentivity of the leadership has really exposed how unprepared we are as a people. Leader handpick their successor to cover their dirty track. This always many time bring up leaders that are least prepared. How can a student who does not prepare well pass examination with distinction?

It does not matter where you are,
Neither how far away?
Nor your situation.
But one thing is sure,
I am glad when I look
Across the ocean and space.
And my mind locate the smile
On your face.
That despite uneasiness of the world
We live in,
You’re still capable of smile
Deeply and heartfelt.
I am glad deep heartedly.
Is an emission that
Touches my soul.
Am happy for your hapiness,
Am touched for your concern.
But all is well my dear friend.

I had faced this several times over. Sometimes I just don’t know what to pick and where to pick it. But one thing I have learnt is to keep learning from everyone and everything I can lay my hand on. Data I can consume that encourage me or prompt me to move on. This piece am writing is prompted by Michelle W’s post. “Recomended Reading:Bird by Bird” a book written by Ann Lamott.
There is this particular statement about “we need to make messes in order to find out who we are and why we are here”. In relation to being a writer. In further Ann Lamott’s word “writing and reading decreases our sense of isolation. They deepen, widen and expand our sense of life: They feed the soul and restore our largeness”. I intentionally read to learn, study to get knowledge and I can’t but agree totally to the expression above that writing and learning is soul lifting. Whatever the situation one find him/herself. It also support the fact that so many messy situation can be corrected and be put together in the right format. It’s inside the failure that where the success lies, if one can look and act with steadfastness of purpose and the reality that all cannot be lost. Something to hold on to remains.
Whenever you’re stuck, not knowing what to write or write about. If you’re like me who always make notes here and there, go to those materials scathered on your desk and read through all over again. I can assure you, something will come up and you’ll definately get a bearing.
In general life situation,there are times when we feel like we’re being stand still and things are no more working well the way they have been! Lucky you if you are a writer. What you need to do is read, write and visualize your way out of your sorrow or that unwanted situation. That’s the power and beauty of self expression. It’s globally beneficial.
Hear Michelle W. “For me, the beauty in ‘Bird by Bird’ is that it help me feel good again, about choosing to write, about dedicating myself to blogging, about my unique voice, about experimenting and making ”messes” and playing with words and pictures to make stories- simply put “go resourcing”.
A bit on Michelle.
