Half way into the night after about six bottles of beer, Zinny soon became tipsy. She was a different person now, she had really changed since last month.

Mimi! Mimi! did you hear a word of what I said?

I was lost in thought.

I responded with a big grin plastered across my tired and tipsy face.’What did you say?’

‘I want to be celibate’ She said. I quickly responded, that is only meant for Priests.

Please, does anyone know of some reasons why someone other than a Priest will embark on this Journey.

Do not sit with your heads on your hands,

Do not lie tossing and rumpling the sheets,

Do not walk on the streets like a confused person,

Stop biting your nails while waiting for the bus or train,

Stop walking around in circles because your loved ones are already afraid for your life,

Stop chasing your dreams to the end of the earth.


Get hold of it – dreams, writing, worries, activities. Anything that makes you restless and try making it a reality.

There is no harm in trying.



My name is Sandra and My memories will be told in bullet points to represent every significant point in my life in the individual years up to my 30th birthday. I may not have achieved much, but the activities, events and other things that happened in my life has made me who I am today.

  2. When I was 2 years old, My father lost his job and life became unbearable. He became so angry with mum and I. Fortunately, Mum got a job in the local hospital and my family became the happy family once again. Continue reading MEMORIES OF A 30 YEARS OLD WOMAN

The sun was radiant, all-watching eye, its light creeping into every corner, bathing the whole world in a warm glow.

The mini van cruised down a twisting road, grassy, forest green hills looming over the mountainous drive. An endless expanse of turquoise wonder, shimmering a liquid gold, stretched towards the distant horizon. The grasses looked like yarn weaved carpets and the birds hopping from tree to tree chanting in  the distance. The countryside view of Velbert in Germany was breathtaking.

WAGON WRAP 5We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.
― Kurt Vonnegut

The orderly rolled my gurney to a stop before an imposing double doorway. “Okay,” he said, “This is where you get your kiss.” I couldn’t tell if he was speaking to me or to my wife.  In any case, my wife kissed me and laughed and cried all at once. Then I was rolling again.

I arrived in surgery and scooted over onto the operating table.  I joked with the anesthesiologist.  He found my vein on the first try.  I recited Psalms to myself and wondered distantly why I wasn’t scared out of my wits.

They sliced me open, broke my sternum, compressed my lungs like empty sugar bags, and stopped my heart to patch the hole between its upper chambers with a piece of my pericardium while redirecting…
