  • 2019 started mild and bright in this SE corner of the UK. It was nice to see some mushrooms that had come up on the verge since the dog walk yesterday. And then home for some bacon and eggs.

    If you got this far, I want to tell you a few things. I mostly don't like January, especially the first week. For reasons. I don't do new year resolutions either. I get the idea of wanting to set goals or make a positive change but why wait until a specific date. I think the gym/diet/self-improvement industries like to perpetuate the idea as part of their business model. #cynic
    Which kind of makes the next thing a little awkward.
    I'm going to take a break. A break from as much digital input, specifically, but not exclusively, social media. This is something I've been thinking about for a while but something someone said on new year's eve hit a nerve.
    I did think of temporarily disabling all of my social media accounts but I've read some articles which suggest that can lead to a deleted account fairly quickly and that's not something I want right now.
    So here's what I'm going to do. I've already deleted Twitter and Facebook from my phone. Immediately after posting this I'm going to stop comments on this post and then I'm deleting the app from my phone. The only account I'm going to keep going on a day to day basis is Facebook. But, and this is a big but that I've been mulling over for a while, I'm going to unfriend everyone other than family and a few old school friends and leave all groups and unlike all pages. This isn't something I'm doing lightly, and I'm certainly not intending to upset anyone, although I worry that it might. It's the right thing for me to do at this time. I would hope that any real friends will understand this and let me refriend when I come back.
    I don't know how long I'll be gone. Maybe a week, or a month, maybe longer. I really don't know.
    And just to set it straight. I have appreciated every interaction, chat and comment.
    How will I use the time I gain? Family, learning, making, maybe writing and, of course, taking photographs. TTFN.

  • 잘 모르겠다고 말하는 당신의 머리를 쓰다듬는다 잘 모르는것이 많아서 자꾸 질문하는 나를 쓰다듬는다 찰랑이는 그릇을 탓하지 않는다 찰랑찰랑 그 소리에 즐겁다 한방울씩 더해지는 물방울이 귀하고 넘치면 또 어디론가 흘러가겠지 당신의 곁이라도 적시어 주겠지 고요하게 없었던 일처럼

  • I cried yesterday and then again early today watching video of my A1 compete in her inaugural pageant last night. It wasn’t just the beauty, although the formal walk was as eloquent/ poised as I’ve ever seen her. It was hearing the accolades, accomplishments, and the aspiring vision she has for her life🙏🏾This child WORKS her tail off to maintain Top 5% status. She has responsibilities on and off campus. We encourage her to take self care days just to be a college kid... and she does then it’s back to the grind. I admire her much💙💙💙She is the 2019-2020 Miss Phi Beta Sigma. This mama’s been on a cloud all day...and her dad too! He said,” she is amazing”❣️

  • On Sunday I got to witness my childhood friend from next door finally get married 😊
    They were so sem (shy) that they hardly smiled 😅 (it is not typically in the islanders' nature to enjoy being in the spotlight).
    Nervous vows, important advice from the Talatalas for his new journey as a young Reverend, well wishes, tears of pride and sorrow from his Aunties and then the wartabar (gift giving) and sharing of food in the pouring rain ☔ (blessings from the heavens is what Mum called it)
    Congratulations Mamu and Deli! It was a beautiful, humbling and emotional wedding.
    We wish you both all the best in your future together 💕

  • Celebrate with your special someone at our Valentine Couples Night.
    While each person will paint on a 12x16 canvas a half heart shape. When you put the two together, they make a whole heart.

    This fun-filled, relaxing evening of finger painting with your better half is just the thing you need this Valentines Day. While you are painting you can enjoy complimentary chocolate covered strawberries and champagne (1 glass per person - to consume alcohol, you must be 21 years of age or over.) Register today online at www.chromavino.com/classes

    We'll see you there!
