A love allegory (An exposition)


A couple of months ago, I engaged friends on social media in a discussion about love and this is  a compilation of our conversation! Feel free to share your thoughts on this as well. ALLEGORY: “Like a bird freed from chains, when do you fly? The problem has never been love or the question ofContinue reading “A love allegory (An exposition)”

Love personified


Now I stay in love. Is love a place then?  Is it already morphed or is it continually metamorphosing? If love depended on gravity, would a fall mean stagnation or a state where one continually chooses to be low for the benefit of a SHARED Love? We’ve often treated love as an verb. The conceptContinue reading “Love personified”

HOME; WHEREVER I AM (A POEM)


Inspired by a recent dialogue with a friend Clearly, if I walked on by and I could recognize it, I might call it home. If my lips could part to allow the air through my larynx an escape, without my brain processing its phonetics, it certainly would feel like home. If the thought of itContinue reading “HOME; WHEREVER I AM (A POEM)”

Confidently SELF-AWARE or Confidently PROUD?


Why is this example important? While the subject of discussion is not loyalty, I believe there’s nothing that feeds pride more than blind devotion; a nod and clap to EVERY gesture, action and word from a person.

Although, I must admit, being exposed to more people makes me realize that the average Ghanaian isn’t as tall, compared to other partsContinue reading “CONFIDENCE looks good on YOU; A personal ‘case study’ and analogy”

Stop Using The Word Normal


Stop using the word normal. Start using the word average. When you look at a Gaussian distribution, otherwise known as a normal distribution,  it runs from negative infinity to positive infinity. In other words, for any characteristic, with a large number of people(this is an important statistical caveat), you’d expect that most people would aggregate aroundContinue reading “Stop Using The Word Normal”

Identity


So why is it important to know one’s identity? Identity and purpose are linked and I’d like to think that purpose helps in the transformational aspect that leads to the definition of one’s identity. For instance, if you are thrift shopper, chances are whenever you need a new gadget, you consider specific things like its durability, multi-functional purpose, aesthetic features, etc. With those specifics, you know exactly what you want once you see it.
