I know what it feels to be in hell

I am beginning to slowly figure out this thing called life. It's taken a while, but I am slowly getting there. For the most part, I have been crawling into the labyrinth of life, ignorantly and without guidance, sense of direction, purpose or focus. Its been a crazy ride defined with an abundance of tears, regrets, and most importantly, valuable lessons.

Why God is a stranger in most churches

He spoke as if he had the monopoly of biblical knowledge, wisdom and understanding. For two hours we listened to him blather on and on about the "word of God." He was an entertaining preacher. He cracked jokes intermittently, and tried his best to be engaging and relevant. We were glued to him. So glued, that we would occasionally cheer him on with shouts of amen and hallelujah juxtaposed with raucous laughter.

Good Morning Haters

The following scene has played in my mind countless times. The year is AD 2040-ish. I am huko ma-fifty something years. Proudly donning white hair and a tired semi-potbelly. After years of bribing wazee with "chai", I am finally inducted as a bonafide member in the village council of elders. It's an achievement worth observing a moment of silence. 

By the wisdom of the gods, I am a father of three rascals. Though I am salivating to be a grandpa someday. It's perhaps the only thing causing me to still hang on the thread of life. My firstborn is a stylish young lady who goes with a modern botanical name on social media. She curiously carries her mother's beauty and royal elegance perfectly complemented, of course by her father's intelligence and brilliance.
