……..Said no one ever. (As far as great events having a calming effect, both good and bad, are concerned).
First, I have no explanation whatsoever for using my own pictures in this post. Anyone who knows me knows that it took some serious fight with my awkwardness to make utter fun of me lying down on the floor (which has been my current mood off-late) and putting my barely covered bum on a wet street in near -12 degrees weather behind some crappy motel. Anyways, not the point-ish.
I’ve been meaning to post this for the longest of time. Like 7 months ago, actually let’s just say like two months go. Every time I turned on my laptop and keyed in the first few sentences, I would try and go back to Twitter, read the hateful, vile and sexist comments that were indirectly redirected at me, for some motivation, only for me to be so disappointed in humanity. Or how black girls look like something that is the opposite of what drop dead gorgeous European girls look like. Or something CRUDE (even for me) about Africa. There was always something. I cannot exactly say I am fully motivated to do this today. I’m mourning though and writing always has a way of helping me deal with loss. That, and the after-effect of watching ‘Hidden Figures‘, ‘Queen of Katwe‘ and waiting for Disney’s Belle in ‘Beauty and the Beast‘. So welcome to my almost always incoherent mind (seriously).
