Evolution of language you say.

Necessity is the mother of invention and one has to marvel at human ingenuity sometimes, the sheer creativity latent in Homo-sapiens is truly mind-blowing – you know a creation hits the mark when you ask yourself, ‘why didn’t I think of that?’ because it is the sort of thing you would have thought of were…

School glorious school.

I have always been studious, the process of learning and the school environment excite me; I know for sure I will end up an academic someday, if my cheese doesn’t slide off the cracker before then that is – is that a scoff I hear? I too will do the same when you gush with…

Destiny

  My most pensive moments are during my morning ablutions; it is amazing the sort of clarity one gets from such an activity, I highly recommend it. Maybe not so much the activity but more the ‘scheduled’ introspection time. Thinking and asking questions is not the sole preserve of those who study(or have studied) humanities…

Uncle Eddie Says – The Return.

So much has happened since my last post; it took an entire six years or so and a little push from a loved one to get back to writing again and I’m coming back to life! I could get into the why I haven’t been making contributions since then but that is reserved for the…

The L-word

There have been many an article on the subject and I’m sure there will be plenty more written. What is it about the L-word that just makes people act all foolish and stupid? And no I’m not referring to my same gender loving cousins either. I’m talking about the “ever elusive” LOVE…or is it? My…

Brotherhood

Every relationship has a rhythm, a sort of understanding people have with each other, and while you both try to find that rhythm; there will be plenty friction.  Sibling relationships are not immune to it. An understanding however, does not mean the verbal and physical spats completely end, no sir.  There will still be moments,…

Bomme le bo ntate

  “Ukuzala ukuzelula” is an Nguni proverb which basically means; giving birth has certain advantages or benefits…an investment of sorts. Having a child has so much meaning attached to it. Women, who are considered barren, have to endure tremendous torment from not only the husband but from the in-laws too. It is almost expected that…

Going over the hill

“Youth is wasted on the young” – that must have been a phrase coined by somebody who was clearly very well over the hill. Having said that though, I do have to admit that there is some truth to it. There is much freedom in being young. What with taking your health, mobility and verve…

When nature calls…

I’m a very curious person and a lot of things fascinate me, attraction being one of them. What is it about another, which turns even the most resolute of people buck wild?  Perhaps it is just that…that visceral need to get naked and do ungodly things to the object of our attraction…Is it lust? Is…

Love at first read

Starting this type of thing has a certain sense of nostalgia to it.  It reminds me of school where we would be given the task to write an essay of more than a certain number of words and I for one would run out of things to say round about a hundred words. Unless you…
