Proposal or Date Idea - The Top of the Empire State Building

Posted in: , , , ,

One of the things I always knew I would try if I ever made it to New York was to get to the top of the Empire State Building. It's one of the tallest buildings in the world, it's wonderfully designed, and a favorite of Hollywood. I didn't know I would be visiting it with someone, and when that someone was Atala, our visit has one of the best highlights of our years and travels together.

Short Story : Love's Pain - Part 3

Posted in: ,

I quickly run out of the kitchen towards the front door with Lolu right behind me and with Fola leading us to where his sister was. I tried to think of what I should have grabbed from the house depending on what happened to her but my mind was too occupied worrying about the safety of my child. Quick glances up the street and I see her bike sprawled on the floor, next to where she was sitting cry.

By Stupendous Grace in response to Funmi's One Woman's Experience Growing Up Dark-Skinned in Nigeria

Thanks Funmi for this; very true.

However, the truth is that the issues extend beyond just skin colour and weight. I was dark skinned, skinny and quite tall growing up ( I still am). The comments I heard from neighbours and teachers almost eroded my self esteem. They made me want to slouch every chance I got because I was ashamed to stand tall and be noticed.

Happy Fourth Of July!

Posted in: , ,

Today is independence day in America and a public holiday for most workers. Atala is home, and we're going to be relaxing most of the day. Maami has been paid for on Dobox, the popcorn will soon go in the oven, and then it will be movie time. If we feel up to it, we may stroll out for some fireworks at our local park. Fun stuff. I hope everyone enjoys their day, whether in America or elsewhere. Happy July 4th!

Posted in: , ,

Actress, Juliet Ibrahim is a stunning lady but had not really come to my attention until she made some very valid and intelligent comments about the OJB Fundraiser. Turns out that she's multilingual, speaks French, Spanish and English, grew up all over the world, and is married and a mother in addition to her work with her Kidney Foundation and being an actress. She talks about all that and more with Flytime TV recently.
