    She has periods of quietness. They are long and unsettling. Unsettling because Sayo was never a quiet child. Of all our children, she was the noisiest. The one most like her mother, Ranti. The one I loved the most. I know parents aren’t allowed to have favorites. I know it is wrong and unfair to my three other children that […]

    18/08/1975 Dear Mum, I can’t believe I am here. It is everything you said it would be. First day I arrived felt like a homecoming. I could hardly sleep that night. The next day we went on a school tour with a student guide. It felt like I knew this place better than he did as we walked us through places […]

      This story needed a happy ever after. So I have given it one. I loved Ropo like no writer is allowed to love her characters. I loved Sallie too. Todd, I really didn’t know. He was just there. So this sequel helps me know Todd. And I have discovered that this is a little family I will always love. […]

    I started writing this a while ago on Medium. I am still not sure I have the right ending. Endings bore me these days.  But let’s talk about this photo. I woke up like that y’all. There is something about NYC that brings out the fineness in me. Even without having a bath or makeup. LOL.  I haven’t loved a […]

    I find that when I want to write, when I put my mind to it and etc, I actually write. I am not saying it is as amazing as when the spirit leads. Lol. But there is something to say for hard work.  It was an amazingly sweet November but yay to December. Yay to the God who is the […]

      It will be winter soon but for this one day in October, it is warm enough for him to wear her favorite t-shirt. He can still remember the way her face shone with excitement as she handed him the t-shirt at Easter. He can still remember the way she smelled like spring when he pulled her close to say […]
