    The stray

    Every morning on her walk to work, Laura would come across a cat that was so clean that she always thought it must have an owner. Sometimes she would get close to try and pet it, but the look the cat gave her made her know she was not welcome. So it became her quest to befriend the cat. She would bring little bags of treats for the cat and sure enough, the cat became very friendly and started to warm up to her. After a few weeks of constant treats, the cat finally allowed Laura to pet him. Laura really started to look forward to her walk to work.…

    Gifted Kenyan Guitarists You Should Know About – Ryan Melomane

    So last weekend I met this great fingerstyle guitarist, and I got to know a little more about him. His name is Ryan Melomane.   Ryan Melomane is a fingerstyle guitarist from Kenya. In case you are wondering about his name, well it has a meaning. Ryan is his birth name while Melomane is a self-assigned name which means a music lover in French. Ryan Melomane, a lover of music, used to play piano but accessing the instrument was quite hard since he did not have his own. This made him want a more portable instrument and that is how he chose the guitar. He not only plays the guitar…

    MURANG’A – The Beautiful County

    So I haven’t been going anywhere because I have been broke. Can’t even feed myself to save my life lol! I have just been lazing around Nairobi and watching the good sites from a far (y’alls Instagram). Ooh and by Nairobi I mean Dagoretti (my friends say it’s not in Nairobi), the only good thing I can see here is the mud, lots of it! Anyway, let me not write about the mud in Dagoretti because if I do I will get mad since I will remember of how I have been coming to Nairobi CBD and everyone looks at me like I am a moving museum. Y’all ain’t ever…

    Making use of these oats – Pancake Oats

    On Saturday I was just home doing nothing and ended up finding myself googling everything that came up to my mind. I had thought throughout the week of how I should start eating healthy and all. I always think like that every new year and then, when the year gets old I always stop thinking about a healthy life and eat whatever I see. so last year in January (2017), I had done some shopping of healthy things. I had a list of things I had collected from different health blogs and I actually bought everything on the list. One of the things I bought was oats. Well, to be…

    When my world stopped

        It stopped! for a minute, or so I thought. I did not feel it at the moment, for it just happened, like lightning. everyone else could see that I was stuck. stuck for a moment or so it thought. But everyone knew, knew that I wasn’t just stuck for a moment, I was stuck in a world that would be stuck, if not for a decade, then forever.     but I did try to untangle me from this world. my own world! a world so dark I had created that I couldn’t even see myself for a moment. but they all watched, as I tried to free myself. struggling,…

    What I Know For Sure – Oprah Winfrey

    I am not a fan of inspirational books or self-help or basically any book that tries to tell me how I should live. I just like fictional stories with or without happy endings. Since they don’t try too much to correct my way of living or give me rules on how to live MY LIFE. but recently while I was flipping over books at a bookstand, I came across Oprah Winfrey’s ‘What I know for sure’ I looked at it and thought to myself “Ummm we don’t like such books or anything written by people who have made it in life” but as I was returning it back to the…

    Gifted Kenyan Guitarist You Should Know About – AcouSlyk

    We are not normal humans, we are guitar players. Guitarists are a different breed of human.

Guitarists are very creative people and this can be seen when they are playing ……this is even seen through the stage names they give themselves. The names go from magical fingers, golden fingers bla, bla, bla awesomeness and here we have our…
