At best, I am disappointed, and that is just my opinion of the BAKE 2013 blog awards, but who cares really? This is a world where everyone has a title to their opinion, but only a few get a cheque for the same.
That is off my chest now, my best blogs from Kenya will still not feature on the list, and I will keep reading them anyway. The mainstream does not always hold the best nectar, and I know this from experience. If you are looking to the best in the mainstream, you are very lost, in my opinion. I prefer the underground, where people put their best, where they show up, with something tangible, and leave you contented and reflective. I hate it, when your last post is about being chosen as the winning blog, and the immediate one before that is about your nomination. The whole process took months, and you did not have anything to post during the waiting period. What does that say about you and your blog?
My blog-posting schedule is irregular, and I do not offer this blog for any awards. I just deliver a little something for my readers. On the other hand, you offer your blog for an award, as the best of the best, and that implies that you are also ready for the scrutiny that comes from all the eyeballs and robots that read it, which gives me a right to criticize; so, don’t go about crying foul. Man or woman up, by posting something, anything so that I can see your blog as worthy of the title you won.
Next time, try to hide the award in a book, or a song, so that I don’t learn about it until a year later. Otherwise, I think I might again come up with an incoherent and bitter post like this one, as my two cents opinion.
I have to say this, the experimental typing posture that I attempted a while ago did not work for me. I dumped it for a traditional one, which was to sit up with my feet on the ground, apart, and my wrist suspended just above the keyboard.
Other than that report, I will tell you something else today. Alone is still my favorite hangout, because I do not have to impress anybody, can work on the things I love, can create or consume at the rate that feels comfortable to me, and above all, I can be me, incredibly creative and curious.
So today, I jumped out of a gig because I realized late that I do not have the means to complete it. I used the features placed on the system that served me, to quit the project, and thought that was the right way of doing it. It turns out that I was wrong. I was supposed to also follow up with a request to withdraw, which I did not, and now I am liable for some default fees. I wish I knew the exact amount. Continue reading
Am trying to write fast, and test how my posture affects my writing mood. I have moved a lot, from the couch, to the bed, and now on the edge of the couch, sitting on the armrest and typing on my keyboard. The laptop is beneath my face, and I look down on it, an angle of 45 degrees or thereabout, and my feet are resting casually on the ground. My entire body weight is on my bottom, resting on the couch arm, and my feet just anchor me against falling forwards. Continue reading
Birds of a feather flock together, wolves need packs, and the lone ranger human is often mistaken for a lunatic, yet most of the time, you have to stay alone, to move ahead. People are attracted to you because of what you are, and you are that person or thing because of what you do. You do things because of what Continue reading
I will squeeze this in to tell you that I am still working on being alone. Being alone is akin to being contented and the only happy person is that who is contented with himself or herself. Contentment is the way of nature, and I am looking forward to mimicking nature at every opportunity. It is a lovely thing, in my opinion, and I think if you have an idea of what I speak of, then it might be right for you too. Find yourself, and do not look for me, because I might be far away from another soul, a place where I connect to all in a nonphysical way, so the only way to find me would be by looking inside you.

Let me confess that I sometimes get pissed with my friends because they seem so busy. They cannot answer calls because they are working. If they are not working, they are taking an evening or weekend class to advance their career. If it is not that, then it is their fabulous weekend out Continue reading
Many people want to change the world
Many people make up the world
You can change it, but you probably don’t need to
You probably just need to stay here and see it
You may do that by taking care of a plant
You can do that by taking care of what you tame Continue reading
