The attitude that I am trying to pick of late is “no fretting…”
Do not get it twisted though, I have always been a ‘no fret’ kind of person save for two things ;
- A constant stare-I do not like to feel people eyes on me…(working on it!)
- Slow traffic (how can I deal?)
The other day an Ex- friend of mine (we have down graded from friends to being acquaintances) told me they will be applying ‘my attitude’ on stuff!
While I am working on the above two issues, my general attitude is “Why fret while you can be ‘easy like Sunday morning’ and let the universe take care of its own? In any case the sun must rise tomorrow morning and still set as it usually does in the evening.”
…and in the spirit of coffee,
Coffee, fret ’em dark circles,a rub a time
Coffee, fret ’em weird wrinkles,a rub a time
Coffee, fret ’em damn nerves,a sip a time
No fret ,’em odds favor us,a chill a time
Above all our creator is in charge. No fretting.

She prepares Mboi and his siblings and sets them off for school. In their patched up otherwise clean uniform that sort of looks like all the colours of the rainbow came in unison to sing the national anthem, Continue reading “The coffee woman”
“I suddenly sniff a certain aroma, it is this sweetly antagonizing coffee aroma that sends a million signals to my mind which in turn triggers this deep longing for a nice cup of coffee. I am all alert now, alert, the word reminds me of a donkey I saw somewhere which on sighting a dog that was passing by suddenly stood at attention and straightened its ears giving the dog a serious gaze .How odd! When it happened more than once I was left wondering what it is with donkeys and dogs ,I will make sure to Google, I hope Mr. Google has an answer for me”
I startle and wake from my dream. I cannot remember what I dreamed about, I belong in the category of persons who we sure dream but but many a times we just cannot Continue reading “My delicious cup of coffee”
