I (Still) Dream of Africa

Three times a year my parents and I would embark on a 470km journey from Nairobi to Mombasa for our family vacation. The road was bumpy, the car was hot, but the anticipation of seeing that beautiful ocean would keep us going. I've always had a fascination with the ocean. The way the current moves you and the sound of the waves crashing upon the shore. The vastness of the ocean and how all encompassing…

The Awakening

I have been unable to write for the past few weeks. It's not that I don't want to write. I love writing. It lives within me at all moments of the day. It is like an old friend that will always know my heart, completely. But lately, it has been hard to write. Today I am looking over a number of unpublished blog posts on this site. In each one, I was trying to say…

Songs That Totally Sound Like Other Songs

This past weekend my friend came over and was telling me how the song Blurred Lines was totally stolen from this Marvin Gaye song from the 1970's. I was skeptical at first but then I took a listen and...wow, that song is totally stolen, not that original in my mind anymore. So I figured I would put together a list of songs that totally sound like other songs. These are songs I have come across…

Happiness Lies In Your Own Hands

Today I had one of those days where life just feels good and the universe seems to be smiling upon me. I woke up, relaxed with some meditation, dressed up and felt good about myself, and got to work.

To fully understand this story, you must rewind through my life to take a glance at these precious trees. When I was a child, I would sit in my favorite loquat tree outside my home and sing songs among the birds. It was my favorite hiding spot.…

Just Believe in Yourself

For the past few weeks I have been listening as friends and family share their concerns with me. They want my advice and I will always give it readily and always lend them a shoulder to cry on. But lately I have been pressing on my own shoulders. Through the practices of reiki and meditation, I am learning how to calm my own anxieties and heal my own hurts. And through these ancient practices, I…
