breakthrough breast cancer

My fellow poets and I have created a group called the Walking Wordsmiths.  We are participating in the Aviva Walk London to Breakthrough Breast Cancer. On 8 September 2007 thousands of women and men will gather together for one challenge, to walk 44km through the streets of London, with the chance to make a difference in the fight against breast …

who is this guy?

I was trolling through some old memories this morning.  All of sudden, I couldn’t remember who I was; or who I am. Will the real Clay Lowe please stand up? I was born Clayton Lamont Lowe.  But from the very beginning, Clayton didn’t exist.  My family called me Lamont.  Then Clayton appeared when school started.  Then I became two people; …

It seems that high powered professional women are caught in a bind. …

yoruba legends

  This past week or so I have a huge demand on my intellectual reserves so there hasn’t been much time left over for blogging.  But no worries, I shall endeavour to persevere.  I’ve been doing some research on African legends.  I thought I’d share a few of the stories with you.  Here’s one about Akiti the Hunter.
