Pharrell Williams – Happy (Official Music Video)

Katy Perry – Dark Horse (feat. Juicy J) (Official) ft. Juicy J

Beyoncé – Drunk in Love (Explicit) ft. JAY Z

I’ve always fancied myself a music lover and wanna be entertainer. At one point in my life, I loved taking charge at parties and rocking the tunes… Music is truly a pure form of joy that each of us can interpret anyway we wish. I’d like to share a few songs I like and hopefully you can add yours in the comments. What type of music do I like? My taste is pretty far reaching. It has to speak to me first… So enjoy a sampling of songs I love… I put Pharrell first because HAPPY is exactly what music makes me feel. Come back later for more!

Best African Music Mix – 2014

Hot Afrobeats mix 2013/2014: Nigeria, Cameroon, Ghana Azonto, Togo, Skelewu African Music and more

I enjoy African music too and because there are a number of festivals this year, I thought I should add a couple of my favorites to this list. I love Fela’s music very much and he was always in the forefront of African music. The other two videos offer you a nice selection of music from the continent. If you’ve ever wanted to sample some music from long standing African Divas, I’d recommend these two posts of mine: Sweet Sensations I: African Divas Sing… and Sweet Sensations II: African Divas Sing… So enjoy the tunes and check back for more later.

Haiku: The Early Years…

Haiku: The Early Years... the world is a book

Haiku: The Early Years… the world is a book

This is not page three
Early years, part idyllic
Spent buried in books…

Curled up in a corner of my dad’s home office, book in hand, I entered the magical world of words. There, I found the sunny parts and the missing parts of my life; a world that made more sense. In this haiku, I share snippets of my early years… and I’m just being honest about the specific page numbers in my offline writings.

“Life is the childhood of our immortality.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Haiku: The Early Years...

Haiku: The Early Years… Secrets

This is not page two
Mystified by my childhood
Shrouded in secrets…

Some parts of my earliest years were shrouded in mystery. The inexplicable absence of certain details filled in by invented imagery.
