A Tribute to my Mother.


“Sometimes, when one person is missing, the whole world seems depopulated.”  — Lamartine

I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. If you were once connected with someone, does it make sense that the connection is broken just because of a physical death? No, the connection stays. You may just have to listen differently. You may just have to talk differently. The truth is that the connection is never broken. It’s quite impossible to break the most powerful connection in the universe. As long as you exist, the connection stays. Those we love don’t go away; they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near; still loved, still missed and very dear. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. My mother is always in mind; forever in my heart. The life of the dead is placed in the heart of the living. Forever in this heart of mine, an everlasting bond, you’ll stay, until we meet again someday.

The Memories that a mother leaves behind are cherished forever

Saying goodbye to a loved one is the hardest thing to do, more so when such loved one has left this world to join the saints. Though I have no doubt in my mind that my darling mother is now resting comfortably in the Lord’s bosom, I still found it difficult talking about her using past tenses. As she will be committed to mother earth, it’s extremely difficult bringing myself to tell her goodbye because the reality of her demise is still like a distant dream to me. Continue reading

On the Issues of BESTFRIENDS & LOVERS And FEMINISM


Good morning beautiful readers. I actually slept well yesterday night but had the weirdest of dreams though. Not some sought of nightmare or something.. but you know those dreams you just have….! that doesn’t have a beginning, middle or an end! Totally different storylines! Yeap… that kind. Anyway, I slept well and I really don’t know what happened but my old woman turned his morning’s devotion into some kind of prayer revival! Basically, it’s only the both of us that are at home.. soo.. She’s free I guess..” If the mum doesn’t pray for the family, who Will??” !! So “Bloodline” by Sidney Sheldon will be my 1572nd book in the land of the living!(Since I started counting)

bloodline

I just bought a new shelf and now, I think I really want to read only hard copy books and stack them on my shelf..  you know when visitors stay at the house, they always use my room.. my room is some kind of Oseiga &Visitors room  so when a visitor comes he will be like .. “Dr Aleburu, your son must be really intelligent.. See all his books.. (in baritone voice) Brillient Boy!” (I hope they don’t then get to see my secondary school award of Best Stepper Male).. Dear reader, please, I beg you…. I really really really want you to comment on my blog posts (its actually weird to see about 800 views per day with only 3 or 2 comments anyway)..at least share your own opinions… at least today’s own!

The Conundrum of Manhood, the Zip, The Girls and the Thread!


“My elders don’t let us argue much over this issue. Just as Mazi Ugochukwu has said, let the thread face the cut and let the zip face the wrath”
Chief Okonkwo exclaimed, almost hitting the tray littered with pieces of kolanuts, as he slammed the wooden table placed amidst the community elders sitted round at the center of Mr. Ugochukwu’s sitting room
“Nonsense! My people, the people of Umuaka! —

THE FINAL LAP: Pacify My Soul

Source: santabanta.com

So I have decided to write everyday till my final exams begin (or at least every other day). One hidden truth is I’m scared, sorry I meant really scared. Results were pasted at the department two days ago; I barely managed to escape an F in Computer Graphics. Generally, this year I had the worst result I have had so far since I began at the University; gathering a good number of Cs and a D and subsequently sucking my GP horribly. Let’s get something clear, this post is not one where I try to encourage myself or try to justify my grade point crash. By May I would be a graduate and just as I said yesterday, I think I am more anxious than excited. What next? Go for a higher degree? Get a job? ……………If I decided to go for a higher one, where? What does tomorrow hold for me? Those questions bang my head alomost every second…I have had a good time at the university I must admit. I have met a lot of wonderful people who I wouldn’t ordinarily want to leave if i did have a choice.. Of the 8 of us who were roommates in 100level, only 4 are left……… What about routine? what happens to routine after college?  Friends? Love.. ? where do I even get to serve? will i understad their language? Eat their food?… Continue reading

THE FINAL LAP : Making Peace With All Men


“Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.”
– Heb 12:14

I’m finally rounding off my time at the University and sincerely speaking, I consider myself more anxious than excited. Big questions like “What next?” pops up every now and then. Is it too strange not to be interested in a master’s degree? Must I go for one? The truth is that I am still yet to see any point in going for one but then I wouldn’t rule that out just yet, I would still be on the lookout; maybe I just might come across one. I know it sounds somehow studying computer Science for four years with a good GP and then wanting to cook for a living. Yeap! I want to become a chef and I would choose an opportunity to learn how to cook in Italy over a master’s degree anywhere in the world.
