To say that life has changed in the last two weeks would be an understatement. A more close-to-reality statement would be that all of life hit a major pause button. It’s like when you watch a scene on TV with a speed setting that is fast-forwarding it all and then you suddenly have the scene…Read more Notes from a Crisis
All About the Feels
Happy new year, friends and family! I’ve been pondering for quite a while now what you’re about to read. Frankly, it’s about time I penned it down. It all began to come together for me as I visited with a friend of mine last month. A fellow mother, she shared with me how God had…Read more All About the Feels
People are such tools.
** WARNING: Long-ish post. Well worth the read, though.** Sooo, I’ve had cause recently to look back on 2019 a few times.

In my opinion, all of life is…Read more People are such tools.

The way most of…Read more The Problem with Agreement – part 1
Why do I often feel like I’m missing out when I see someone communicating in sign language, or more than one person signing? It’s literally one of those modes of communication that comes across so beautifully to me. I’m thinking that this is along the same vein of what we feel when there are certain…Read more Signing out
BB5 – Handfuls of communication
It's time again to take it back - to an old blog post I used when I was a traveler. Location: Lagos, Nigeria. I wrote at the time from the perspective of a Nigerian expatriate, which I was. And am. Enjoy! Something really got my attention today. Ok, maybe two things. So this might not…Read more BB5 – Handfuls of communication
BB4 – The race to survive
For those of you who love traveling, our adventures continue! (If you're new to my blogbacks, go catch up - see archives). Okay guys, this has to be done. Yes, let's talk about driving - in Lagos. It's a thing of wonder, I tell you. Headed out to a mall, I asked the driver (of the house…Read more BB4 – The race to survive
My tales of life in Nigeria as a Nigerian expatriate continues... I'm back! Did you miss me? Naturally....I expected you to. Well, while my original intent was to continue in backtracking mode today, I'm heavily driven to first inform you about some goings-on today. While out to deposit money in a newly-opened bank account, I…Read more Blogback (BB2)
