Dancing Stars



"One must have chaos in oneself, to give birth to a dancing star". ~Friedrich Nietzsche

The brilliance embodied within my children has now been explained. I always wondered how I managed to give birth to astoundingly intelligent and amazingly talented kids. (I'm not biased. Ask anyone who has met them.) It seems my never-ending chaos does, indeed, have a purpose.

(Yes, I am aware I've taken the whole quote out of context. I like it this way. Leave me be.)

  1. LOL: The only way to keep quotes relevant it by taking them out of context. You may quote me on that:)

  6. kk ~ What part of the world would that be? What is it that puzzles you? I'm quite open about myself. Ask. I will probably tell you. Although - I must say ... reading your blogs does not necessarily lend much to your character either.

  7. White Kenya....and now white America... The former due more to my ignorance while the later... well... I try every day.
    And the fact that you are so open and still...
    Well, you'll get the questions alright... one by one:)

    "And the fact that you are so open and still ..." Indeed. I do hold back just a wee bit.

  12. kk ~ Do you miss the foggy mist of an Aberdare morning?

  13. To be honest...no; I'm not a morning person. I miss the approach of night though; clear aired dusks punctuated by the risin sounds of the crickets and of civilization fading away.
    What do you miss?

  14. I miss the sunsets and the clarity of the equatorial night sky ... endless stars.

  15. I miss the people the most (at dusk).... the women trekking home after a day in the market... the girls rushing home to get their chores done before the mothers get there... the boys hanging out... chilling.. while the occassional drunk stops by to regale them with tales of fantasized exploits:)

  16. I do miss the people. How can you not?
