Curled eyelashes fluttered close like delicate butterflies.
Nature dainty in the wind swaying, buzzing, green growing.
Me, 2018, Life’s Lemons and Depth.
I’m at peace with myself as the new continuation of days float in.
Greetings from sunny, chilled Yola! Welcome to December. Please be content, positive and safe this month Gem.
My law school campus is located at Yola South of Adamawa State. Hausa, Pidgin, English are mostly spoken and other Nigerian languages. Fulani people live here and they’re calm, welcoming and humorous. There is electricity and clean, running water all day long. Yola’s weather is unique. Its radiant sun is the ultimate glow filter. The air is dry even with the billowing winds. Giving the weather a sunny, harmattan feel. Daytime is longer here; dawn before 6am and dusk before 7pm. Truly amazing because the sun rises in Lagos around to 7am and sets past 7pm. My body is still trying to adjust.
I’ve spent this week doing my registration and settling in on campus. Lectures commence next week and I’m excited but anxious. I might have a new post schedule for stories and reviews once they commence. I’m really enjoying the serenity. Two white butterflies kissed my fingers on Wednesday. What was your last week of November like?
What I Am Reading
This December I want to finish reading some books on my DNF list. Guerrilla Post by Obari Gomba and Kabu Kabu by Nnedi Okorafor. Then start reading new books like Tender Moments by Niyi Osundare(poetry collection), From Caves of Rotten Teeth by A. igoni Barrett(short story collection) and online fiction I discover.
New Booktube Series
I uploaded some videos on my Booktube Channel, SARF Uncut. Steamy Storytime is a short video series where under 10 minutes I read erotic stories I’ve written. Episode 1: Sunny Views of Us is up. Click here to watch it!!
The first two were playful, text videos. But they helped me work on my camera shyness. If you enjoy my videos, like and subscribe Gem.
Don’t forget to breathe and glow!
