Happy Holidays Gems!
How was your Christmas day? I hope it was bright, sweet and chilled! I got to Kaduna the afternoon of Christmas Eve after a two hours plus drive from Abuja. That evening my parents took me out for ice cream at Havilah Icecream, After Angwarimi in Kaduna North, Kaduna.
I have a new video up on SARF Uncut, my booktube channel. Reading fiction can teach many life lessons apart from sharing a wonderful story. I discuss lessons from my 2018 Reads.

WHAT I AM READING
“Your eyes memorise the hours,
Stretch dry moments into succulent eternities/
You are the fragrance,
Which lends a name to varnished gardens.”
-Tender Moments by Niyi Osundare.
Apart from reading my coursework, I picked up Tender Moments by Niyi Osundare yesterday. It’s a collection of rhythmic, vivid, mushy love poems. For Boxing Day breakfast I ate spicy chicken pepper soup with boiled plantains and the title poem. I look forward to finding other poems I’d love dearly.
