The Evergreen Tree

Each time I took a walk, that tree caught my eye. Since my mind was filled with so many thoughts, I could not place why the tree appealed to me. One day, I had to stop and take a hard look at the tree. It was then I realized why it always stood out. In the midst of dry, deserted, leafless and barren-looking trees, it stood tall, fresh and evergreen. Read on HERE...

The Guy In The Mailroom

It was one of those periods when I was convinced my job could not have been the will of God. The stress, the feeling of being irrelevant, the negative comments from colleagues, and the condition of my health could only help buttress the thoughts running through my mind. I spent quite some time ruminating on a resignation. All that remained was to convince Mr. Rita*, who was not seeing things from my perspective, hence the delay in making a decision.

As I walked past the mailroom one day, I saw the guy in the mailroom praying with a colleague. The scene so touched me that I had to mention it a few days later when I needed to use the mailroom. Read on HERE...

Beyond The Hurdle

I think this happened sometime in 2000. You know how a woman can blossom, be energized and be self-motivated by simply being in a “great” relationship? That was how I felt. Every area of my life seemed to have meaning – especially my academics. I felt so good with myself that I made an attempt at an abstract for a student paper contest, which was accepted. I had a few months to write the full paper, get acceptance and present the paper at a conference.

It wasn’t long before my young, innocent heart was shattered into pieces...Read more HERE

Moulding Vessels Of Honour

My new found friend is someone I would call consistent. Initially when we started keeping in touch, he would say for example, “I will call by 4pm on Sunday.” True to his words, he will call as promised. He did this a couple of times. At first I thought it was because we were still getting to know each other. If for any reason he could not meet an appointment, he will notify me. But as time went on, I realized it was his nature – to value relationships and keep appointments.

I, on the other hand, could make a promise, or fix an appointment but respond to it whenever I felt like...Read on HERE

The True Reference

EROLyrics has moved to EROInspirations

Parking the car in reverse as per company’s policy had never been a challenge. The car park had clear demarcations, in white, which one could see whether it was day or night. All I had to do was adjust my side mirrors accordingly, stay within the demarcations of the slot I wanted to park in, and there – all my shortcomings at parking straight were taken care of.

One fateful day, it rained heavily. Drainage was not good and I found out that the parking lot was covered with water and dirts. I could not see the white demarcations that gave me guidance for parking. I decided to park in between 2 cars and use them as my reference for parking. I aligned my car between these two. When I stepped out of the car, I realized that my car was not parked straight. Why? Read on HERE
