Cosmopolitan village and other musings
My birth village is
partially stuck in time.True story. If the last time you
visited was in 1986, relax, you will not need to ask for directions.
Seriously. Yes, there is a tarmac
road, then there is the metal donkey elevated at the market place (lest we

Village Truths – marinate and serve raw
Last week, on a day
Limuru decided it would be summer for 6.06 seconds, we risked and went out on fun hunt
in the town. The hunt yielded nothing of course because you see, as much as I
love Limuru, unless you are looking for a village pub ‘hole-in-the-wall’...

Diary of a village Mohican
Normal is boring.  That, since as far back as my memory goes, has been my motto. That was how I attended
a friend’s wedding in Tz donning jeans and it got her upset for years, accusing me of not respecting her day to look good - mind you, I think I looked g...

Grace, The Village Beauty
Like clockwork, I meet her every weekday when school is in session, at the same spot, at the same
time, rain, shine or fog, on my way from walking the children to the school bus.
Like all villagers do in politeness, we acknowledge each other either by a nod...

The Avocado tree, and the birds
The tree is senile,
methinks, and it must have the flora version of arthritis. I mean, a tree
taller than a two storey house, visibly older than everybody and everything
except Methuselah, bears only four fruits for the whole avocado fruit season,
fruits th...

The Village Cowboy
I vividly remember him
from when I was a little gender confused girl. But before you all sprint into

I am a villager, I will not mind my business
I had just walked my
kids to the school van about 200 meters from the house. On my way back, I spotted
some beautiful bananas (I have told you about my house and bananas, my antenna
is always up for bananas). I remembered there were only three bananas left ...

Muthoni, the Moon and the Concoction
Time check, 7.53pm, Monday the 9 th January, 2017. Kids already snoring softly, husband not yet home, just me and

has eluded ...

Dredloc'd Villager
My locs doctor, Eric, has a pair of blessed hands. Not only
is he an amazing locs doctor, but his head massages are a bit like an out of
body experience. As his fingers make calculated circles starting from your
temples to the middle of the head, nothing el...

A village guide for summer bunnies
Many, many years ago, in the land of 'My Village', the villagers turned up in huge numbers, in the Nyayo spirit, to a harambee to
help a neighbor’s son make his way to Boston. The harambee was a success, and within a week, the boy flew out. This
was nothing...
