My Eureka Moment

Google images
This morning I had an Aha! moment. 

I was behind the wheel, thoughts swivelling through my head.

Then, it hit me: the true meaning of success. 

This is no exaggeration: I felt like doing an Archimedes - bounding down the street (fully clothed of course) shrieking "Eureka! Eureka! I have found it!"  😀

Why I will never stop writing

Sometimes I ask myself, if I could rewrite my history, would I choose to be a writer again?

Read of the Week - The Ugly side of Professional Football

American football players (Google images)
This week's pick is a more poignant read. To the outside world, football or American football players are the definition of masculine strength, athleticism and success. Behind the scenes, players can pay a hefty price with their bodies, health and even their lives. The New York Times account of Patrick Risha's time on and off the field provides a riveting read.

*Thanks to reader Oby Ijeh for pitching a read for the week. That's another read in the pipeline! All suggestions on a 'read of the week' are highly welcome...and don't forget to post your comments (smiley emoji)*

 Happy reading!

Men have Rights too

"It is not only women that are oppressed, men are oppressed too; they just don't moan about it"

I took a mental pause when my brother said this. "Really?"

"Yeah!"

All at once, my Dad and brothers started talking: Men do not get to enjoy exclusive perks and privileges that women take for granted; the burden of expectation on men can also be crushing...as the list gathered pace and snowballed into a full-blown rant , I could only sit back and listen.

A New Series begins on Fresh Angle!




It's March already! But still, I must start by saying HAPPY NEW YEAR. Hope your year has been an exciting one so far.

Mine has been very fascinating. Working on a number of projects which I'm excited about. Unfortunately, my shifting priorities place Fresh Angle on the backburner once again.

But, I had an idea, brainwave, Eureka moment (if you like) while reading an article today.  I've decided to start a new weekly series titled "Read of the Week". 

It will simply be a fascinating, insightful, thought-provoking article on any topic culled from a reputable news outlet. Your thoughts, comments and analysis will be HIGHLY welcome.

Also, I'll be counting on you to recommend articles that you think would make a good "Read of the Week".

So, off to post the very first "Read of the Week"

Look forward to reading your comments.
