Life is a bit like a Pressure cooker sometimes. For me, the past three weeks or the past month have been an intense ride and its felt like I’ve been put in a pressure cooker that I can’t come out of but gotta stay in … Continue reading Pressure: LET OUT SOME STEAM!!
I have the wonderful opportunity as holding dual heritage in that I was born and bred in the UK and fully British, but I was born to Parents from the motherland Ghana, also affectionately known as “Black Stars” and originally “The Gold Coast” before that … Continue reading BLACK STARS 56 YEARS OF INDEPENDENCE: HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!
wow. just wow. the beauty of music….transporting you to another world. That’s what this instrumental has just done. And as Donovan boldy states “it evokes an emotion” and “makes your braver”. Well, I certainly feel braver, like I’ve been sent to a time with the First nation people eg. The native Americans. I kinda feel like Pocahantas…
That’s the power and the value of pieces like these because they take you to another word for those few moments where reality and life as you know it stand still and far behind you. It like a deep connection on a journey to find you. However, as to whether the artist who composed this piece was thinking on those lines, we will never know but until then enjoy this piece!
You know as ever, keeping it real, Peace!

Because I know that music makes you braver, and evokes emotion in a person. I will weekly list a track that moves me. I’m going to ask you to do the same. What music moves you to write, evokes emotion? Inspires you…to write. Create.
Here is a piece that has inspired me to write a Novel about a young man and his tribe in a African/ desert nation.
Literally I kept listening to this song, and the ‘star stuff’ gathered. I have a basic plot, names and histories of families formed, and the physical layout of the world map all materialized.
It’s a sweeping, beautiful epic piece.
The maker of a sentence launches out into the infinite and builds a road into Chaos and old Night, and is followed by those who hear him with something of wild, creative delight. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Love this quote! Ralph describes the creation of words in a metaphorical way that I wouldn’t have cared to imagine. Today, this quote has impacted me profoundly. I say that it has impacted because he’s inspired and exhorted me to look at words and sentences a little more differently. So my challenge to you for the week is this: Take time to consider the sentences you make. Consider what road you are paving. Are they arm stones and rocky, or are they smooth and Roman? Consider the way you make for the way you lead is pioneering to life…
Keeping it real, Peace!

So, I was talking with my mum today about the weekend events that took place recently and discussed how she received a prophetic word that she’d been pondering on. And this had to do with Celebration. She had seen how God had placed such an … Continue reading Celebration is connected to your fruitfulness…
wow. Inspirational Art. Enough said.
Titled “Dear Sir” this is the first time I’ve collaborated with my wife on an art piece. The collage is made using antique documentation found in abandoned Psychiatric wards across NY, some dating back to the 30’s and 40’s and I, of course created the stencil that adorns the foreground. The piece is mixed media and spray paint on 20″ x 16″ canvas.
