I've been afforded the opportunity to partake in a brain picking exercise by reading and reviewing the book: Uncensored Black Consciousness - The Return (by Sane Sihiya) ahead of its launch, which will be this weekend in Fourways.
Firstly, I am so humbled that I get to experience a body of work that hasn't reached the shelf yet. Also, I can't begin to express how proud I am that a young black woman decided to publish her knowledge and sentiments in an effort to to share her experience of Biko's teachings.
I fell in love with reading at a fragile age when books became my respite when it sometimes felt like the world was resting on my shoulders. I remember my dad encouraging my sister and I to become avid readers by installing a headboard, which so happened to be a built in book shelf, in my sister's bedroom when we were toddlers. At the time, I didn't understand why he was so crazy about books but later I came to understand.
I don't think that there's an escape that is tantamount to the experience that a good book can give a person. I always say that writing is one of the supreme forms of art because it is an extension of who the writer is. When someone writes a book, they really share so much of themselves with the reader.
And although I love to take my time, I was asked to complete the book by Friday so that I can join in the conversation at the launch. I'm thrilled, this week is going to be a great escape!

I can't wait to share some perspective with you guys and inform you about how the book is.
Congratulations to Sane, I don't doubt that this is the first of your many wonderfully inspirational editions. ❤️ .

If you're a lover of dining and contemporary Italian cuisine and it so happens that you haven't been to Gemelli - please do it before the calendar reads 2018.
It is amazing! 👏🏾👌🏾❤️

My mom never forgets that I was the one baby who used to cry so much that she'd end up crying too. I just wanted attention, that's all 😇

Still my favourite #throwback

I love being introduced to rock music that's new to me. It makes me happy. The music I listen to (religiously) is somewhat an extension of who I am. Nothing beats discovering different artists and feeling connected to their music. @michael_vuyo sharing this list. Will definitely be listening to these tonight. 🖤

The secret is to establish the desires of your heart. Then, to participate relentlessly in the fight to achieve them.
Today will be a good day if you want it to be

A big shout out to @agrifoodfestgp and MEC Lebogang Maile for delivering the invite. Looking forward to, not only making kick ass smoothies, but attending Inaugural Food Fest next week Saturday! You've made my day.
