Of Facebook and Writing

I must admit am a late adopter to social networking, but am now totally hooked. Been Facebooking like crazy. I never knew the power of social networks and how easy it is to find people. I have connected with old friends, have made new ones, joined networks of interest …… The possibilities are endless.

This could not have come at a better time, as I need all the networks possible to help me promote my upcoming book. It is in very good shape and am optimistic that it shall be a hit.

I have been listing all the places I shall donate my book including churches, schools, youth groups etc since it has a positive message for everybody. I am also convinced that it is blessed to give 😉

Am off to Facebook!

Nairobi Dispatches

Recently, my lovely motherland has been rocked by strife occasioned by among other things, a recent general election. Without dwelling on the protagonists and antagonists, my family came together and we decided to put together a package of various items and took them to the many internally displaced people in our city, Nairobi.

It was a very fulfilling exercise, and we feel blessed to have been able to lend a helping hand to the needy. We also felt humbled by the outpouring of joy and sense of brother hood across ethnic and religious divides. We came together as a nation to heal the hearts of the afflicted and the affected. We were all guilty one way or another, affected one way or the other.

More importantly, the ordinary folks pulled together in the same direction. We are happy that normalcy and common sense is returning.

We thank God for our lovely country Kenya. May God bless our motherland.
