  Comic books, since their existence have always been the staple way of entertaining a diverse audience. Often stereotypically associated with geeky white boys, the surge of comic books turned TV/ films has encouraged a new audience to discover the magic of this pop-phenomenon. It’s an exciting time in the entertainment industry, as this genre is an avenue with endless possibility!   I have always had a love an admiration for comic books. Sneaking into […]

Darkness, heart beating, Mirrors reflecting, Rage burning. RED Broken glass, Green eye monster DANCING Medusa kisses your lips. RED BLACK And then WHITE It hurts.

Darkness, heart beating, mirrors reflecting, Pride glowing! REANIMO, REANIMA, REANIMAMOS.  (An abstract insight of overcoming obstacles, to start again ) I am not […]

THE UNKNOWN

Photographer: Abe Atri, Model: Anniwaa Buachie   I rarely ever discuss my work or personal life in public. My mother raised me with the concept of keeping things to yourself as a good thing. Maybe it’s an African superstition. She has always said to me to keep things to myself, as there are some wicked people out there. People who can’t stand the thought or sight of others successes. People out there who underestimate you […]

It’s so hard to be present. So hard to focus on what’s happening, not in the past or future but now! Society encourages us to think about the future, with vices such as pensions, mortgages, marriage, and life insurance. There is an emphasis on the future and nostalgia with the past…..but rarely ever in society are we encouraged to be present. I suppose it’s a scary thing, it’s like jumping out of a plane with […]

A new season brings a new perspective. If you have been reading my blog post you will know that I constantly reflect on my actions….I am always questioning a lot of things that life throws at me, and as a way for me to sift through all the crap in my head I scribble everything down on a piece of paper and then type it on a computer and upload here. During the recent months […]

Exhaustion is a plague. It is something that consumes your body and does not enable you to get up and get on with your life. It is an emotion which drains you of energy and makes you unable to think. It is an emotion which cripples you. It is an emotion that effects all human beings…apart from the Strong Black Woman (SBW). Yes that’s right, I am a black woman, therefore I am not a […]

With the death of winter comes the life of Spring.  In the last couple of weeks I have lost a dear friend and gained a new god daughter. I have woken up from a deep slumber. LIFE. IS. TOO. SHORT. PERIOD. I’ve never been much of a writer. Never been much of a poet. But I don’t care. LIFE. IS. TOO. SHORT to not be yourself. So I am just trying, trying to be the woman I […]

Happy New Year, yes I realise I am 29 days late….but I like to identify my years by the Chinese Calendar …so technically the New Year has not started yet!  January has been very eventful, award season is in full swing and British actors are bringing a couple of awards back to old blighty! As we end the first month of 2015 on a Brit high, the golden man of the moment: Benedict Cumberbatch seems to […]

I may not be a lady……BUT I’m all woman

  It has been a while since I have jotted down some of my thoughts about how I currently feel about life. I have been caught up in a whirlwind of events…..not in a bad sense, far from it! But with my mind constantly racing and me running around all over the place, I haven’t had a chance to sit down and watch the dust settle. Yesterday I attended the birthday party of my best friend’s […]

  I recently performed a rehearsed reading for an excellent writer; *Alice Baker,  who I have worked with previously many years ago. Alice is an excellent writer with tremendous talent and insight.  I believe she is a writer at the forefront of British contemporary drama. She is a modest writer so would never admit her brilliance, but the most talented people are also the most humble!   Anyway after the performance reading, we offloaded what […]
