Hey sister, soul sister

MagikThreadHead

​So, on Saturdaynobody made it on time, some of us woke up at 9, some called to change time to 9:30,while some had forgotten about the meeting and some were trying to find the venue at 10. Maybe this is what Chaos Magik means, because we were just blazing, I especially loved the part where we would get lost in detail when sharing our lives, then to find the next step for our projects and how we progress together!

For the next Princess to Queen Agenda meeting we have a photoshoot, open dialogue; we need to get things together for the orphanage/shelter and expand the idea of a swap shop , trade and all that.

The Photoshoot will be at Habesha’s Cafe(On Helen Joseph road), dear ladies come as black panthers, since all that we stand for is the liberation of the black woman, that is for the first part…

Remembering Ben Okri’s words – Infinite Riches

“There was a long silence. The wind blew words in

my ears and I said:

‘You crossed the same river twice?’

‘No.’

‘You mean I stepped into two rivers at the same time?’

‘No.’

Dad pondered me, and then he said:

‘Rivers sometimes change their course, my son, for reasons we don’t understand. Is that what you mean.’

‘No.’

He stared at me as if I were ill.

‘You’re confusing me , my son,’ he said. ‘Let’s go home.’

We rose. He carried me on his shoulder and I held up the lamp so that he could see the road ahead.

‘The old woman told me many things,’ he said. ‘Like what?’

‘She said we are going to suffer the future of our mistakes in advance. She said black people are the colour of fertile earth. She has heard about our family.’

We went on in silence. The spirit of the whirlwind passed us on the way and didn’t say anything. The spirit of the whirlwind had a mean look on his face and I feared for the people he was going to visit. Dad tried to find his way back to the sacred grove so we could rest there for a while before we went back home.”
