Of Becoming….

Today is the day I was born, well I was not born today, but on this day years ago, that’s when I entered this world and each day after that I became the man I will be……

The first birthday present I ever got would have to be my name, I read somewhere about how its interesting to note that names have a subtle but definite effect on the person you will be… (you can click here to read more on my name if the curiosity moves you)

hello my name is........

Who am I?

I am the guy with grey wisdom beyond my years and each day the snow creeps into my salt and paper beard as my hair grows longer

Dreadlocked rasta
heart shaped dread locks

I never quite joined the beard gang team because my genes had a hilarious sense of humour, as my beard refused to connect until the snow storm had come.

Salt and paper beard

I am becoming immortal with each word that I share and that is why I keep this blog, for my story, my history and the magic in my ancestry to live on, long after I am no longer here to tell it….

Salt and pepper beard dread locked rasta

I am told I could talk before I could walk, I must have been quite the weirdly freakish child, ordering people around like a boss baby to come fetch me since I could neither walk nor crawl

Boss baby

When I eventually got tired of sitting around, I simply got up and took my first steps skipping the whole crawling phase. Just imagine, I must have been quite the piece of work…

I am the analogue man who has become digital, I stopped telling stories and started writing them, perhaps I am becoming a dragon starting metaphorical fires with a few keystrokes.

I have had my blog enough to understand the need for a blogging niche and also to be perfectly OK with that my blog does not fall into a single perfect niche, its all over the place like a rabbit’s footprints in the snow but its mine and I do me…..

I am becoming… my own muse and in musing me I amuse you….

Becoming The Muse

I try to not get caught up in “EGOnomics” and all that obsession over blog stats and likes but I still love that someone out there is reading me, funny how I have a journal I have never written in because it looks far too nice for my mundane thoughts yet a quick look at some of the birthday wishes from my Twitter timeline show I must be doing something good


The Muse




    1. Then I guess a have quite a lot of birthdays ahead of me to catch up hahahaha thank you.

    1. Niches are so limiting one day I might want to write flash fiction and the next day a burning social commentary then some quiet introspection the day after that I really cant be bound by definitions and you really wont know what to expect in my next post and the beauty of it…. neither will I hahahaha
      Thank you Bryan.

      I am so glad you found you my blog too, of no regrets, what happened happened and could not have happened in any other way ^_^
      Of spending too much time on a blog, hahaha somebody’s definitely been camped on my blog posts ^_^ funny thing last night someone said my blog post titles have certain shall we call it consistency and they could almost predict my blog titles.
      thanks for finding me, you must tell me how you discovered my blog this morning (checks the time … that was around six in the morning Central African Time) and I will definitely come find you


  4. Dear Beaton, I burst out laughing when I imagined you talking before you could walk. The picture I conjured in my mind of you doing this made me laugh a lot. Anyways belated happy birthday to you. Hope you had a good time.
