….You read a part of my soul in every word I write…

The parts of me you will read, are not just pieces of me, but with every word I share I am Becoming…

becoming the muse

I started my blog so I could remember where I came from, how that led me to whom I would become, to witness my present becoming history, the future becoming the present

And I Becoming Me

  4. I love my country, Beaton. You are the heart-beating evidence that your country has hope. Extreme talent and a beautiful heart. Thanks for visiting my blog. I love my country and sometimes cradling the ambition I have for it causes me pain.

  5. Earlier this year I started a series titled “Becoming.” Each with a number for the assignment I was doing from a book called Transformation. I didn’t realize but I think I was inspired by more than one person for this one-word, one-number title. You, and Michelle Obama. I read you both last year. I will try to visit more often. You inspire me. ♥.

  7. You are one of the few people I have come across, who have an old picture and a more recent one on their profile. I have an account whose profile picture is of me seven years ago. Not sure why i haven’t upgraded it, but I guess I like my younger looking self, lol.


    1. From having a blog thats almost a decade I can assure you that niches are so limiting… Judging from how over the years even I have abandoned some categories at some point I was passionate about, I can imagine if they had been my sole niche I would have stopped blogging or I would have started several blogs which would still wind up in the same abandoned state, mind you, not that there is anything wrong with that, sometimes that is the path one has to go to refine their craft…. but there is also nothing wrong with exploring all the flavours ^_^ who says you have to settle, its not a marriage, till death do us part and all that
